THEY got lot's of cheap parking - we don't
THEY got a toyshop - we don't
THEY got a Poundshop - we don't
THEY got lots of chistmas decorations - we don't
THEY got a Lidl - we don't
Almost all under one roof.
OUR chavs are more sophisticated
OUR beer is better
OUR twine is superior
That's about all. I think we ccould do with some fast food outlets as long as we lace the food with contraceptives. That's also true for Bill's though.

Well thank god I didnt move there then. The whole point about Lewes is that it isn't everywhere else. And the only one of those shops which is remotely interesting is 'The poundshop' who are almost like woolies. Bright ideas is a great toyshop in Lewes by the way.

You maybe correct SAR, but have lots of lovely, lovely, lovely ex Londoners to patronise us (while sitting outside 'Bills').

Burgess Hill has a population of over 26,000, so is more than 50% bigger than Lewes. That means a lot more custom for the big chains you're talking about.
The town has few buildings of historical interest or architectural merit, and it is not (I think) situated in an area of outstanding natural beauty. Therefore it is easier to build new shops, homes etc and that has enabled the town to expand in a way that will never be possible in Lewes.
If you want to live in an expanding town with lots of chain stores and fast food outlets, why not move there?

I used to spend quite a bit of time in Burgess Hill when I was younger, and I never, ever felt comfortable. It's one of those places where if you look at someone's pint you are likely to get hit!!! Some of this also might relate to our Saturday morning trips there to the market, back in the 70's and it was ALWAYS raining, and the short time I lived there with a friend and had my car nicked on the second day I had it. Wouldn't mind a KFC or McDonalds though but if I had a choice I would rather live in Newhaven!!

Exactly Brixtonbelle. People move around all the time - usually from a place they don't like to somewhere they do. I can't see why the people who don't like Lewes as it is don't move to the delights of Burgess Hill, Haywards Heath and Croydon.

I am actually looking forward to tomorrows already more
I like The Grange Gardens, and the way the teashop has the most odd mixture of china from the charity shops
