Dear AN INVITATION TO “WALK THROUGH TIME” AT THE OPENING CEREMONY OF THE SEATON MILLENNIUM LABYRINTH – SUNDAY 24th July 2005 It is with great pleasure that I am writing to invite you to the above ceremony and celebration in the Cliff Field at Seaton on Sunday 24th July 2005. I hope you will be able to come. Please bring partners and friends if you wish. I believe the town council and millennium committee are planning some entertainment during the afternoon and evening and there will probably be a barbecue. It could all turn into a town gathering/picnic but doubtless will depend very much on the weather on the day. The formal labyrinth opening will be at about 4.00pm and will be performed by David Shreeve, co-founder and director of The Conservation Foundation, which has contributed to the project. Other major contributors are Seaton Town Council, East Devon District Council, Devon and Dorset County Council’s World Heritage Coast Team, The Local Heritage Initiative, The Countryside Agency, The Heritage Lottery Fund, The Nationwide Building Society and The Seaton Phoenix group. Many others have been involved including Community Service people, the sculptor Michael Fairfax, labyrinth designer Jane Sunderland, Caroline Hoare, Tony Benger Landscaping, Charmouth Fossils Ltd and the British Geological Survey. In addition many local quarries have supplied stone for the pathway divides. Our labyrinth has been designed by the Axmouth-based group The Spiral, concerned with “well-Being” on several levels, and has been supported by many in the local community. We are grateful to everyone for their help with bringing this idea to fruition. It is part of the celebration of Seaton’s 1000th anniversary since the granting of the very first town charter. We are particularly keen that emphasis is given to the unique way in which the design links with the evolutionary story of the adjacent World Heritage Coast and we hope many will experience a deeper “connection” with the land, and with themselves, after “a walk through time” - without having to complete the whole 100 miles of the designated coast. We look forward to welcoming you to the labyrinth on 24th July. Blessed Be, David Kelf A director of The Spiral and Labyrinth project co-ordinator
