The Town Council is responsible for over 100 public seats and benches in and around the town town.
All the seats are inspected once a month but if you see any damage or disrepair to any of the seating in the town please report it to the Town Council using the Contact Information on this page.
Seats can also be purchased by organisations who wish to commemorate a significant anniversary or event and the Town Council has arranged seats to be installed at various sites around the town including Column Field. Organisations wishing to request a seat should contact the Town Council using the Contact Information on this page.
The Town Council welcomes requests from anyone who would like to provide a seat dedicated to a relative or friend. We are happy to give advice on new or existing locations.
In 2012/13 we replaced and upgraded the seats around the Pottergate Gardens and in 2013/14 we renewed some of the seats in the Column Field. The Town Council have a phased refurbishment plan which will cover all seating in the town.
