East Ward Campaign June 2015
Fiona moved to Chyngton, Seaford in 1992 with her young family. In 2009 she started up a small business helping other sole traders with bookkeeping, HMRC compliance, admin etc. as well as working part time in a local accountancy practice. In 2012 she and her youngest daughter joined Seaford Bonfire Society and found there is a lot more to Seaford behind the scenes than people realise. In 2014, when public determination changed the course of Seaford Town Council, Fiona was indignant at the system that had allowed Seaford residents to be kept in ignorance of how the Town Council worked.
Meeting Sylvia Dunn and Sarah McStravick, joining SRV and assisting four independent candidates in the recent elections she realised the way forward is to work together for the benefit of the town whilst retaining the independent ethos to enable residents voices to be heard in council chambers. Fiona is also a member of Seaford Community Events Committee, bringing together organisations within the town to put on collaborative events: Motorfest 2015 will take place within a year of it's formation.
I'm for Seaford
Debbie has been part of the Seaford life since she was born, and is keen to see Seaford move forward in the 21st Century whilst keeping its close knit community feel. She will push for a Neighbourhood plan, giving Seaford residents more input for future developments and taking some of the power back from LDC Planning Dept. Already active for the betterment of Seaford, she is vice chair of Seaford Residents Voice and is a member of the following: Seaford Community Events Committee, The Base Committee and Seaford Health Stakeholders group. She is also a volunteer for Waifs and Strays rescue and Drusillas education department.
As far as East Ward issues, they have been mainly all covered. I'd add the need for more bus shelters and more information boards. The poor state of the roads and pavements, especially around homes for the elderly. Continuing to work with the neighbourhood police teams regarding anti social behaviour and security awareness.

Sarah McStravick moved to Seaford East in 1977, where she went to Church St school and Seaford Head. Her family have always been active in the community, in business, schools, local churches and community groups for over 40 years.
Sarah moved away and trained as a social worker, she returned in 2008, with her children.
Sarah has been a member of STC. Initially as a Lib Dem with whom she shares many principles, her most trusted principle is local decisions by local people and accountability to the people of Seaford. She is seen by many as a trusted, active councillor, putting the needs of the town first. Sarah has a strong work ethic working in planning, community services and many local organisations in the town. She continues to be an active campaigner on road safety and championing local issues.

Sylvia Dunn has been a dedicated and active councillor with a proven track record of being involved with and working in the community. Sitting on many community groups and organisations enabled her to help set up and organise events and projects that the town has had the opportunity to enjoy and get involved with. These include Seaford 150 celebrations, Steam Train and the Seaford Station Wild Flower Garden, also she regularly runs beach cleans and can often been seen out and about in her high vis, checking and reporting issues to the council.
Alongside her community work, she is very passionate about campaigning for local issues, including dog fouling, litter, road safety, health, environment, and planning. Her background and knowledge in law made her a valuable asset as a councillor, as she supported and helped change governance documents to increase accountability, transparency and good practice within the council. Her strong community spirit and solid ethos in her principles means she will always put the town first.
