Welcome to Seaton
WANTED: OLD LAPTOP COMPUTERS & TABLETS
Do you have a laptop or tablet that you no longer use that is no more than 6 to 7 years old? Rather than throwing it away, would you be prepared to donate it to help reduce social isolation in our community during the current crisis and beyond?
At its recent meeting, Seaton Town Councillors agreed, unanimously, that they wanted to build on the tremendous good will and community support demonstrated by local residents and business owners during the pandemic and that such community engagement would be integral to the Council’s work going forward.
Part of this includes a new initiative where the Council will collect unwanted laptops and tablets, refurbish them if necessary, and distribute them to residents who currently have no or limited access - for example to those in care homes and others who might benefit, who could then be taught how to use the donated items to keep in touch with family who they cannot see at the moment. If you can help and would be happy to donate, please email your contact details to: firstname.lastname@example.org.
We will be in touch regarding when and where you can drop off donations.

Seaton in Bloom 2020
It is with much regret that the Council has taken the decision to cancel this year's Seaton in Bloom competition due to the ongoing Covid-19 crises.
Seaton is the only gateway town to the Jurassic coast where rocks from all three geological periods can be viewed in their natural environment: fossil bearing Jurassic rocks to the east, the vibrant Triassic cliffs just before Seaton harbour and the striking white outcrop of Cretaceous chalk cliffs of Beer.
Seaton nestles between the majestic cliffs of Beer to the west, the mysterious Axmouth to Lyme Regis Undercliffs natural nature reserve to the east while, to the north, the River Axe and its estuary is home to a wealth of wildlife.
Seaton’s history can be traced back to Phoenicians when they used Axmouth as a major port. In Roman times it was the only port of consequence between the Exe and Portsmouth.
The town (then known as Fleote) was granted its first charter in 1005 & re-named Seaton in 1126.
