Meet Super Ted, a scarecrow made at Holy Cross School for the Lions' Club competition last year.

Uckfield scarecrow competition to run again this year

Uckfield scarecrow competition which was organised by Uckfield Lions for the first time last year is to run again this year.

Residents and businesses will be invited to take part and display their scarecrows – built with an Olympics theme – in the High Street and around town.

Then creators of a selection of them will be invited to show them at the Lions fun day on Sunday, June 5.

Charter lunch

Eighty-three guests attended the Uckfield Lions Club annual charter lunch held at Barnsgate Manor Vineyard on Sunday.

The club was celebrating its 47th year and members were joined by representatives of ten Lions Clubs from East and West Sussex and Kent.

Book collection point

The Lions second-hand bookshop in Olives Yard off Uckfield High Street is said to be going from strength to strength and an additional book collection point has been installed in the Tesco car park for the duration of roadworks in town.
