The activities of the Independent State of Cuckfield are coordinated by a committee of volunteers, including the incumbent Mayor. Many of Cuckfield’s residents also help out, and new stewards, helpers and innovators are always welcome!
The Independent State also seeks to reinforce the sense of Cuckfield community through the participation of Cuckfield residents in the organisation of, and attendance at, the various Independent State of Cuckfield events.
It is the committee that organises the annual events, including the election night and count, the new Mayor’s Parade, Easter Walking Race, the May Day Cuckoo Fayre and the Pensioners’ Christmas Lunch.
The current committee comprises
Mayor – Leanne Knapman
Chairman – Jim Ayling
Secretary – Martin Ingebretson
Treasurer – Ken Gregory
