In response to the most recent advice from the UK Government and Public Health England, we have now taken the difficult decision to close Luxfords Restaurant and the Civic Centre building until further notice.
The Town Council will still run despite the closure of the Civic Centre building but operate differently, with reduced opening hours between 10.00am and 2.00pm Tuesday to Thursday each week. Residents and other members of the public should continue to contact us via email at email@example.com or by telephone 01825 762774 rather than in person.
In these unprecedented times we have taken the decision to delay many of our events until later in the year. You will see new dates for a number of the events and our staff will be contacting people to see if they are happy to continue with their booking or if they wish for a refund. Please bear with us while we complete this procedure as it will take some time.
We would like to reassure you that emails and telephone calls will continue to be picked up throughout the week (Monday to Friday), but with reduced staffing levels.
These are difficult times where advice is changing daily and we will keep you updated on any future changes with press releases, via our website – https://www.uckfieldtc.gov.uk/news/, – on our social media pages – https://www.facebook.com/uckfieldtowncouncil/ and https://twitter.com/UckfieldTC and with notices on the front door of the Civic Centre.
The Civic Centre is home to Uckfield Town Council, Luxfords Restaurant, seven function rooms of various sizes available to hire and the Weald Hall where several events are held each year. The Civic Centre also hires out the council’s other venues: Foresters Hall, Luxford Field and the sports pitches at West Park and Victoria Pleasure Ground. The Civic Centre is conveniently situated in the heart of the town, just off the High Street with a free adjacent public car park. There is disabled access to both ground and first floors.
The Civic Centre also participates in the Community Toilet Scheme.
As part of the drive to make Uckfield plastic free, the Civic Centre is also part of the National Refill Campaign. It provides a water refill station in the foyer offering chilled and filtered tap water for members of the public to refill their reusable plastic bottles.
Luxfords is a friendly licenced restaurant serving freshly made food in relaxed and spacious surroundings. The restaurant is open 9.30am –3.00pm, Monday to Saturday and serves coffee, homemade cakes, hot and cold daily specials, lunches including light bites, sandwiches and much more. Situated just inside the Civic Centre, the restaurant has wheelchair and pram/buggy access and free Wi-Fi access.
The restaurant can also be hired for evening functions, dinners, drinks and canapes.
