The 19th Annual Seahaven Business Awards 2024 was a fantastic evening on Friday, 17 May and what an incredible range of businesses entered! We heard some fabulous stories about the businesses that came from our local towns of Newhaven, Seaford and Peacehaven – the Seahaven business community. It really is a business community and the Awards Ceremony and Dinner was and incredibly emotional and happy experience for over 100 guests and sponsors. Newhaven, Seaford and Peacehaven Chambers of Commerce, the towns’ mayors, local MPs and Council Leaders enjoyed a fabulous evening at the Jerrom Hall, Peacehaven. Thank you so much to John Young our MC for the evening!

Thank you to Matt Harquail, our photographer for the evening you can see more images in the new gallery.
