October date for Uckfield all-weather pitch

Uckfield’s all-weather pitch is now not likely to be ready for use until October.

The delay has been caused by a need to move two large electrical supply cables which cross the community college playing fields and clip one small corner of the pitch.

As previously reported, the cables effect only one square metre in a corner of the pitch.

The cost of re-locating cables – £18,500 has been paid – but now promoters of the pitch are waiting for the only approved contractor to do the work.
