Luxford Field to be open for parking during Father Martin’s memorial service

A memorial service for Canon Martin Onions, rector of Holy Cross Church, Uckfield, is due to take place this afternoon.

It will be held at the church and will start at 2.30pm.

Parochial Church Council secretary Gillian Youngman said those travelling to the service would be able to park on the Luxford Field, which is immediately adjacent to the Luxford Car Park and can be accessed from there.

Car parking marshals will be in attendance to guide drivers. The field will close at 6pm.

Father Onions died suddenly on the morning of May 22. He was 51 and was appointed to Uckfield just over two years ago.
