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!

It was genuinely nice to get out and clean up a few areas which had been bugging me when driving around! ... See MoreSee Less

More good news from the Bennett family:

“Last week we collected at Victoria after the sports event had finished on Sunday. We were pleasantly surprised as the amount of rubbish following the event was only marginally more.”

This is proof of 2 things which most litter pickers will probably have realised... 1) litter breeds litter, so once it’s picked up, less is dropped, and 2) much of the litter around towns and villages has been there for a long time (sometimes years), so a quick litter pick every now and then makes a huge difference and doesn’t all come back within days.

Anyone can adopt an area, or alley, or footpath, etc, and quite a few people around Uckfield already do. Please get in contact if you would like to do the same.

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.
