New columnist joins Uckfield News

Uckfield photographer and blogger Bex Maini is joining Uckfield News as a columnist.

Bex, mum of two-year-old twins Priya and Kalyan – who also works two days a week as a dentist – already blogs, as Olive Dragonfly, about family life and will be writing a monthly feature for Uckfield News reviewing her outings locally and further afield.

Take a look at the Olive Dragonfly lifestyle blog and her photography site to get a flavour of Bex’s work.

Bex said: “I’m very excited that I will soon be writing a regular column for Uckfield News to share everything we get up to in and around East Sussex with our young children. My husband and I moved to Uckfield from Glasgow in August 2014 while I was six months pregnant with our twins, Kalyan and Priya.


“We absolutely love Uckfield and exploring the beautiful countryside and have found the area so welcoming, especially with so much going on! Just last weekend we had four events we wanted to attend and the ones we managed to get along to were great fun.”

Uckfield News publisher Cathy Watson said: “We are delighted to welcome Bex to our website and look forward to her first column which will appear on Friday, July 21, and every third Friday of the month thereafter.”
