Lightning Fibre Broadband Supports Environment Hailsham

Polegate-based Lightning Fibre, the local Full Fibre broadband provider, has donated five hundred pounds to Environment Hailsham to help the volunteer group grow flowers for the town’s hanging baskets and community spaces.

Each year, Environment Hailsham grows and plants 10,000 flowers and shrubs across the town.

The volunteer-led organisation, based at Grovelands Barn, supplies locally-grown plants to the Diamond Jubilee Gardens, the Dennis King memorial sensory garden and the War Memorial, which last year introduced a Flanders Red Rose to the town centre memorial. 

The nursery is open on Tuesday and Friday from 10am to 12noon for visitors, or those interested in volunteering. Alternatively, you can email environmenthailsham@gmail.com

for more information on how to support the organisation with your time or money.

The volunteers also sell plants at the Hailsham Town Market in June and September to raise funds. 

The Mayor thanked Lightning Fibre who, he said, “make a huge difference to our town, beyond the provision of hyper fast broadband. They are active members of our community and help out whenever they can.”
