Lightning Fibre sponsors Hailsham Festival, Hailsham Artists Network and the Eastwell Place Bridge Arts Project
Hailsham Festival is a celebration of talent, creativity and imagination which will be held from September. Hailsham Artists’ Network organises an annual Arts Trail as part of the Hailsham Festival.
Festival Chair, Tony Biggin, commented, “The arts represent a vital component of our culture, enriching our community and creating a vibrant landscape from which we all benefit. We are very grateful to Lightning Fibre for their support again this year; it makes a huge difference to what we can achieve.”
New for 2023, the Eastwell Place Bridge Project is the brainchild of Cllr Steve Murphy, in response to anti-graffiti efforts by the council on the well-used footpath which spans the Cuckoo Trail. The project now forms part of the 2023 Hailsham Festival, and organisers are inviting businesses to sponsor each one of the 64 panels, which will feature works of art created by the community, including local school children.
The bridge is part of the public footpath that connects Western Road, via the Memorial Institute Club, to the Grenadier Public House in the town.
Lightning Fibre have sponsored a panel, and donated £2,000 to the festival this year, with a package of support totalling £2,700. Panels have been sponsored by local sign-writers Signtek and Children with Cancer Fund Polegate, who support families in and around Hailsham.
Rob Reaks, Lightning Fibre Sales and Marketing Director, recently joined Hailsham Festival Chair Tony Biggin and volunteers at the bridge, and added, “We know how important it is to events and projects like this that local companies like ours support in whatever way they can - be it with their time, their money, or both! The great thing about the Eastwell Bridget Project is that businesses can get involved for just £100, and collectively we can make a huge impact. We’re delighted to sponsor the Hailsham Festival once again, and we hope lots of people experience and enjoy this year’s festival.”
