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!

Happy New Year Uckfield!

We, and others like us, continue to litter pick around our town, either individually or in family bubbles (and that’s not something we could have predicted saying this time last year....). Why not make a resolution to give it a try in 2021, it is much easier to make a difference than you probably realise!

Here’s a local resident who does just that.Happy New Year to you all! I continued to litter pick throughout all of 2020, but somehow I didn’t think it appropriate to report it whilst everything else was going on in the world. But as it is now 2021, and the world continues to turn, I will once again try to show what can be done by just one person, a litter picker, and some bags...

This is a rural road on the way into my town in East Sussex, which since the first lockdown has seen an increase in visitors from far & wide to walk around a local beauty spot, Lake Wood. Of course, with people come a minority who leave their litter, and I noticed that this stretch needed some attention. So, for my exercise today I spent an hour litter picking the verges of this half mile stretch, and it made all the difference. Very satisfying to pick up 5 full bags of cans, bottles and takeaway rubbish, leaving the entrance to our town pristine once again. Anyone can do it, and it really does take very little time and effort to make a large and lasting difference, so I encourage all who hate to see litter in or around their villages, towns or cities, to head out once in a while to do the same. It is very fulfilling, and a safe outdoor activity!

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.
