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!

An unfortunate but unavoidable announcement. We had no specific litter picks planned as part of the Great British Spring Clean, as we were perform weekly picks throughout the year - but for any of our followers who did, please take note.ANNOUNCEMENT: THE GREAT BRITISH SPRING CLEAN HAS BEEN POSTPONED

Our first priority has always been making sure everyone stays safe and so, we have taken the decision to postpone this year’s Great British Spring Clean until later in the year.

Instead, the Great British September Clean will run from the 11 - 27 September, when we will be bringing communities back together to clean up our streets, parks and beaches (we look forward to these days!).

In the meantime, if you are out and about getting some fresh air and doing a litter pick in line with our safety guidelines, show us what you’re doing on social media - we want to ensure all your efforts are recognised.

Everything we do, whether its on our own or with family, friends and neighbours makes a big difference in protecting the environment which can only look after us if we look after it.

In the coming days and weeks, we will be updating you on how you can get involved and show your support to help #KeepBritainTidy.

For now, stay safe #LitterHeroes 💚✊🚮

While others were litter picking around town or in their own roads or neighbourhoods, as happens every week, some volunteers were today helping cut back growth in Lime Tree Avenue.

At the same time, one volunteer got down into the stream running alongside the Waitrose car park, to remove a whole bag full of litter, much of it plastic unfortunately. We clean this stretch every few months, much of the litter is blown from the car park, but sadly some seems to have been thrown in on purpose.
