Hailsham Annual Town Meeting invite

RESIDENTS have been invited to the Annual Town Meeting hosted by Hailsham Town Council.

This year’s meeting takes place at the Charles Hunt Centre in Vicarage Field at 7.30pm on May 8.

Hailsham Town Council has a statutory responsibility to inform residents of the work undertaken by the town council and its achievements during the past twelve months via an Annual Town Meeting.

The meeting will include a presentation and review of the past year by the current Mayor and Chairman, Cllr Jeff Bentley-Astor, along with individual reports from each of the Committee Chairs.

Details of achievements made in the past year by individual oversight councillors will be displayed along with plans for the future.

Representatives from Sussex Police, local healthcare providers and Hailsham Youth Council have been invited to participate.

Town Clerk John Harrison encouraged members of the public to attend with their concerns.

He said: “The Annual Town Meeting gives residents an opportunity to raise questions on matters affecting the parish of Hailsham, see township government in action and old your local council to account.

“It also presents an opportunity for town councillors to update residents on its achievements over the last 12 months.”

The Mayor, Cllr Jeff Bentley-Astor, said: “The Annual Town Meeting is a chance for residents to meet with councillors and raise any issues, no matter how large or small. And by working together we can hopefully resolve them and help make Hailsham an even better place to live, work and visit.”

If members of the public wish to submit a question or item for the Agenda, advise the Town Clerk in writing (Hailsham Town Council Offices, Market Street, Hailsham, BN27 2AE) or email: john.harrison@hailsham-tc.gov.uk
