The countdown is on to the Celebrate Hailsham Day event which takes place in the town centre on Saturday 24th June, marking the completion of most of the Hailsham town centre road improvement works.
Further preparations for the event have been made by the Town Council’s Communities Committee in partnership with Hailsham Forward and town centre businesses, and organisers are confident that it will be a great event offering something for everyone.
A number of town centre shop owners have agreed to work with the Town Council on promoting and creating a successful event on 24th June and, to get members of the public shopping again and remind everyone that Hailsham is again open for business, participating town centre businesses will be offering special discounts and promotions on their goods on the day.
“It’s been no secret that the road improvement works have affected our services and had a significant impact on some local businesses in the town centre,” said Mickey Caira, Deputy Town Clerk & Business Enterprise Manager.
“The last ten months have been difficult for some affected by the works, so the re-opening of the town centre in June is a big milestone for the town and a very good reason to celebrate.”
Deputy Mayor and chairman of the Communities Committee, Councillor Amanda O’Rawe, commented: “Following a lengthy time of inconvenience and disruption for some locals, the Town Council and Hailsham Forward are delighted to show our support to local businesses by organising Celebrate Hailsham Day.”
“The event is a celebration of the roadworks coming to an end and the town looking forward to a better future.”
“We encourage people from Hailsham and nearby towns and villages to come along, enjoy this newly improved space that’s been created and benefit from the many special offers, discounts and promotions on goods from participating shops on the day!”
