I am appalled at the way Borough have treated the firesite this year.
Any bright spark could have told them that driving heavy machinery on wet grass only leads to the ruining of the field for the next year or so.
Furthermore, they have left the main gate unlocked which is a danger to dog walkers in the field. They have also left up their temporary orange fencing which is annoying.
Finally they have failed to clear up the large amounts of mess left behind by the fireworks and the bonfire, such as unused crates, the remains of the firework bases and much more.
They should be disgusted.

I couldn't agree more Nev! I noticed this whilst taking my daughter India and our dog Ben for an early morning walk so India could experience the nature and beauty of our lovely area.
I hope you will join me in writing a letter of complaint as I won't stand for this to happen again!

Cleaning up after the event is not our problem! As far as I'm aware we are here to entertain the public whilst holding a night of celebration and rememberence!!! If you and the snooty family of 'yummy mummy' have a problem, be proactive and go up there with some work gloves and put in some work! Or call the council

We were extremely unlucky with the weather this year which obviously didn't help with the mud. The clear up hasn't finished yet as member's had to get back to work. We will have a team up there at the weekend clearing up and putting the field back to how it was. We were never going to leave it as a mess other wise we won't get our deposit back.

It will be sorted, unfortunately the wet weather doesn't help. But it can be rolled out when its dry and will be soon be put right, be patient. Luckily the downs have a shallow topsoil and a hard chalk base so it won't be as bad as it looks. Borough will want to rectify this more than anyone i'm sure.

Are you really claiming that the third post in this thread was written by a BOROUGH bonfire boy? I can't believe that anyone would present those views and attribute them to his own society.

It takes years to establish the sort of habitat that was destroyed so swiftly - saying 'it will be sorted' is a bit glib.

What's funny is that there were people up on the hill litter picking yesterday, which has probably been the worst day weather wise since the 5th. Also there was only maximum 10 people up there ... How many people are members of borough? Felt a bit sorry for the few volunteers who braved the weather to make a start on tidying up.

Hardly 'making a start', JJ. They had been up there endless days since the 6th. Looks almost done now, but it would indeed be helpful if they completed the new fencing near the repositioned gate to Motor Road so that dogs can't escape so easily.

Maybe the problem isn't perhaps how many members Borough have, but how many of them actually live in Lewes.
