Diamond Jubilee was fantastic

I ALONG with many people attended the Diamond Jubilee Celebrations at Victoria Pleasure Grounds, Uckfield on Monday evening.

I’m sure I speak on behalf of everyone that this was a fantastic event helped by the lovely weather. It was magical to see the sun set on one side of the park and a full moon rise on the other. Everything about the event was superb from the entertainment, music, singing, catering and general organisation. The finale was memorable with the lighting of the beacon and an amazing firework display.

From our vantage point we could see several other beacons together with another firework display but that one was shorter than ours.

This event clearly demonstrates the strong community spirit that exists in Uckfield and I would like to warmly thank all the individuals and groups who have worked so hard to make this such a success. A job well done!
