So Market Street closed this weekend. Another major Lewes artery shut on the 'busiest' retail day !!! Why don't we request a closure of School Hill one Saturday to celebrate Nelson Day and see if we get permission. There should be a huge hew & cry if we didn't !!

Watch out for the road works in Offham. The hole and resultant temporary traffic lights from Saturday are still there, but so is the inadequate warning signage as you approach from Lewes. Be careful to avoid crashing into the back of the queue round the corner.

Whatever happened to being able to stop in the distance you can see to be clear?

Market Street needed to be closed for a day-and-a-half for urgent gas replacement works. There were three properties in the road that hadn't had a supply since 13th June.
Southern Gas Network had tried to do the replacement once before by only shutting off the pavement. However, pedestrians wouldn't follow the recommended detour route - preferring to walk in the (narrow) road. This led to an accident between a pedestrian and a vehicle.
The closure, therefore, was seen as the safest method. As for the timing of the closure - imagine if it had been a day and a half during the week!

Well we at the fleamarket were affected badly by the closure , plus we were never even informed of the proposed work ! what chance of compensation ? slim it would seem . And by the way cllr price in retail, saturday and sunday ARE the busiest days , but then Lewes likes all its independent shops , it just won't do much to ever support them !

The Green Party, what do you expect - probably doesn't even know what days there are in the week !! And certainly doesn't care about business and commerce !!

It just bothers me that anyone thinks that they or the government have the right to tell me what I can put in my own body. more
