The Mayor

Councillor Sonia Forster was elected as Mayor of Seaham during an official ceremony at Seaham Town Council in May, 2017.

Councillor Forster’s aim during her year of service will be to work with various community groups and to visit every school child in Seaham, with the message to them “anyone can do anything if they know what they want and work at it”. In addition to building upon the good community spirit that already exists within Seaham. She will endeavour to raise funds to assist local charities and organisations within the town. The charities chosen to be supported by the Mayor during her year in office are the Foodbanks, Alzheimer’s Centre and Community Centres. As part of the Mayor’s fundraising activities a number of raffles and prize tables will be held during the term of office, therefore any support which can be offered in way of donations towards the charity, prize tables or gift bags are greatly appreciated. The aim of Seaham Town Council is for Seaham to be a good place to live and a great place to visit and she will do her utmost to promote the town to this end.
