Find out about Hailsham in Bloom invite

RESIDENTS can find out more about Hailsham Town Council’s ‘Hailsham in Bloom’ campaign and its plans for the future at a special open day on May 14.

Details on the various local competitions organised by the committee, including the Best Kept Front Garden and newly launched ‘Hailsham In Pictures’ Photography awards, will also be available to anyone that decides to come along.

There will be opportunities on the day for residents to ask questions and raise concerns informally with project organisers, and discuss matters relating to local recycling and water conservation with Wealden District Council and South East Water representatives.

Terry Hall, public information officer, said the open day is an excellent opportunity for people to learn more about the progress to date on various projects and future priorities relating to town floral displays and other horticultural achievements, biodiversity and local environmental quality improvement schemes: “Residents can obtain information on the latest developments in the Hailsham In Bloom campaign, as well as the volunteering opportunities currently available.

“Hopefully, the open day will also act as an opportunity for committee members to ensure they are still heading down the route that local people want them to take. It is hoped that there will be a good turnout on the day.”

The public information day takes place in the Quintins Centre between 10am to 1pm.
