Seaton Drama Group
Seaton Drama Group was founded in 1950 as the Seaton Amateur Dramatic Society and has been presenting plays on the Town Hall stage since that time.
After celebrating fifty years of continual performances the society decided in 2001 to alter its name to Seaton Drama Group. Although the name changed, everything else stayed the same and we are very proud that some of our current members have been with the group since its earliest days.
We have been very lucky in recent times to have attracted several new, young members who add a refreshing dimension both to the group and also the variety of plays which we can perform. Having said that, we are always pleased to welcome new members of any age, male or female, acting or non-acting. We are very fortunate to have our own workshop where we create our sets and props, and if your interest is in the area of backstage work we would be pleased to offer you the opportunity to participate with us.

Axe Valley Runners
We used to be “the little club with the big feets” but we're not so little now, having more than 150 members. Our homebase is Seaton in East Devon but many of our members hail from the surrounding area including Beer, Axminster and West Dorset. While it is true that some of us have rather sublime running inclinations most are just normal runners (more or less!) with 10K times ranging from 34 minutes to over an hour. We cater for a wide range of ages from our very active juniors up to to some members being in their seventies (and no less active!).
Club nights are on Mondays from 6:30pm at Seaton Scout Hut in Scalwell Lane. We have a 3.5 –mile handicap race on the first Monday in each month and also hold occasional special events such as racing a tram from Seaton to Colyton and the infamous Mars Bar Relays. Some of the slower runners meet on Wednesdays for a sociable jog and many faster ones do speed sessions elsewhere that night and/or hit the hills around Beer on Thursdays. We have also just started an occasional absolute beginners session on Friday evenings for those who would struggle even on the Wednesday runs. We also organise occasional club outings to races en masse (e.g. Haselbury Trail, Clarendon Marathon, Wessex Ridgeway relay) or just to run (e.g the River Coly, a day in South Wales).
The Axe Valley Pedallers

If you are keen cyclist we have something for you too; among our members we have tandem riders, fixie riders, mountain bikers, time trialists, touring cyclists and even an Iron man triathlete. Young and old, families or individuals, you are all welcome so come and join in the fun.
