After the event, Cllr Bentley, said: “Congratulations to all the young people who graduated on the second Hailsham Works! scheme.

“Once again I’m very impressed with their many accomplishments throughout their course and I’m also grateful to project staff for their hard work from the outset and the enthusiasm they have offered the young people of our town through this important employment training scheme.

“I wish everyone who was honoured at the graduation ceremony the very best for the future and every success to those starting out in their careers.”
