Time for a fiesta in Uckfield

Gunging, ferrets, dogs, space hoppers, dancing and tents - all the ingredients for the action packed Fiesta Day last Saturday at Luxford Field, Uckfield.

Fiesta Day is when all the town’s Scouts, Cubs, Beavers and Explorers get together to show what Scouting is all about - and also to have a jolly good time.

As well as the main arena events which included a tug of war, tent pitching, a fun dog show, Debs’ Dancers, space hopper racing and the obligatory gunging of unsuspecting leaders, there was a wide range of side stalls and competitions running all afternoon.

Ferret racing was a popular event - both athletic ferrets and spectators appeared to be enjoying themselves.
