Welcome to Wantagh-Seaford Patch, the first and last place you'll need to look for information about these communities.
A daily online local news site, Wantagh-Seaford Patch will keep your finger on the pulse of the community, 24-7. There are already over 100 Patch sites across the country, and more are on the way.
Allow me to give you the guided tour, however if you prefer to hear about it, check out my Welcome to Wantagh-Seaford Patch video.
Our street team hit the pavement for weeks gathering information on local businesses. Hours, contact information and photos are included for every Wantagh and Seaford store, eatery, school, repair shop, etc. Our handy mapping feature will even show you how to get there.
Our events calendar is chock full of places to see and things to do. From library programs and board meeting notices to support group information and BINGO games, we've got it all. In the Announcements section you'll find all sorts of feel-good news about neighbors' recent accomplishments and life events. We could not cover it all without your help of course! So feel free to upload your own events and announcements directly through our site.
We've teamed up with the local police precincts and fire departments to let you know just what's going on in our neighborhood. This will include fires, crime reports, accidents and road closures.
You have an opinion and we want to hear it! Send us your thoughts on T-Mobile's Wantagh cell tower or what the Seaford school district should choose to do with the old Seaford Avenue Elementary School property. Readers will also find columns and useful information from local elected officials and community leaders in this section. Interested in being a regular columnist who can contribute Wantagh or Seaford-related content? Contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
Our Wantagh-Seaford Patch will be in all corners of both communities in search of the news that is important to you. We'll be in the audience at school board and civic meetings, on the sidelines at Wantagh and Seaford High School games, and videoing events and celabrations.
