The Town Mayor‘s spring bulb planting programme has come to an end, with the planting of daffodils and narcissi at the Orchard Park site located off Grovelands Road.

Mayor Councillor Paul Holbrook has worked hard in recent weeks to ensure that some of the parks and public open spaces maintained by the Town Council will be awash with colour next Spring.

As well as planting bulbs at Orchard Park, the Mayor planted additional bulbs at other Town Council-maintained sites during the past month, including Hailsham Country Park (lakeside), Hailsham Cemetery and around benches along the perimeter of the Common Pond.

“After winter, spring flowers are always such a welcome sight and bulb planting is a great way to lift the appearance of an area.” said Councillor Holbrook. “Through Hailsham In Bloom and Environment Hailsham over the years, we have been able to benefit from the planting of well a vast number of visible spring bulbs – over and above what would normally be available thanks to generous donations from local businesses – improving many of the town’s verges and public open spaces.”

“I thought it was only fitting if I could contribute towards previous campaigns and supplement their achievements – although on Town Council land and on a considerably smaller scale! My aim through this planting campaign is to help make aesthetic enhancements to our public and green open spaces in time for the Spring.”
