Get on board with new Hailsham shopping guide

A new and unique Hailsham Town and Shopping Guide has been set up aimed at supporting local traders and companies - and Hailsham Forward is urging more businesses to get on board.

More than 100 local businesses have already signed up to be featured in the Hailsham Town and Shopping Guide, which is free of charge to all Hailsham businesses.

Visitors to the town, as well as residents, will have essential information at their fingertips as the directory provides opening times, an interactive location map and direct-dial telephone number for each entry.

The smart-phone-optimised guide is uniquely designed to be used “on the go” while out in town: signs in car parks and stickers in shop windows display a QR code which can be scanned with a smart-phone to display the guide. It is the first comprehensive online service Hailsham Forward has produced in partnership with the Town Council.

The directory can be found at www.hailshamforward.co.uk.

Business Enterprise Manager Mickey Caira, who helped to establish the directory, said: “The new business directory is a great way for businesses to promote their services. Many local businesses are already listed online and this is growing rapidly. I would encourage businesses to submit their details to the database free of charge by visiting the Hailsham Forward website.”

Business listings are free of charge, although the option to purchase premium listings on the site to make them more visible maybe introduced in the future.
