Smashing time at Uckfield Rugby Club fete

A smashing time was being had by all at the Uckfield Rugby Fete this afternoon – there was chance to hurl balls to smash pottery and teams were gearing up to use sledge hammers to break pianos into pieces at 4.30pm.

There were performances from the Stannage International stunt team who leapt vans on motorcycles, free fell from a height and ran around in flames.

Uckfield Concert Brass entertained, there was wheelbarrow racing, tug-of-war, a dog show, a licenced bar and food.

Here are some Ucfield News pictures taken at the event at Luxford Field.


Organisers of the Uckfield Rugby Club fete include, from the left, Charlotte Savage, John Lewis, Wouter Brouwer, club chairman Gordon Buckland, Hector Izzard, Ewan Thomas, Mick Hall and Heidi Greenwood.

The next fall was from an even greater height.


The crowd watched as this stuntman was carefully prepared for this stunt with clothing carefully layered to protect him.


The flames are extinguished after a carefully timed run around the arena.


A fire engine is always a popular attraction at fetes.
