The Hailsham Town & Shopping Guide

The Hailsham Town & Shopping Guide aims to be the complete guide to Hailsham, providing opening hours, location map and clickable dial-through telephone number for all shops as well as other helpful information for residents and visitors alike.

The smartphone-optimised guide is meant to be used "on the go" while out in town: Signs in car parks and stickers in shop windows display a so-called QR code which can be scanned with a smartphone to display the guide.

Not familiar with QR codes?

To read or scan a QR code your smartphone has to have a QR code reader installed. Download a free QR Code reader for your mobile device.

Once you have a QR Code reader installed on your smartphone, you’re ready to scan your first QR Code. Doing so is very easy. Just follow these simple steps.

  • Open the QR Code reader on your phone.
  • Hold your device over a QR Code so that it's clearly visible within your smartphone's screen. Two things can happen when you correctly hold your smartphone over a QR Code:
    • The phone automatically scans the code.
    • On some readers, you have to press a button to snap a picture, not unlike the button on your smartphone camera.
  • If necessary, press the button.

Your smartphone reads the code and takes you to the Hailsham Town & Shopping Guide. This may take a few seconds on most devices.
