I've heard that ESCC gave Bill permission to obstruct the pavement with his tables and chairs but that they are now going to have a public consultation before deciding whether or not to give him a licence to do it. It would be interesting to know by what right a council official can give a trader permission to obstruct. Sounds a bit dodgy to me.

I wish we could move (sic) on with this subject. Lets also complain about the other traders who obstruct the pavement in Cliffe while we are about it. Alternatively can those who have anti Bill's Tourettes find a more positive outlet for one's moaning or walk on the other side of the street!

Le Magasin puts crap out on the street as well, lets round on them next for being the ponciest 'Newsagent' ever, apart from the small selection of papers do they sell anything else useful like Mooreys used to. Bloody DFL newsagents boutique! And they don't like bonfire!!!!!!

I wonder if the county council have given other traders permission to use our pavement to sell their goods? Do the councillors know about this or is it something officers do as a favour to the shopkeeper? Perhaps a councillor will come on here and tell us - after all, you're after our votes at the moment. I also wonder whether Bill approached the council to ask for permission or whether they approached him.

Oh bonfirek, do not forget the pet shop, or is that OK because it is not seen to be middleclass despite the antiques?
Le Magasin is not an-identikit newsagent, so what if it is different. Still sells papers, sweets and fags. Also how do you know that they do not like bonfire?

Melons aside, I think we really should concentrate all of our efforts on that FILTH SHOP down in that seedy Cliffe side alley. It's name alone leaves little to imagination. What a disgrace. If we don't stomp it out now they soon too will be putting their seedy sleezy immoral clothing on display on the pavement.

WI, this is where I regularly select my girlfriend's nether garments. These are essential for her health and comfort and as it is the only underwear shop in the Town, I think we should do everything we can to encourage the proprietor to keep it going. You may not need clothing for your calendars, but decent women should not be compromised by your perverted prejudice.

Cliffe is now a great place to hang out in. Cafe's and out door seating is just great, in my opinion. Long may they reign.

Dirty old Man, I think WI was joking in his post. (If he was serious then he needs to get a life).
By the way its not the only underwear shop in Lewes, New Look and McKays are 2 minutes away for a start...

How delighted I am to hear that the the owners of Le Magasin don't like bonfire. Extra big bangers outside their shop on the 4th, I reckon. I wouldn't if they'll follow tradition and contribute to the Cliffe BS, like all the other traders do, or stick to their guns disapprovingly?
Anybody who calls their shop The Shop in a foreign language is poncey beyond belief imo. We must stand firm against this tide of poncification!

A,C.T, they do make great coffee and it's reasonably priced. Havent had a croissant so cant comment on the price.
W.I As for the underwear shop near the cobblers, well their underwear is beautiful and love buying it. Saw a fantastic thong in there about 5 months ago but could'nt justify spending £45 on it, but went in there last month and they had a sale on and ended up getting it for a 10.

Well, I didn't know there was so much going on in Lewes 'in the basement'. I've often paused to tie my shoelaces outside Oyster so I could take a longing sideways glance at their alluring window. Now I shall try out these other venues - unless they specialise in Bridget Jones-style underwear.
