Similar to the mighty Cliffe. Check our guide to bonfire for further details.

I thought that the sale of Cliffe's "Bonfire Guide" had been banned.

Clife said they wouldn't publish their guide to bonfire two yaers ago, and again last year and again this year - they have robbed other societies of much needed funds for their own by nobbling tourists. That's not the bonfire spirit,of "true to each other", more like "to hell with all others". that could be Cliffe's new motto, they are not second to none, they are at the bottom with the pond life.

Agreed. They think they're too clever by half. Run by arseholes who don't understand what bonfire is all about.

The irony of all this is that to the outsider and many insiders too, Southover have more respect for bonfire than Cliffe.

Funny, I saw a lot of Cliffe members helping with the setting up and clearing up after Nevill Bonfire last night. Didn't see many (Any) from other societies pitching in.

That's because there are people in the Cliffe that understand what bonfire is about, and don't just go online slagging off things they know nothing about like some members of other societies seem to enjoy doing on here.

Absolutely right, Rocket science, there are a people in our society who understand. Sadly there is a VERY vocal minority who cause all the negative attention.

fact, all societies members helped out at nevill. fact, all societies had a good night at nevill, fact, all societies had members at Bonfire prayers, Fact, Cliffe have been a tad naughty this year, nothing wrong with printing a time table of the nights events, some societies programmes have done that in the past in fact as far back as 1920's what is a bit naughty was promoting it as the only guide you need to buy, probally affecting the sales of other society programmes, Cliffe have in fact already discussed this with the societies and the matter has been dealt with so any opinions voiced here are irrelevant. Put your efforts into helping your own societies instead of bitching about others , get out and sell harder. too many 5th ers in this town and thats a fact.

It is a fact that they had talked to other societies and said they would include other timetables and for second year running have missed us all out! They are miss informing the paying public and screwing other societies over. FACT

Hi everyone!
I need some information about the Bonfire celebration. My friends and I want to come to Lewes but it seems impossible to leave the town once the fireworks are over. No trains, no bus and we cannot book a taxi. They told me that there will be a taxi rank. Do you think is it possible to take a taxi that night? We need to find a way to reach our accommodation in Southease. Thanks
