Volunteers clear overgrown twittens and footpaths on Manor Park

Brighter Uckfield volunteers joined with members of the Manor Park and Hempstead Fields Residents’ Association to clear badly overgrown twittens and footpaths on Manor Park on Sunday.

As well as clearing and litter picking the twitten that runs from the college up to Woodlands Close the volunteers also tackled the badly overgrown footpath along Downsview Crescent between the college entrance and Manor Twiglets Nursery school, writes Peter Griggs, secretary of the residents’ association.???????????????????????????????

Some of the Brighter Uckfield team had already cleared litter from the Dene and at least one of them was up at 4am on Sunday morning litter picking down the High Street.

The volunteers were a true multi-generational mix including a volunteer in his teens and several older members whose age we won’t give away but let’s just say that they have fond memories of growing up in the 50s and 60s!


The residents’ association is grateful to Brighter Uckfield and the association’s volunteers that turned out on Sunday morning – they worked exceptionally hard, filling four huge sacks and two wheelie bins with weeds and cuttings.

Now, pedestrians, mum’s and dad’s pushing kids buggy’s and mobility scooter users can use the footpath that runs alongside the college playing field in Downsview Crescent unhindered.
