The only shelter for people using the Victoria Pleasure Ground, Uckfield, is the pavilion, which is not usually open

Victoria Pleasure Ground may get a rain shelter

And it could be a bandstand


A rain shelter for people to use when walking at Victoria Pleasure Ground, Uckfield, is under consideration.

It could take the form of a bandstand.

Town councillors have agreed to look into the provision of a shelter for use by dog walkers and others caught out by a heavy shower.

Members of the council’s environment and leisure committee noted the construction would have to be sturdy, lasting and vandal proof.

It was pointed out there was no shelter at the site, if the pavilion was closed.

One idea was that the shelter could take the form of a small bandstand which could be used for concerts or at events held at the pleasure ground to mark major events, such as the ‘Battle Over’ commemoration next year to remember the 100th anniversary of the end of World War One.

Councillors asked for an investigation of the whole question of a shelter from possible location, cost and durability of materials.
