What we have achieved so far…

Over the last thirteen years we have:

  • organised and run the ‘Cuckfield Local’ market, promoting local produce and producers, held in the Talbot courtyard on the second Saturday of each month, now moved to the Rose & Crown car park
  • promoted a plastic bag free Cuckfield and sold over 1000 cotton bags and 400 jute shopping bags
  • promoted an exchange stall at the market, for the sharing of excess produce
  • developed a Community Garden which had 24 allotment plots
  • promoted a ‘Bee friends with pollinators’ campaign to encourage people to grow more nectar rich flowers to support bees and other pollinators, which are rapidly reducing in numbers
  • organised a ‘Bee Friends’ photo competition with the 12 winners’ photographs appearing in a ‘Cuckfield Local’ 2013 calendar. Over 100 copies were sold at the market
  • offered lots of lovely wildflower seeds for people to take and grow in their own gardens
  • planted a wildflower border at Cuckfield Recreation Ground, in conjunction with Mid Sussex District Council
  • built and populated a bee hive at the Community Garden
  • started collecting milk bottle tops and coffee jar lids, which you can’t put in your everyday recycling, to send off for specialist recycling
  • organised films, talks and events to promote awareness of local and global issues

We’re always looking for new ideas – why not join us?
