We edit the comments to get straight to the point.

Gareth Evans: Am I the only person who thinks the new facelift of the old Stead & Simpson shop is another diabolical carbuncle as HRH would say? (Added Wednesday, October 22)

I.R. from New Town: Why is it that only those that live in areas of development can foresee the problems yet the ‘professional’ town planners continue to operate from within their statistical bubble and ignore the views of those who actually suffer from the already overloaded networks? (This was taken from an article from I.R. published on Uckfield News on Tuesday, October 21. See: Uckfield resident of 44 years foresees town grinding to a halt).

Alex Rothery: I’ll miss seeing his friendly face when I need to pay a cheque in. (Comment on our story about Uckfield bank manager Richard Page taking early retirement,Monday, October 20)

Paul Smith: Hi, I’ve only recently come across the Uckfield News website and just wanted to send you a quick message, to say how good I thought your site is. I’ve been checking the site daily and since then, I’m so much better informed with all the local news stories. Your articles are very detailed, yet also concise and easy to read. In fact, it’s just what the Uckfield area has needed for sometime now. A big well done! Long may it continue and flourish. (Message received Friday, October 17)
