Bring it on. Let's hope the filth don't try and ruin it this year (again!) Lewes for the Lewesians. Bring back the rouser!

Lewes larry dont knock the stripey jumper, it is steeped in the history of bonfire and is only looked upon as the easy option by the uneducated or the DFL'S of this town

Why not go to Uckfield on the 6th September and see if your costumes from last year still fit ?

When I visited this town years ago and stayed in a B&B the landlady told me what terrible people the Cliffe bonfire society were - she supported Waterloo. So I moved here and support Cliffe through thick and thin.

Trying to get my new dog aclimatised for the big night but there seems to be a shocking lack of firework displays within Lewes this year - is no-one getting married or celebrating. Once August is over we are into the thick of it - can't wait.

Please excuse my ignorance, although I m sure that is a vane hope, but I always get these little bonfire cliques confused. Borough are the bunch whose procession is led by a rather verbose Ian Paisley character with a microphone which sadly for some of us has a long life battery. Waterloo are a kiddies group who spend most of the night hiding in the gloom of Market Lane. Commercial Square are the lot populated by predominently white people dressed in a cocktail of costumes of the massacred indiginous people of North America. Cliffe is the domain of the pub revolutionaries many of whom have an aversion to soap and shampoo but not delusions of grandeur; all united in their refusal to play with the other big kids. I think there might be another two but all I can remember about them is they have the word south in common. The one thing all these clubs are united in is a seemingly inexaustable delight in the sound of things going bang. Extraordinary!

I take umbrage that you consider many bonfire people do not use soap or shampoo!

What shall we do with the "Lesser" man?

WASH HIM!

"Lesser" by name indeed Bonfire Bod but greater by nature I am delighted to report. In truth the precariously tall ivory tower I peer down from is in danger of crumbling under the sheer weight of my gravitas and, I have to say, my enviable charisma though it pains me to boast being a man of humility. By the way Taff, wwhat and absolutely splendid idea. I must confess I do quite fancy the idea of being washed. Maybe some bonfire ladies could oblige! No squabbling though please ladies.

Terry lesser spotted carp, what you get up to in youre spare time might seem odd to Bonfire folk! Although this hasnt stopped you taking an interest in it? Do you want to join? Waterloo will have anybody!
