Community Organisations Thanked By The Mayor Of Hailsham

Community, Mayor's Press Releases

Nigel Coltman 

The Mayor of Hailsham has revealed how his time in the post so far has confirmed his belief that the town has a “great community spirit.”

Councillor Nigel Coltman referred to the various functions he has attended since being elected as Town Mayor in May and the opportunities to meet representatives from community groups and voluntary organisations in Hailsham.

Councillor Coltman referred to the various functions he and the Deputy Town Mayor, Councillor Amanda O’Rawe have attended since being elected in May and the opportunities to meet representatives from community groups and voluntary organisations in Hailsham:

“The community and voluntary sector plays a significant role within Hailsham, fulfilling a broad range of requirements for the local community,” Councillor Coltman said. “The benefits that transpire from a having such a vibrant community and voluntary sector creates a number of positives for the town by providing services to those in need, volunteering for those who need to develop their life skills, as well as providing the means for people to become involved in their community or simply leisure opportunities.”

“Throughout the first five months of my term as Mayor, it has been an honour and privilege to be guest of honour at a number of civic engagements so ably organised by local voluntary and community organisations. From these engagements, I have learned that Hailsham has a great community spirit.”

“I am impressed by the work in the town by volunteers who help run these organisations and, having recognised and supported such organisations in the past wherever I can, I am certain that there are many unsung heroes upon who so much depends on the success of fundraising events and other vital work in the community.”

“Hailsham Lions, Royal British Legion, Hailsham Works!, Hailsham Bonfire Society, Hailsham Photographic Society, Hailsham Choral Society, Environment Hailsham and Gallery North to name but a few, work tirelessly to serve and promote our community and keep the profile of the town high, often without the recognition they deserve.”

“It was a pleasure to meet representatives from these voluntary groups, whose functions I have attended. The Deputy Mayor and I wish to thank them for their hospitality and look forward to working alongside you all again in the near future.”
