Morris dancers at Hailsham Sussex Day event 

Saturday’s Hailsham Sussex Day event, organised by Hailsham Town Council in partnership with town centre shops, has been hailed a success by everyone concerned, with plenty of shoppers attending.

Organisers were pleased to have worked with town centre shops on the event held on Saturday [15th June], many of which offered discounts off their goods and services and held other special promotions of benefit to shoppers.

Offering something for everyone, Hailsham Sussex Day featured a range of market stalls selling a range of locally sourced items, as well as live entertainment from the Long Man Morris Dancers, Peter Willson Quartet and The Sussex Stompers.

Hailsham FM broadcast live throughout the day and the event also featured a sensory tent in Vicarage Field, as well as activity stalls from a range of local community groups.

“Shoppers had the chance to enjoy a variety of special offers and promotions during this time and the event provided a unique opportunity for us all to come together, celebrate all that makes Hailsham town centre great and have fun in the process!” said Councillor Nigel Coltman, vice-chairman of the Town Council’s Communities Committee.

“I would like to thank everyone who has helped with organising the event and for contributing to its success, including the town centre businesses who offered special promotions for customers and Hailsham Town Council staff for all their effort put into planning the day.”

Hailsham Town Council is also organising a Summer Market, taking place on Saturday 20th July, at which Vicarage Field will be home to street market stalls selling a range of locally sourced food, as well as gifts and accessories and there a specialist French Market, courtesy of traders France At Home.

Live music will be offered throughout the day and Hailsham FM will be in attendance.
