Uckfield High Street set to be closed for late night shopping

It looks as if Uckfield High Street will be closed for late night shopping this year.

Organisers of the annual event say they have decided “for safety reasons” to apply to have the road closed off.

There have always been two schools of thought about whether the road should be closed. Some traders want people to be able to drive in and out of town as usual, but visitors with young children have voiced concern about risks on the road during this busy evening.

Late night shopping will take place on Friday, December 2, and a committee which liaises with Uckfield Chamber of Commerce and Uckfield Town Council wants to make the 2016 event bigger and better than ever.

It is keen to hear from organisations interested in taking part in the event and from residents with ideas who are invited to email uckfieldlatenight@gmail.com.
