Uckfield Residents being asked to “clean up” again this year

The Great British Spring Clean is on again for 2021 – your chance to clean your town

Brighter Uckfield are again organising a litter clearing event in Uckfield “We are taking part in the Great British Spring Clean once again, after the success of the restricted but still fun event last year” they posted on Social Media

Brighter Uckfield is a growing band of volunteers dedicated to improving the look and feel of our town by helping to 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 group are holding a litter picking event on Sunday 13th June, for anyone who wants to join in. Families, individuals, companies, anyone who wants to take part are all very welcome. If you want to take part then the group are meeting at 9.00am in the Waitrose car park, and fanning out from there to all parts of town.

“Please, put it in your diaries, and share with friends and family to encourage others to come along” was the message.

The organisers told us “It will be great to see you, and a very rewarding way to spend a Sunday morning! Also, you may not realise that our volunteers cover a much wider area than just Uckfield town”.

The group litter pick the roads out to Maresfield, Five Ash Down, Framfield, Newick and Buxted a few times a year. If you live in one of those areas and would prefer to arrange a litter pick in your area for the Great British Spring Clean, just let them know.

Brighter Uckfield would be very happy to help you organise it, and depending on demand should also be able to provide all the equipment necessary. Are there any areas of litter you would like to see cleaned up?! If there are then head over to Brighter Uckfield’s website here and get in touch.
