I have lived in Uckfield all my life. That's almost 15 years but I have only really just noticed this problem: kids, like you and me, are living in a town completely run by adults. We don't get a say on what's in the new park, or which shops should be built. But the few kids who do try to make something happen, are shoved aside while the council focus on more important things.
An example of this is the local 'half-pipe' at Victoria. For years, kids have been trying to get somewhere safe they can skate. For years, the council have flicked us away saying they "can't afford it", or "would attract the wrong sort of people". These may be true but there are several ways around both of them. Because that's all we are to the council- kids. annoying kids who just want to get our own way. But we're not. We're small people with our own ideas and opinions that ARE WORTH LISTENING TO.
So I created this site so the youth of Uckfield can come together to discuss their town and what they would like to happen. I don't know how far this will get or if we can change uckfield but by this website, we are one step closer to our ideas becoming reality.
To make this happen, we need support. Support from you, your friends, family, anyone who is younger than 18 that lives in Uckfield. Tell them about this site and meet in the chat-room on a regular basis, to dicuss YOUR ideas. You can visit this website any time and leave an idea in the guestbook. If this web-site works, then your ideas could be reality very, very soon.
