The group who runs the Uckfield Late Night Shopping each year have announced that it will not happen this year.
In an announcement on social media it said:
“Given the current government guidance for social distancing, we regret that we are unable to proceed with planning and organising Uckfield’s traditional ‘Late Night Shopping’ evening for the first Friday of December.
Due to restrictions on numbers gathering in public places, we have been unable to secure road closure, this combined with face coverings being mandatory in shops and social distancing restricting the numbers in each store has meant that holding the event as we know it is regrettably untenable.
We will continue to keep the situation under review and if guidance changes during October or early November that relaxes restrictions, we will consider the matter further and advise accordingly.”
