Council News & Services

Hailsham play area 

New equipment has been installed in the play area located in Carpenters Way in Hailsham, as part of the Town Council’s drive to ensure that play areas are maintained to the highest standards all year round.

Work has been carried out on the replacement of play equipment and modern apparatus have been installed including a new set of swings, springer see-saw and rotating gravity swing.

Funded in whole by Hailsham Town Council, the installation of the equipment cost in the region of £5,000 and is in accordance with national standards.

Councillor Richard Grocock, Chairman of the Town Council’s Strategic Projects Committee which oversees play areas in Hailsham said: “Children’s play areas play a vital role in outdoor recreation, providing youngsters with an area to relax, meet friends and play.”

“The Town Council’s play areas strike a balance between providing stimulating play and meeting current safety requirements, which is why we pride ourselves in maintaining our facilities to the highest standards and undertaking regular inspections and repairs where necessary.”

“We are very pleased to be able to provide this and many other play areas in Hailsham. The Carpenters Way facility is quite popular and the works we have carried out are aimed at improving and refreshing the equipment and it also helps the Council tackle the challenge of a growing number of families with children in the area.”

In addition to Carpenters Way, the Town Council currently manages play areas in South Road, Battle Road, Stroma Gardens, Quinnell Drive and on the Maurice Thornton playing field.

Feedback on any problems you might incur within the play areas and the reporting of any damage is welcomed by the Town Council. All enquiries should be directed to Karen Giddings on 01323 841702 or by email:
