Excellent event

Hopefully this post won't be shot down in flames through trolling. I was at the bonfire celebrations on Sat for the first time and I thoroughly enjoyed it. I didn't know what to expect but I was surprised, impressed, overwhelmed and stunned by the gravity of the event, the organisation and pleased by the historical allusions [I know some will say it wasn't as good as some previous ones but it was still damn good]. It made me proud that things like this happen in the country because we certainly do not get this in London - it's too diverse and a lot of the sense of nation has been eroded here. Congratulations and thanks to all involved. Commercial fireworks display was also excellent and the best I have seen anywhere.

The level of crowds this year was just about manageable, with any luck the trains won't be running again next year.

I've never been able to work out if Sussex Jim is a joke account or just a really weird actual person but his ability to have the exact opposite opinion to everyone who knows what they're talking about on pretty much every subject that comes up on here is uncanny.

I'm in the privileged position of having a relative who lives in the centre so coming back wouldn't be a problem. But I actually agree with you, if the trains were working I can't imagine what it would be like. I think all the restrictions were a good thing. It's a small town, not built to cope with crowds of that kinds of size. It also concerns me that people who aren't from there would mistreat the area, which I imagine they have done in the past.

That's going to blight a lot of people's view across the Ouse. more
I like the fact it's safe enough to leave windows open and shops don't need to put grills up at night.
