Environment Hailsham is holding a Murder Mystery play tomorrow (Saturday August 9).

Environment Hailsham, which was previously Hailsham in Bloom, is holding the Murder Mystery play at the Charles Hunt Centre, in Vicarage Fields, Hailsham, to help boost its funds.

Environment Hailsham is a charity which is run by volunteers who help to give the town a floral presence.

Members said they plant up the flower troughs and baskets around the town to help make it prettier for everyone.

The play is being staged by the Catsfield Players and starts at 7.30pm.

Entry is £6.50 to include a ploughman’s supper.

Children aged 12 to 16 can get in for £2.50.

Organisers said the venue, the Charles Hunt Centre, near Waitrose, has ample free parking nearby.

People are encouraged to bring their own drinks.

There will be a raffle taking place during the evening.

A spokesman for Environment Hailsham said the event would be ‘a fun family evening’.

Environment Hailsham gained independence and became a registered charity earlier this year.

Created in 2008 by a handful of enthusiastic people and initially called Hailsham in Bloom, it was developed by Jeff Bentley Astor and Richard Grocock with the simple aim of making Hailsham a prettier and more attractive town by having planted areas full of flowers which would be maintained by volunteers.

The charity maintains its own finances by fund raising.
