Our sister group have been busy, and their work has stretched far outside of Crowborough. Our other sister group Brighter Heathfield are also active on the roads some distance from their town. Great job to this husband and wife team, and all you others out there! #lovewhereyouliveYes I know it's not Crowborough but, after 8 visits, 36 man/women hours and 81 bags of rubbish, Mrs C and I finally finished Bunny Lane today. It has been quite a mission but the verge, hedgerows and woods are now as litter free as possible. Never seen so much chewed up plastic! Found a crisp packet with Nov 92 use by date, also all the signs (apart from the arrows around the bad corner, that was just too dangerous) have been cleaned with hedges and trees trimmed back where possible. Wealden have been collecting the rubbish for us as it is still in their area. #LoveWhereYouLive <3 ... See MoreSee Less
Some good news. The historic “Bow Bells” milepost no.44 which went missing from the Lewes Road in Uckfield in January, has been found!
The Eastbourne Historic Vehicle Club, which has this year been granted permission by ESCC to restore and maintain these posts, was recently contacted by a local timber merchant who had found it collapsed in the undergrowth at the side of the road, the wooden post having rotted through.
They in turn contacted me as a local, and the post was today collected. Together, we will replace the wooden post, restore and repaint the iron mile marker itself, and return it to its rightful place. These posts have sat at the side of the A22 through our area for over 250 years, and we are very keen to see them restored to their former glory! ... See MoreSee Less
Volunteers from Brighter Uckfield would like to thank the very kind couple who drove out of their way to buy a crate of water bottles and some snacks for us when they saw the cleaning work on the High Street on Sunday morning! And also, another thank you to James from Hartfields, who brought out teas for volunteers working on that part of the High Street. Both gestures very much appreciated! ... See MoreSee Less
