HRH Duke of Edinburgh

10th June 1921  - 9th April 2021

The Councillors and staff of Cuckfield Parish Council wish to express their sadness at the news of the death of His Royal Highness the Duke of Edinburgh, after providing such long and distinguished service to the United Kingdom and Commonwealth.

The whole Council wishes to send its deepest and most sincere condolences to Her Majesty the Queen and the whole Royal Family at this time of national mourning.  Our flag is flying at half-mast as a mark of respect. Owing to the current public health situation residents should be able to sign an e-book of condolence which should shortly be available at

Because of the current COVID-19 guidance and restrictions, people are urged to please avoid gathering in public places: for example, rather than laying flowers in a public area, they may wish to display a floral tribute at home.

Made By Sport – Clubs in Crisis

MSDC Press Release — 14th April 2021

Clubs In Crisis

New grants programme opens today

Made By Sport is a charity which raises awareness of the power of sport and funding for organisations that use sport to support young people across the UK. The ‘Clubs In Crisis’ fund is part of a wider campaign promoting sport as one of the best ways of creating societal change for young people across many of they challenges they face today – and even more so as a result of Covid pandemic.  

Sussex Community Foundation will administer the fund locally on behalf of Made By Sport, awarding unrestricted grants of £2,021 to clubs and community organisations who match the criteria. The total size of the Fund for Sussex is around £90,000.  We are encouraging applications from clubs and community organisations intentionally using sport to improve young people’s lives through one or more of the following outcomes (rather than simply developing and widening opportunities for participation):

  • Developing life skills
  • Building strong communities
  • Improving mental health
  • Developing employability skills
  • Reducing crime and anti-social behaviour
