The annual Sunflowers Christmas Market, which took place at the Hellingly Community Hub on Saturday [27 November], has been well received by the public and hailed a success by the Town Mayor, as lots of people attended the fundraising extravaganza.

The Mayor of Hailsham, Councillor Paul Holbrook, attended the Christmas Market alongside other invited guests and officially opened the event in the morning.

The Market featured a wide range of activities, festive music and entertainment, food and drink, plus a wide range of stalls selling Christmas gifts and other items. Santa was also in attendance to greet the children.

Delighted to have been part of the Sunflowers Christmas Market, Councillor Holbrook said: “The Hellingly Community Hub provided the perfect backdrop for this brilliant indoor market event, so ably organised by the Sunflowers team. Organisers really went to town with plenty of festive entertainment and stalls to get people into the Christmas spirit.”

“I’m delighted to have been asked to open this important event and look forward to supporting Sunflowers in other events and with their work well into the future.”

“I’d like to thank everyone who helped make this event special and contributed to its success, as well as the volunteers at Sunflowers Mental Health & Well-Being.
