Uckfield Bonfire and Carnival Society street collection this weekend raised £3,725.36.

In a statement the society said:

“We need to thank so many people from the town, too many to name here, for all their help, support and assistance throughout the carnival weekend and before and after the event.


“It has made us all very happy to see more people than ever in the procession, in the afternoon and evening, and especially all the families out enjoying the carnival.”

Next year’s carnival which will be on Saturday, September 5. “Thank you Uckfield for your support and long may it continue,” the society said.
