Hi, begging in lewes has become more "popular". Or though it seems. However, I have seen a young lady begging, she usually wears a headscarf/bandanna type thing, she reminds me of a Romany/gypsy type of person. She sits up by nationwide and the white hart. She has a sign saying homeless and hungry. However this is not so. I have been told many a times that she has got a 2 bedroom house and is on benefits. She is far from homeless, please be careful whom you choose to donate money to

Who has told you she has a house and is on benefits ? Have you actually stopped to talk to her about her situation and why she is begging ? Find out the truth for yourself before relying on rumours. And what relevance is the supposition that she 'reminds' you of a 'Romany/gypsy type of person'? What 'type' of person are you ??
Some people told me you are a nasty small minded unempathetic Nazi type of person who is far from caring - be careful everyone!!

Might be the same person that sits (or used to) in the alley between Smiths and Specsavers
Every time I walk past she's chatting on her mobile phone
She must be on a very cheap tariff
As for the assumption she is receiving benefits that is a reasonable one. Most people in her situation do have benefits available quite freely and I would dearly love to know the situation that denied her that access

I know the girl you are talking about. She does have a house and claims benifits. I went to scholl with this girl, very sad, she has gone down the drugs route which is why she has taken to begging as her benifits do not stretch to hers and her boyfriends drug habbit.

There goes 'Friend' taking offence on behalf of others... Why is it so offensive to describe somebody by what they look/dress like? Would a Romany/Gipsy really be worried about looking like a Romany/Gipsy? I'm guessing not. Likewise, if someone described you as 'wearing a tweed jacket, reminds me of an English type of person', would you be offended? Would it warrant you calling them a nazi?

On a slightly different topic, who is that poor misguided soul who walks around the precinct feeding pigeons (AKA rats with wings) by allowing them to sit on his hand - he looks VERY proud of himself. He's often there for hours at a time. Does he realise it's possibly extremely unhygienic and, if nothing else, ensures that they will be more and more pigeons (and their excrement) in the precinct as a result of this behaviour?

@Auntie Aviator - perhaps you should look in to a person's history and even try to understand the reason for their eccentric yet harmless behaviour
Before you come on here slagging them off
I so hope one of his pigeons sh*ts on your head

Old bloke. Dear oh dear, you are an angry man. I was criticizing the sin, not the sinner. And feeding pigeons is not harmless.

@Auntie Aviator - I'm not at all angry
You seem to have the issues - first by being rather pompous about Lewes architecture and then with your capital letter dig at a harmless bloke with a few pigeons. Is feeding pigeons dangerous then - it's been going on for donkeys years without outbreaks of pestilence, plague ands famine
Must be very dark being so far up yourself
@Glynding - perhaps you need to learn to speak in sense - seeing as I said I can't abide Lewes pubs it would be evident to anyone but a fool that I wouldn't be sending any time in them

@Auntie Aviator the gentleman that feeds the pigeons you are referring to has from what I was told be his neighbour has brain damage to what degree I don't know but heard it was caused by a severe beating he received many years ago. So he has developer behavioural issues

re. Jade, I have just been talking to my Daughter who does actually know her. Apparently she 'lost' her house in Chailey a while ago now, (how you 'lose' a house I do not know, but that is obviously another story). Yes she does have a drug problem, but from what I gather she is doing her best to seek help, lets just hope this is sooner rather than later!

Unfortunately Jade lost the house in Chailey well over six months ago. She has been homeless since then. Perhaps this young woman needs help, or at least a little empathy, rather than your damning judgement.

Actually she was evicted a few months ago due to the state of her house and out of control rent arrears. Yes jade is her name. She is a drug addict and has no intention to try to improve her life, she is a pathetic excuse of a human being, begging for money to buy her drugs. She is classed as a vulnerable lady so she would not have been left homeless she would have temporarily accommodation somewhere. Bed sit for example. She is begging for money to buy drugs, she has a daughter whome she lost custody of about 5 years ago due to her drugs habits, oh and the many men that she sleeps with!

Dear Hm, of course I am not saying that Jade has made the best choices in life, however things are always more complicated behind closed doors. Speaking of 'behind closed doors', I would love to know how you know so much about someone else's sex life, unless of course you yourself are one of those supposed 'many men'!

We wish we'd seen this forum sooner. Someone we know has given a substantial amount of money to a girl in Lewes who sits up the top of the town and she's still there. Rumour has it that she's not homeless and this really annoys us because that money could have gone to someone in desperate need. Be careful who you give your donations too.
