Of course it's never your kids provoking them or starting it in the first place....is it? Strange one really, born and bred in Lewes, been here for over 50 years, done the fairs and pubs of Lewes as well as the clubs and arcades of Brighton and Eastbourne and never in my life have I been involved in any kind of fight. Always thought that if you go looking for trouble, you'll find it.

My kids got short changed at the fair. The guy on the ride just stared at them and said "that's alright, isn't it". Clearly some dodgy people working there. Lesson learned for the future.

I take that back actually - at least one dodgy person working there (person, not people). It only happened once.

I once lost my wallet at a fair. 30 minutes later I went back to the ride to ask if anyone had found it. The teenage lad who was running the ride handed the wallet to me, with nothing missing - not even the cash.

Sending your kids to the fair is all part of the game, learning the frisson of life-wouldn't be right if it was all middle class fun!
they'll love the boutique p**s up on the convent field-I mean festival!

Fair play I couldn't have said it better. I've walked my dog for the last few years around Malling fields wherecthe fair regularly sets uo and the local oiks that hang around there with their skateboards are vile and obnoxious. Many of the kids around this town have no respect or manners and come from those stupid "children led" families who eat organic grass for breakfast and a bit of lanolin free wool for dinner. I'd love to see some of those brats attempting to work as hard as the fairground teens do but unfortunately we will never see it as their kaftan wearing Mothers baby them to within an inch of their lives.

My Dad used to be on the fairgrounds. Fairground people are incredibly hard working and generous, and I agree with Fair Play-I know who I'd rather be friends with. Billy Cole is lovely.
