As residents and businesses may have heard recently in the local press and on social media, preparations by Hailsham News – in partnership with the Town Council – are under way for a string of events taking place in the town this June to mark the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee.
In conjunction with the national celebrations to mark the milestone, plans are currently being drawn up for a programme of events and entertainment taking place in the town centre from Thursday 2nd to Sunday 5th June to coincide with the extended bank holiday, which will involve thousands of residents, local community groups, charities and schools.
On Saturday 4th June in particular, the Town Council is organising a ‘Hailsham Jubilee Day’ shopping event – similar to the ‘Celebrate Hailsham Day’ events organised in recent years – whereby as many town centre shops, eateries and service providers are invited to participate by offering special discounts and promotions on their goods/services on the day.
The Town Council invites town centre businesses to take part in the Hailsham Jubilee Day and consider offering one or more special discounts and/or promotions on their products/services on the day.
To promote this shopping event, the Town Council will advertise participating business’ individual offers and promotions on a regular basis until 4th June on their website, social media pages and public notice-boards, as well as via the local press.
As part of the Town Council’s support package, the town Council will also produce a poster for each business, detailing their individual offer, which can be displayed on their premises or shop window. Individual social media posts will be published for each participating business, highlighting their promotions and/or discounts. There will be no cost at all for any businesses taking part in Hailsham Jubilee Day.
To take part, please email email@example.com by Friday 29th April, including details of details of your intended offer/promotion to customers. Alternatively, call 01323 841702 for further details.
“Hailsham Jubilee Day will take place in the town centre on Saturday 4th June where there will be entertainment, food, drink and market stalls in the town centre, as well a rich mix of special offers and promotions we hope, from town centre shops, eateries and service providers,” said Deputy Town Clerk & Business Enterprise Manager, Mickey Caira.
“I urge as many of our town centre businesses to participate in the shopping day scheme, in order to attract increased footfall in the town centre on the day and compliment other scheduled events taking place over the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee weekend as a whole. People will always come out for a bargain!”
Mr Caira added: “Summer 2022 will be an exciting time for Hailsham, and on behalf of the Town Council, I’m delighted that we have been able to finance the cost of organising the celebrations, so ably being carried out by Hailsham News with our staff and Council member support. This year, as we’ll be celebrating the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee, we’re aiming to do something bigger and better than ever before.”
“Whilst only some of the arrangements are in place, we are confident that the programme of events to mark the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee will be well received by residents and visitors alike, as well as bringing energy and atmosphere to the town.”
