Seaford Beach Access project.

Do you ever wish you could get on the shingle but maybe your wheelchair or mobility aid prevents you getting on the beach? Then this is a cause you can get behind.

The Seaford Beach Access Campaign, the goal is to enable everybody with all mobility issues and wheelchair users to access the shingle and enjoy our beach in Seaford, East Sussex. This will be achieved by having a composite/wooden pathway, leading to heavy duty matting tiles, making a seated platform area at the end. I am working with Seaford Town Council to make this a possibility.

Seaford Town Council has had the go ahead from the Environmental Agency, they have confirmed that it will definitely be possible for this to be achieved. The Council has given me the go ahead to raise the funds for this campaign.

By achieving this project, it will benefit everybody in Seaford who enjoy the activity of being on the beach. For some this is not possible, due to the barrier of the shingle.

Funds will need to be raised to make all of this a possibility. The cost of this will be £5000 but no more. I have started with the goal of being £3000. I have applied for funds through different organisations, thanks to The Martello Rotary Club, they have donated £1,000 towards the project, this money will be paid directly int the beach access fund, managed by Seaford Town Council.

With these funds the whole project can be carried out as soon as this summer. It’s very an exciting thought that there could be access for all in summer of 2019!

The funds raised will go straight to Seaford Town Council, where they will purchase and install the necessary resources to make our shingle accessible to all.
