Meet the Uckfield Town Crier
Meet the Uckfield Town Crier ... the Uckfield News mascot.
He's colourful, wearing a red outfit, as associated with most town criers, with green lapels reflecting the colour of the Uckfield News website and a gold waistcoat as in our Uckfield Directory of businesses and organisations.
This little man knows he has an important job, you can see the gravitas as he rings his bell and reads from his scroll, but occasionally he gets carried away in the excitement of the moment and leaps up and down with joy.
You will see him doing that when there is particularly good news to report.
We've captured him in another pose too. He's sitting down with bell and scroll beside him just about to go off duty and and is ready for a chat - he can get a little indiscreet at these times.
This relaxed image appears in our Uckfield News gossip section and is used as the profile picture on the Uckfield News Facebook page. We hope you will join him for a friendly chat about Uckfield.
What do you think of our town crier? Do you think we should give him a name? There is chance to comment below.
