Following the request for new youth facility suggestions for the town and a successful grant application from the Government's Safer Streets scheme, two new youth shelters will be installed in Hailsham in the coming weeks.
Hailsham's young people will soon benefit from having youth shelters built at two locations in the town - the first on the Western Road Recreation Ground and the second at the skate park adjacent to the Maurice Thornton Playing Field.
Deputy Town Clerk & Business Enterprise Manager, Mickey Caira commented: "A considerable amount of work in the near future is set to take place to help make Hailsham town centre safer thanks to the securing of over £300,000 government funding,
"Dealing with acquisitive crime and antisocial behaviour is important to the community as a whole and I'm delighted that the Town Council was given a say on priorities for the town and to mark the beginning of what could be a period of significant investment in Hailsham town centre, as well as being successful in its bid for funding for the two youth shelters."
"Hailsham has a strong sense of community spirit, but with some crimes taking place here, we hope this funding will have a positive impact on said crime rates in the area and go some way in terms of our priority of creating safe neighbourhoods, and working with project partners to put together a strong programme of activity that will make a big difference to the local community."
