“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.”

Town Mayor Councillor Nigel Coltman said: “It’s great news that the town centre road improvement scheme is approaching completion, with the majority of the works scheduled to finish in time for the Celebrating Hailsham Day on 24th June.”

“The changes to the town centre that are being put in place will help the town considerably and make the centre of Hailsham a more attractive place to come and shop.”

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 Celebrating 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 enjoy the many special offers, discounts and promotions on goods from participating shops on the day!”
