“Hailsham Town Council have worked hard on revitalising the town centre, and I’d like to thank everyone at the Town Council for their hard work in entering the high street.
“These awards are a wonderful for opportunity for our Wealden high streets to demonstrate what makes them special to our communities, and I look forward to supporting Hailsham in their bid to go as far as possible in the awards, as well as at the Hailsham festival in a few days.”

“A considerable amount of work is being undertaken by the Town Council and its partners to help ensure Hailsham town centre has a successful future and this Rising Star High Street Award is a good opportunity for us to demonstrate our town revitalisation achievements so far.”
