Sad Announcement – Frank Sellens

The Society is sad to announce the passing of Frank Sellens,  one of our long standing Society Members at the age of 94.


Frank was a great friend of the Society, and closely followed all our activities particularly the restoration of Bridge Cottage.  From his days as a local Courier reporter he was aware of many of the local issues.  He took a keen interest in the local history of Uckfield which he feature in his regular Courier column ‘Sussex Notebook’.  And as a journalist  for almost 80 years, he used his skills to proof read many copies of the Societies Journals, Hindsight before they went to press.


Always the polite gentleman, Frank’s wit and positive attitude to life will be sorely missed.


The Courier ran an excellent obituary to Frank in their last week’s paper which can be seen by following this link.
