I am now in possession of all of the Bonfire programmes and I have to say that with the exception of Cliffe they are all pretty poor.
The Lewes Borough programme in particular is lousy, my four year old daughter would put something better together.

Maybe you should try putting one together if you're so bloody clever

This sounds like a CBS trying to get a rather cheap and pathetic one over on the other societies and in particular Borough. Poor effort you weasel!

That must be why the tourist information office has rung me to ask for more copies of the Borough programme as they've sold out and I've had to tell them sorry but we've sold them all.
If your 4 year old would like to contact us I would be more than happy to listen to her suggestions of what makes a good programme. Oh, and by the way, thanks for your contribution to this year's event by purchasing one.

I heard that Borough only print 700 copies though. Is that true, Sparky?

You heard wrong Man. It's actually much more but then that's for me to know and not information that's of much use to you.

Sparky - it's very important in judging whether a sell-out is impressive or not!

I'm not in the Cliffe I'm a proud Barcombe member but would have to agree with Fanny that Cliffe's prog is the best by along way.
The photos in Commercials are good but Waterloo's and Borough's are poor. No offence intended.

I'm quite sure Man that we, along with the other societies consider "selling out" not impressive, but a job very well done by those that give their time to knock on doors etc. It becomes increasingly harder each year financially to put on the 5th and we are grateful to all those that choose to purchase any of the societies programmes. We are also grateful for the advertisers & sponsors who support us year on year.

How about someone says some thing nice for a change, I'll start. Well done to all the society's for producing your brilliant programs and well done to all the seller's. I have purchased everyone's program to support each society as I do every year they were all great. I wish everyone a safe and enjoyable 5th.

Here's an idea. Scrap the actual fireworks and instead give the money to a worthy charity. all that money going up in smoke doesn't seem right somehow.

Here's another idea. Start living up to your username. All the street collections go to charity. The fireworks attract the the crowds who in turn donate to the boxes. Are you catching my drift yet?

yes I observe the street collections are collected from people watching the parade on the streets. no need for expensive programmes or fireworks ,the spectacle surely is enough?

costume and sound - the immortal words of the late " Gorgeous George" R.I.P That's for carnival societies. Keep the fireworks and encourage the watchers to donate. Oh and Burn the Pope !

Observer, CSBS fireworks are FREE but we take a lot of donations at the fire site for charity. And of course, we are proud of the tradition. Without bonfire the sense of community in Lewes would be lost . It's the glue holding the town together - remember we (the societies) hold lots of other fund raising events throughout the year too.

I have always thought that firesite collections went to the Societies, and street collections to charities, no? I've never seen a Programme say anything that contradicts this. This may have changed since more Societies charge firesite admission, but not all.
