Clean up blitz for Hailsham twittens

TWITTENS in Hailsham will be the target of a ‘clean-up blitz’ organised by Hailsahm Town Council’s Hailsham in Bloom Committee.

The aim is to make the alleyways cleaner, greener and safer for residents who are welcome to join in bloom volunteers for the cleansing operation in the forthcoming months.

Station Road leading to Newbarn Close and Stoney Lane (from Market Square to Garfield Road) will especially be the hotspots cleaned up this year.

Town Cllr Jeff Bentely-Astor, the chairman of the in bloom committee, said: “Despite work carried out by Hailsham In Bloom and other volunteers last year, public safety and environmental quality problems still persist in back paths and alleyways, which are at times neglected by residents and local authorities.

“We are pleased to be working with volunteer residents again this year to help improve these areas, and we hope more projects like this will be organised in the future.”

Last year other areas were cleared including Western Road/High Street and Sandbanks Close/Ersham Road, removing overgrown brambles and overhanging tree branches from pathways. To get involved phone 01323 841702 (office hours).Visit
