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!

Our sister group have been busy, and their work has stretched far outside of Crowborough. Our other sister group Brighter Heathfield are also active on the roads some distance from their town. Great job to this husband and wife team, and all you others out there! #lovewhereyouliveYes I know it's not Crowborough but, after 8 visits, 36 man/women hours and 81 bags of rubbish, Mrs C and I finally finished Bunny Lane today. It has been quite a mission but the verge, hedgerows and woods are now as litter free as possible. Never seen so much chewed up plastic! Found a crisp packet with Nov 92 use by date, also all the signs (apart from the arrows around the bad corner, that was just too dangerous) have been cleaned with hedges and trees trimmed back where possible. Wealden have been collecting the rubbish for us as it is still in their area. #LoveWhereYouLive <3 ... See MoreSee Less

Some good news. The historic “Bow Bells” milepost no.44 which went missing from the Lewes Road in Uckfield in January, has been found!

The Eastbourne Historic Vehicle Club, which has this year been granted permission by ESCC to restore and maintain these posts, was recently contacted by a local timber merchant who had found it collapsed in the undergrowth at the side of the road, the wooden post having rotted through.

They in turn contacted me as a local, and the post was today collected. Together, we will replace the wooden post, restore and repaint the iron mile marker itself, and return it to its rightful place. These posts have sat at the side of the A22 through our area for over 250 years, and we are very keen to see them restored to their former glory!

Who owns the vandalised bench? Who put it there? and who owns the land it is on? No one owning up! Its a real puzzle https://t.co/c5WSYwQ2oc

Uckfield vandals strike again. The bench used by elderly and infirm patients needing to rest whilst walking from town centre to the Meads doctors surgery has been destroyed.
