Tania and Dean Bennett have contacted us - they’ve adopted the Victoria ground, which they litter pick every couple of weeks. They enjoy the fresh air and the sense of achievement which comes from keeping an area clean - here’s a photo update. If anyone else fancies adopting an area, or already has, please let us know!
The goals and the plastic tape used are still causing a bit of an issue, this time on the pitch nearest to Shepherds Way - the tape attracts wildlife and could be eaten. ... See MoreSee Less
We have recently had a significant number of concerned residents contacting us about the level of litter on the Uckfield and Maresfield bypasses. Unfortunately, for health and safety reasons this is not an area that we can generally litter pick, but we share your frustrations and disappointment in the state of the roadside.
To get this sorted, we encourage those with concerns to contact Wealden District Council. They, and their contractors Kier, are responsible for cleaning all roads within the district (with the exception of some parts of the A27 which are classed as “trunk routes”), and given stretched budgets they tend to litter pick roads based on the level of reports and complaints rather than necessarily on a rota. So, if you have concerns, please do call Wealden customer services on 01323 443322 or 01892 653311. It’s best to call, but you can alternatively report litter online at the link attached. Either way, the more people who raise it as an issue when it becomes bad, the more focus it will receive from Wealden. Let’s hope it gets sorted out soon, as it reflects very badly on our countryside and our town, which is otherwise generally so well looked after by residents. Please share to other sites so that others who are concerned can also make reports to the right place. ... See MoreSee Less
