MORE than a thousand visitors turned out to the Seaford Family Fun Day to enjoy the sunshine and stalls.

The event, organised by Wave Leisure, Seaford Town Council, the Rotary Clubs of Seaford and the Seaford Chamber of Commerce, took place at the Downs Leisure Centre and proved to be a great success.

Seaford deputy mayor Councillor Sylvia Dunn opened the day at 10am. Visitors were able to enjoy music by the Archway Choirs, RaNdOm and the Seaford Rock and Jazz Orchestra. Community stalls, including the Seaford Dog Rescue, Age Concern, Seaford Bonfire Society, Seahaven Harriers, Seaford Baptist Church and Little Kickers, enjoyed increasing local awareness and raising funds.

Displays in the area included step aerobics, Sama Karate, disco and street dancing, ballroom and latin dancing, kick boxing and Zumba.

The Food Fest whet the appetites of the public with various stalls including a stand from Paul’s Plaice, The Cake Stand, Nut Knowle Farm and Downland Butchers of East Dean. Hot food was provided courtesy of Paella Party, K2 Catering (hog roast) and Charlie’s Chickens.

Cycle Seahaven provided free cycle tuning and the Seaford Rotary Clubs provided an excellent Tavern in the Tent. During the event Seaford young mayor Maddie Jay met up with the Fire Service.
