Welcome

Welcome to the new Brighter Uckfield web site!

Brighter Uckfield is a growing band of volunteers dedicated to improving the look and feel of our town – we keep it clean and litter free, clear ignored patches of land, paint neglected buildings, plant bulbs and flower displays, and generally give it some TLC.

The volunteers of Brighter Uckfield try to make our area a more pleasant place to live, work and visit. If you support our efforts, please visit our Facebook page so that you can keep up to date with our projects, and so we know you care! And PLEASE contact us if you know of areas that need attention, have any ideas to make our town even more green and pleasant, or want to join the team!

A lovely morning to take a walk with the family to Buxted Park via Limetree Avenue and Hempstead Lane, and do some litter picking on the way... the kids always love litter picking with the grabbers! It is strange though that people leave bags of litter hanging on fence posts, or bags of dog poo hanging in bushes, as if to say “aren’t I good for hanging this neatly rather than throwing it on the ground”.... only for their neighbours to be the ones who then have to pick it up and dispose of it properly. ...

Many thanks to the Bennett family, who have been looking after Victoria Park. They started it as a Duke of Edinburgh Award project, but now the whole family has joined in and apparently have been really enjoying it.

Anyone can adopt an area like this, so if there is an area near you which could benefit from some regular TLC, then why not give it a go?

If you are thinking of joining us in the morning (Sunday), we are meeting a little earlier than usual, at about 8.45am at Waitrose car park and then at 9am with the Scouts in Lime Tree Ave/Leisure Centre car park to work on cutting back brambles, clearing gullies, litter picking

.@EastSussexCC @UckfieldTC there is poor drainage on the footpath by the fire station allotments. Permanent large puddle. Last week some workmen dug up the grass verge at the top of the path and added to the puddle by pumping muddy water down the footpath. #Uckfield
