We canít make Nevill bonfire this year, so are looking for an alternative that would be good for youngsters.
Would East Hoathly be suitable for children (4, 5 and 8)? Iím thinking mainly in terms of rookies and rowdyness? Cheers.

Eastbourne is your best bet (4th October). Very family friendly. East Hoathly last year was quite a noisy one.

Seaford is same day as Nevill (which is a real shame they chose to clash it rather than choose a less establish community event to compete with).

Thanks all. Can't make Fletching, Nevill or Seaford. South Heighton's a maybe. As is Newick.

Take youngsters to a display like Kingston.

South Heighton is a nice walk if you're in the procession and the pub afterwards is one of the best atmospheres in all of bonfire but bless them, they have a tiny budget for their fireworks and whilst they achieve a lot with what they have, it's not the most impressive display in Sussex so if you're only going to one, I might not pick that one.

Kingston is a great family bonfire but really, these days all the outmeetings are very safe and family friendly. I'm pretty sure they've all banned drop downs in the procession, several have banned flares through the village itself and they all have public areas well away from the society members at the firesites. Your main decision should be which you can get to easily and which has the best fireworks.

You will always get the odd drop down at any bonfire event, as for East Hoathly, they wait until the fire site, the Rookies are thrown onto the bonfire. The firework display can be very loud.
Newick is very crowded around the Bull pub.

East Hoathly is a great traditional outmeeting and not rowdy. Drop downs are banned (rookies only get thrown at the fire site amongst members). However, bonfire is bonfire and you must expect some noise! I wouldn't put too much faith in Nevill being non rowdy.....several of their members (including their secretary and captain of tableaux ) got arrested last year at Rotherfield for being involved in punch ups! If you want a child friendly society, go to South Street ( the original juvenile society).

I'd love to know where Saskia gets her information from, As she seems to be better informed than individuals involved. As I'm aware no Nevill members have been arrested at any outmeetings in there 45 year history and especially not any committee members. So it might pay you to do a little bit more research before you go throwing allegations around like that!! And trying to damage nevill reputation.

As secretary of Nevill J.B.S. and one of the alleged arrestees I would like to put the record straight. First and foremost no N.J.B.S. member was arrested at Rotherfield nor as far as I am aware at any bonfire event last year. In fact Mr Fishfinger may well be correct with his statement.
Personally I am also a vice-president of South Street and my father was a life member, both of which I am very proud of.
Saskia incorrect comments such as yours can be very harming not only to bonfire but for individuals as well. I am sure you are aware that many organisations search the internet regarding job references etc. I would ask that you either post an apology/correction or provide the evidence/source of your claim.
I would be happy to meet with you to discuss this matter (my contact details can be found easily e.g. www.njbs.co.uk). if you care to meet I promise I won't punch you!!!
