Youth club has a new home in Uckfield town centre

Uckfield Youth Club has a new home and will be operating from The Source building next to the Luxford Car Park once social groups are allowed to re-open.

The club, which had to leave its meeting place at the youth centre in Downsview Crescent because Uckfield College plans to use the building, has reached agreement with Uckfield Baptist Church.

The agreement allows the club to operate at normal times on Thursday evenings.

The Source, next to Luxford Car Park, which is to be the new home of Uckfield Youth Club.

An announcement on Facebook says: “Unfortunately due to the current restrictions caused by the Covid-19 crisis, we will not be opening our doors until such time as the Government advises it is safe for clubs and other social groups to re-open.

“Don’t worry, we will be using this time to prepare and plan some great activities and events for when we re open.

“From all the workers and volunteers of Uckfield Youth Club we hope everyone is staying home, staying safe and we hope to see you all soon.”

The youth club re-opened at the Downsview Crescent centre in April last year thanks to the efforts of community groups working together to combat anti-social behaviour.

Uckfield Chamber of Commerce helped with funding and, in October, Uckfield Lions committed to give £2,000 a year for three years to the cause.

The work of the youth club was recognised in Sussex Police East Sussex Divisional Awards with commendations going to members of the youth club team.
