Refill Seaford and Newhaven

Seaford and Newhaven started up in January 2018 and we’re here to help our community fall back in love with tap water.

Refill Seaford and Newhaven

Seaford and Newhaven are two East Sussex coastal towns which run from the iconic Cuckmere Haven and Coastguard cottages in the South Downs National Park, along the coast to the port of Newhaven. We get lots of lovely wild weather and the sea washes plenty of plastic onto our beaches. Visitors using the coastal paths and the seafront sadly leave litter and we have a problem with bottle dropping in the towns as well.

If you’re looking to start a Refill Scheme, we’ve got a guide to help you get started.

Help from the community 


In January 2018 a group of us decided to take action, having completed beach and beauty spot litter picks in the past we decided to set up a Facebook group to raise awareness and to encourage people to reduce single-use plastic from their lives.

The initial response has been encouraging from a variety of businesses, now we want to spread the word wider and involve more and more local organisations and businesses.

We had our official launch at Frankie’s Beach café on Seaford Esplanade on 1st September 2018 mainly sponsored by South East Water assisted by some great local volunteers.

Getting involved is easy! 


If you’ve got a great idea about getting involved in your local scheme, or you want to set up your own Refill Scheme, we’d love to have you on board.
