SEAGULLS will be the subject of a unique summit in Sidmouth on Thursday (October 31).

The district council-organised event is aimed at representatives of coastal businesses, particularly food firms, and town and parish councils.

There will be advice on:

• Seagull lifestyles

• Waste and pest control for food businesses

• What residents and businesses can do – proofing and control

• Bins and commercial waste

• Pest control services and successes

• What Seaton Town Council are already doing

• The legal situation

Councillor Tom Wright said: “We are organising this event as seagulls have been quite a problem and of particular concern to local businesses this year. We want to work with local businesses to help them gain a better understanding of what action they can take to reduce the problem. I would urge all those on the coast in the food sector in particular to come along and find out more.”

The event will be from 6pm to 8.30pm at Knowle.
