A HAILSHAM woman is taking part in the Olympic Games Opening Ceremony.

Sarah Jones, a former Bishop Bell pupil who now lives in Hailsham, will be part of the celebrations at the Olympic Stadium tonight (Friday)

Sarah studied performing arts at college for two years and has been a holiday park performer in Cornwall in the past.

She now works at Morrisons in Hastings but in her spare time enjoys taking part in shows and performances with Hailsham Theatres.

Her love of performing drove her to audition for the Opening Ceremony and she was lucky to be selected. Sarah said, “When I received the email to say I have been cast In the opening ceremony I was overjoyed. We have been rehearsing since April and I have met many new friends I am loving every moment.”

Danny Boyle is directing the Opening Ceremony and while Sarah must stay tight- lipped on what will happen on the day, she added, “It’s amazing to be part of this. It is a dream come true.”
