Sussex Bonfire Societies in festive Uckfield procession

Bonfire societies from across Sussex brought the curtain down on the 2019 season with a procession through Uckfield this afternoon (December 15).

Members of the societies were in the Christmas spirit as they made their way from Harcourt Road, up the High Street to Holy Cross Church for a carol concert.
