Hailsham residents are invited to attend this year’s Annual Town Meeting which takes place at the Civic Community Hall in Vicarage Lane on Thursday 20th April.
The main part of the meeting will start at 7.30pm and will be chaired by the Town Mayor Councillor Nigel Coltman.
Prior to the main residents’ meeting there will be an opportunity for you to view information stands from local groups and talk to representatives of those organisations from 6.30pm to 7.30pm.
Groups attending the meeting include Wealden District Council’s Planning Team, East Sussex Highways, NHS Eastbourne, Hailsham & Seaford CCG, Hailsham & District Twinning Association and Sussex Police, as well as Hailsham Forward and the Hailsham Neighbourhood Planning Team.
At the Annual Town Meeting, the Mayor will also be presenting the 2017 Hailsham Hero Award, given to someone who has served and shown commitment to the Hailsham community.
“Here is a chance to learn about what the Town Council is doing for residents and I encourage people to attend to find out what is happening,” said John Harrison, Hailsham Town Clerk.
“We have a very informative evening planned this year and preceding the formal part of the meeting there will be a fantastic opportunity for residents to find out the latest updates from the Neighbourhood Planning Team concerning the future of our town, and there will be representatives on hand from the local planning authority and other organisations too.”
“Judging by previous years we are looking forward to another good turnout.”
Town Mayor Councillor Nigel Coltman said: “It is the responsibility of all of us to help ensure that the town continues to be a pleasant place to live, work and visit, so I encourage you to come along and put forward your comments and suggestions. Your town councillors will be there to listen, help and answer any questions relating to our services and projects.”
