Uckfield start the ball rolling, here’s to a good and safe season for everyone.SUSSEX BONFIRE DATES 2018 🔥
With a fortnight to go until the traditional bonfire season starts in Sussex, here is a list of dates of the celebrations taking place in the county this Autumn. Please show your support!
We're also pleased to learn from the Uckfield Bonfire & Carnival Society that for the first meeting on Saturday September 1st, the county flag of Sussex will be leading the Uckfield procession! Something that we're extremely proud of and are certainly looking forward to!
It would be absolutely awesome if other bonfire societies could follow suit, displaying local pride and march with the county's traditional martlets flag at these most 'Sussex' of events. A proud gesture which should naturally go hand in hand and something we're sure we'd all like to see and encourage.
Uckfield Carnival programmes go on sale this week, available from Ridgewood Post Office, Allsorts, Gale & Woolgar, Bishops Butchers and Luxford Restaurant. Our members will also be out selling door to door during evenings between now and carnival day. The programme gives you all the times and route of the procession. Please note that the Children’s Procession starts at the station car park this year and not Victoria Pleasure Ground. ...
On Saturday 1 September 2018 the Uckfield Bonfire & Carnival Society will be paying tribute to those people from the Uckfield area who lost their lives during World War 1.
The society are looking for 132 volunteers to take part in the tribute at around 9pm on 1 September outside the Cinque Ports Club in Uckfield High Street. If anyone has links to any of the fallen named on the various memorials in Holy Cross Church the Society would love to hear from you.
Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like to take part. Please include brief details and the name of any of the fallen you are linked to. ...
It is with much sadness that I have to say that a former member of our Society Mr Reg Gladman has passed away. I only met Reg a few times but Val and Pat are very special and we are here to support them and the family in anyway that we can.
Having Spoken to Pat today I am providing the details of Reg's final journey in case anyone would like to pay their respects. Apologies it is short notice but I had to check before posting.
Reg will start his final journey From Richard Green Funeral Directors (Uckfield) at approximately 9.10/20am. I shall be there from 9am should anyone wish to stand with me to pay our respects.
The funeral is at the Down Crematorium, Brighton at 11am.
I hope some will join me tomorrow at Richard Greens to support the family and send Reg off on his journey with respect.
They have asked for family flowers only, Should you wish to donate in his memory they are asking for us to donate to the Alzheimer's UK Research.
