Bridge Cottage is no longer able to accept donations for the town’s preservation society charity shop.
The cottage has acted as a receiving centre since mid-June with donations being quarantined and disinfected before being offered for sale.
Now, due to the increasing risk of Covid-10 and to protect volunteers, the decision has been made to stop accepting donations from Monday, September 28. People are asked not to leave donations outside the cottage.
Volunteers say they will resume as soon as they can and add: “Thank you to everyone who has supported us. Your donations have helped the Uckfield and District Preservation Society to continue.”
