Message from the Hailsham Town Clerk, John Harrison:

“On behalf of the Town Council, I would like to wish everyone a very happy Christmas and prosperous New Year.

It has once again been a very busy year for the Council and we have achieved a great deal over the last 12 months by careful budgeting, working together with partners and the local community.

Our achievements over the year would not have been possible without the combined effort and dedication of town council staff and members, project partners, local organisations, businesses and of course, residents. I would like to personally thank everyone concerned and all those involved in our activities and projects for their support in making all of this possible.

Hailsham is a great town and I know that we can rise to the challenges it has been given in recent months and indeed will experience over the course of the next year in light of the cost-of-living crisis and other economic factors, as this year’s achievements have shown. I am very proud of this community.

Once again, I wish you a very happy Christmas and a prosperous and healthy 2023.”
