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!

Stage 1, removing loose paint (which was most of it) and a wash down, with the the first coat of rust-curing paint to follow over the next day or two. With several layers of paint removed, there is some nice detail of the Georgian numbers, the bow and the bells revealed.

Please share to see if we can find someone who can get to it, preferably before the litter spills out into the river! ... See MoreSee Less
