James West Community Centre building exterior 

Bookings from residents and local community groups are being taken for the hire of the James West Community Centre, which is located off Brunel Drive in the north of the town.

Community groups, businesses and other hirers are able to use the James West Community Centre for community events, sports, business meetings, memorial services and other events, as well as private function hire.

The Centre consists of an 18m x 11.7m hall, able to accommodate an audience of around 200 seated, in addition to two meeting rooms. The facility also includes a modern kitchen, store rooms, toilets, changing rooms and a P.A. system.

Regrettably, the Town Council is unable to take any bookings for some activities, including children’s parties for the time being.

Deputy Town Clerk & Business Enterprise Manager, Mickey Caira said: “Since opening just a few years ago, this purpose-built centre has already begun to play a key role in enabling Hailsham to fulfil its potential as a vibrant and inclusive town and, now that it due to be reopened very soon, we hope it continues to be a popular community hub, offering a range of activities for local residents.”

“In terms of running the Centre effectively since the easing of restrictions, we will continue to follow Government advice closely, react appropriately to local situations as they arise, and maintain good communication to ensure everyone has the latest information about potential restrictions to hire in the future.”

For further information or to make a booking, contact Hailsham Town Council on 01323 841702 or by email.

Please note that hire of the Fleur de Lys Meeting Room in Market Street and the Southview Community Rooms in Western Road is currently unavailable until further notice.
