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!

Brighter Uckfield

Our small group litter pick around Uckfield all year round, but little groups are springing up all over the country as a result of the Great British Spring Clean.

If you, your family, friends or neighbours are interested in joining the growing anti litter / anti plastic movement by cleaning up an area you care about, this is a great way to get started - maybe that woodland at the end of your road, or that alleyway, or the litter in the lay-by you drive past every day. Every little helps!

We will always welcome new volunteers at our 9-11am Sunday town centre litter picks, but for those who want to focus on their own neighbourhoods or to litter pick at different times, this is a great way to get started. Welcome to the revolution!

Brighter Uckfield

PLEASE SHARE so that we can track this down. A little outside of Uckfield, but a cause close to our hearts.

Bow Bells milepost number 47, which has sat at the side of the A22 south of Halland for over 200 years, has gone missing - some time between the 5th and 17th of this month. It may have fallen over in the recent high winds, and been taken away for safe keeping, but right now we don’t know what has happened to it. It is usually to be seen on the southbound side of the road opposite the Halland car boot sale site.

Any information would be welcome. Share far and wide, and particularly to any Uckfield, Halland, East Hoathly and Eastbourne groups. Let’s see if we can find out what has happened to this historic milepost.
