Plans for the Platinum Jubilee event are well underway, and we are grateful for the support of the Uckfield Chamber of Commerce.  A seven strong group of ladies have been working tirelessly to be able to offer what we hope will be a great event.  We are proud to be putting this event together, to celebrate HM the Queen’s 70 years’ reign.  We will be supporting three local charities, Care for the Carers, Demelza Hospice Care for Children, and Sussex Support Services.

It is 20 years since The Golden Jubilee was celebrated in Uckfield, and that was very successful, and enjoyed by many.  We are aiming to make this Platinum Jubilee brighter and better, and we have something to offer to every age group. 

Save the date in your diaries. 

West Park Playing Fields, Uckfield, Friday 3June, 11am to 7pm.

Fun for all the family.  There will be a Children’s Corner with rides, Face Painting, Birds of Prey, Jimmy the Juggler, Bar, Vintage Cars, Craft Stalls, and so much more.

We are producing a printed programme to be delivered to every household in Rocks Park, West Park, and Manor Park.  It will also be available in some local shops in town.  The Event will be advertised widely on social media, throughout Uckfield and the local area.   There is no charge to come on the day, and all of Uckfield and environs are welcome. Programme print deadline: Friday 8 April.

The cost of putting on an event of this size is large, as you can imagine.  We have been busy raising funds ourselves through a coffee morning, and an upcoming quiz night (currently oversubscribed).  We are extremely grateful for donations and grants from a wide variety of sources, including Uckfield Town Council, and to our local businesses who have taken space in the Programme, and, of course, our sponsors.

We would be delighted if any Chamber Members would like to support us, by sponsoring either a section of the field, or one of the Arena events, for example the Cream Teas Tent, or the Marching Band, and the Children’s’ Play Area.  There are many options to choose from.  The ‘Fancy Wheels Competition’ is a fun event for all ages.

In return we would offer you your business name in the Programme and the opportunity to display your business banner around the arena or the area you are sponsoring.  This is a Community Event, and we are hoping to raise a good amount of money for the three charities we are supporting.
