A sports and activities day due to take place in Uckfield tomorrow has been cancelled.
The organisers, Active Uckfield, and Wealden Council, say they have no alternative but to cancel the day because of a weather warning for strong winds overnight and through Saturday.
The Active Uckfield committee said to organisations involved: “This partnership event with Wealden Council has had a lot of work go into the organisation but the health and safety of everyone involved is paramount to us.
“Winds are expected to gust to over 50mph which, even if that is safe for a few activities, will certainly ruin the enjoyment and experience of having you all together giving opportunities for people to join in activities.
“We have therefore, made the difficult decision to cancel which is very unfortunate but necessary.
“It would be much appreciated if you can pass this message on to anyone you can who was, or might have been, planning to attend this event.”
