Uckfield’s newest twin town, Arques la Bateille, near Dieppe, may be recognised on town signs.
At present, the signs on main roads into the town only note that Uckfield is twinned with Quickborn in Germany, a relationship which dates back to 1989.
The twinning with Arques was formalised in 2011 and followed cross-channel visits by children from St Philip’s School, Uckfield, and those from the French school.
Uckfield Twinning Association is looking into the costs of the project. A change to the signs could also proclaim that Uckfield is a Fairtrade town.
