What a difference a year makes – at least when it comes to the River Uck.
Twelve months ago Uckfield and much of the rest of the UK was being battered by a series of storms which brought high winds and flood alerts.
Twelve months on, it is a case of “quiet flows the Uck” as our picture shows. In comparison, we publish one from early this January when the river was in spate.
It has been a dry, late summer and autumn – unless you are a Sussex Bonfire Boy or Girl.
They will tell you that what rain we have had in the latter part of this year has tended to fall on a Saturday evening when they have been out and about in processions.
The portent of what was to come was there, of course, when Uckfield launched the season.
The children’s procession in the afternoon was in the dry but by the time evening came, it had started raining.
