Sponsored planters containing floral displays have been improving the image of the A259 - and the town council is hoping more sponsors will come forward.

So far two planters have been installed, sponsored by Co-Operative Funeral Care.

One is at the junction of the A259 and Keymer Avenue outside the new Sainsbury’s and another at the junction of the A259 and Roderick Avenue outside of Kamson’s Pharmacy.

Peacehaven mayor Eileen Russell said: “These are the first of many we hope.

“The Working Party have been keen to improve the image of the A259 and sponsored planters is a great way of doing this.”

The planters are an additional floral decoration in the town and part of a recent partnership with Paradise Park in Newhaven, which supplied the flowers in all of the roadside boxes and planters.

Cllr Russell added: “This partnership works for both Paradise Park and the Town Council.

“The flowers will improve the image of the town and the road, while Paradise Park has the opportunity to spread their good name into neighbouring towns.”
