Hailsham Town Council has reintroduced normal opening hours at the public reception area located in Market Street, following a reduction in open times resulting from the Covid-19 pandemic.

The reception and public telephone line has now returned to being staffed on Mondays to Fridays (except bank holidays) between 9am and 4pm.

The Town Council offices in Market Street continues to house its resident and visitor information point in the front reception, whereby people are being offered a one-stop pick-up point for all enquiries and a wide range of locally produced leaflets, brochures and other information is readily available.

The information point is staffed to offer free help and advice for day visitors and group travel organisers on attractions, guided tours, festivals, accommodation and events in the locality, as well as details on places to visit in nearby areas. Free help and information are also available to residents on local and council services, community safety, general consumer advice and public transport – including timetables for local buses.

People can also learn more about the town’s heritage and historical significance by walking the Hailsham Heritage Trail, copies of the map/guide are available to purchase for £2 from reception. The Trail includes historical pictures and information on buildings and locations of interest, and the map itself directs people around the town centre and its outskirts passing through the sites of interest.

“Although Covid-19 hasn’t gone away, we’re in a much better place now thanks to high vaccination rates and immunity in the population to resume full/normal opening hours for our public reception area,” said Town Mayor Cllr Paul Holbrook. “As well as using the reception as a community hub for public information and enquiries regarding our land, properties and services, the Town Council is committed to enabling the public to access accurate, up-to-date information from a variety of channels and media. From this, we are certain that Hailsham residents will find having such helpful information available to them to be of value.”

“Our information displays contain excellent sources of information on a number of different things, as well as Hailsham Town Guides, area maps, and information on some of the town’s public open spaces are available for people to read or take away.”
