I say chaps could anyone inform me if Southover are attending the celebrations at Barcombe tomorrow night. I understand that it is invitation only and was informed today by a chum of mine from the magnificent Phoenix walking group that they hadn't been invited. If indeed we are going would it be possible for someone to post the directions to the said village. Thanks in advance Chaw.

Pheonix no nuthing. True Bonfire boyes put on a stripey jumper, go to the nearest hostilery and have no idea what a rank of 3 is. the future of bonfire is in the pub carpark.

Dull bickering about Phoenix aside, I had a great night last night at Barcombe, even from a position behind the bar instead of in front of it. Very good natured crowd, huge procession and massive, Cliffe sing-song at the end, what more could you ask for to round off the season?

@Uckersbarry. Stripy jumpers = part of the original bonfire costume worn by everyone as a disguise to avoid identification by the authorities. Therefore it is really the most valid and appropriate costume you could wear. Trouble is, too many people don't understand what Bonfire is about, and go out expecting to see a carnival.

"Trouble is, too many people don't understand what Bonfire is about" and that includes the massed ranks of "smugglers". Not all are a complete waste of space but a pretty high proportion of smugglers wouldn't be missed. They've got no sense of what bonfire is really about and see it as a good excuse to get hammered and create trouble for societies with their lack of respect or knowledge of bonfire traditions.
