Hellingly 1st XV welcomed Seaford to Horsebridge Rec on Saturday in front of a packed crowd. The game started with Hellingly dominating possession and territory only to be withheld by a strong Seaford defence, however the constant Hellingly attack soon became too much as Number 8 James Grey picked from the back of a dominant scrum to crash over the line from 15m out, with Huw Jones slotting the conversion to make the game 7-0.

As sailing often takes place all year round and the community is spread all over the globe, the damage is often far worse than other water based activities. There are many simple changes we can make to protect our oceans.
