My name is Debbie and I am the Chairman of the newly formed Buxted Bonfire Society
I am looking into the history of the past Buxted Bonfire Society which I believe disbanded in the early 1980's and wondered if anyone knew any information about the former Buxted Bonfire Society?
Thank you in advance
Tonight is the night we as Uckfield Bonfire & Carnival Society present the monies collected in our buckets on carnival night to charities and groups in our area. We couldn't do this without all the wonderful support we receive from all of you our community by putting your money in the buckets on the night. Thank you all so very much. Also I need to say thanks to our fellow societies and the groups that join us in procession and support behind the scenes, you are awesome. I've been contacted by a couple of new groups that are hoping to put a float in this year already and our preparations are also under way... Here's to Uckfield Carnival 2017 and we look forward to seeing you all there. Please share our page with friends and help spread the word. Jackie ...
The service of thanksgiving for the life of Frances Brown took place this morning at the Holy Cross Church. The service was led by the Reverend Christian Mitchell. Frances was well known in Uckfield and was involved in many local organisations. The Eulogy was read on behalf of the family by Chris Sh...
I am writing to advise that with deep sadness we are announcing the passing of one of our Members, Mrs Frances Brown on the 24th December after suffering from Dementia in her final years.
Frances has been a member of the society for about 15 years and supported Bonfire before that through Lynne being in the NTC band and more.
As many will know she was an incredible lady, involved in many things within the community and always greeted everyone with a smile and such kindness, although as lynne and I were saying the other day, she was good at providing that parental look that kept us on the straighten narrow when needed. She was a fantastic support encouraging myself and my children when we first joined the Society which has carried on through the support we now get through our lovely Lynne.
Please could you all join me in sending love and sympathy to the family especially Our Lynne, Paul, Chloe and Mark.
In case any would like to attend, the funeral will be on Friday 20th January, 11 am at Holy Cross Church, Uckfield followed by refreshments at The Belmont Centre. There will be a cremation at 3.15 pm at Eastbourne Crematorium for family and friends.
It has been asked that there are Family flowers only and donations are made to the Alzheimer's Society through Richard Green Funeral Service, 125 High Street, Uckfield, TN22 1RN
