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!

Many thanks to the 33 people who made for a very successful Great British September Clean on Sunday morning! A large amount of litter was picked up by small, socially distanced groups and families, from several areas across the town including the Victoria Ground, the industrial estate, both sides of (and in!) the River Uck, Manor Park, and the old railway line.

A good time was had by all, and a haul of 30 bags was deposited for collection by Wealden District Council. The most unusual finds of the day go to Lillian, Luke and Mia who found a load of dumped hi-viz clothing at Victoria, and to Oscar and Barnaby for a (very off target) golf ball on the old railway line. Well done and a big thank you to everybody.

Don’t forget, this Sunday we will holding a (socially distanced) community litter pick, for anyone to join, including families young and old. It’s also a good opportunity for Brighter Uckfield members past and present from all parts of town and the surrounding area to come and join in. We’ll be venturing to parts of town that are a little “off the beaten track” like the old railway line (if you pardon the pun!) so it might be good to wear older jeans and boots.

We will be providing all equipment, just turn up and meet us in Waitrose car park, Uckfield, Sunday morning at 9am. It would be good to know in advance if you are planning to come along, so please message us or email brighter.uckfield@hotmail.co.uk. But no problem if you can’t commit in advance, just turn up... we look forward to seeing you there, whether you’re interested in litter picking for the first time, or are an old hand!
