Alternative Olympic Torch Run

Sadly, the Olympic torch will not be passing through Uckfield town on it’s way through Wealden to London. 
The town’s Festival Association has therefore organised an alternative. 


During the morning of Tuesday 17th July between 10.30am and 11.15am, children from six primary schools in Uckfield including
Manor will be taking part in an alternative Torch Run, which will form part of the Uckfield Festival celebrations. 
The children will carry torches designed by students from UCTC along a designated 2.9 mile route, with each school covering a 750 yard section. 
The route will be marshalled by members of the Rotary Club and the Lions but if any parents would like to volunteer to act as marshals,
they should please contact Dorothy Sparks on 01825 764287/ 


As Manor is a large primary school, only our Year 5 children will be taking part.   

Our section of the route is from ‘Old Orchard’, London Road (first house on the left hand side after the 40mph sign when travelling
from the A272) to Jeffreys Way on the left hand side.  There will be a vehicle travelling in front of the runners and one behind
which will have a first aider on board.
