Walking Races & Children’s Easter Egg Hunt: organised by the Independent State of Cuckfield Hunt takes place on Easter Monday, 28th March, in the Recreation Ground. The Walking Race starts and finishes in the Rec, with the course of approximately 5 miles going via Ansty, Deaks Lane and Whitemans Green.
