UCKFIELD.CO.UK was established way back in Jan 2000 – four years before FaceBook! Our mission from the start was to provide a centre point for anybody with an interest in the TN22 area. 

We provided free pages for local associations, clubs and charities. Our Noticeboard and Guest Book became very popular especially with people researching family trees or looking for old friends from the area. But regretfully the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR)  act has now made it impossible to continue this service.

The World has changed a lot since 2000, and local community sites are rapidly losing their raison d’etre. It’s hardly worth maintaining a list of local businesses, restaurants, clubs, etc when Google has everything indexed, mapped and reviewed. Facebook has become ‘The Internet’ for a vast number of people and along with other social media has nullified the need for me to continue with notices and message boards.

It’s unfortunate that Facebook has failed to become that platform which promised to level society and distribute power for the good of all. Nowadays it seems people are most amused by pets doing stupid things, and it’s barely noticeable while scrolling down for the next amusing snippet that it’s become a tool for powerful actors interfering with society and the way we think.

So here we are at the end of 2020 looking for a reason to exist – any ideas will be gratefully received. 

 Here’s a few news articles that need sharing.
