'Imagine' in Nevill

Does anyone else noticed the stone 'imagine' on a house on the right as you come into Nevill estate?
it is a bit pretentious and selfish, it lowers the tone of the area, and I 'imagine' it would lower the house prices in the road, the last thing people want is to look at that. Wouldn't it be more suited to the back of the house or inside, rather than making everyone look at their views.
Is it just me, or does anyone disagree with it being there?

It looks great and reminds us to use our imagination.It also reminds me of the late John Lennon,so what`s wrong with that?
You are obviously a boring conformist who can`t find anything worthwhile to complain about.Get a life.

Yes I can imagine you throwing a can of red paint at it.
Perhaps you need professional help?

That reminds of the Stuart Lee observation that when somebody says"I`m not a .............but" You know damn well exactly what they are.

I just hope that they consulted their neighbours before putting it up.

Does it fit with the affluent hippies who are from (and have never left) Lewes? Or would that be different affluent hippie scene?

I know the people that live in that house.They are neither affluent nor hippies.
They work for the health service.Before the imagine sign went up they had a notice up warning people about health service cuts and privatisation.
They are not admin either they are front line staff.We are lucky to have them here. I for one like their sign.

Imagine there`s no Council Houses , it`s easy if you try ( wasn`t Neville once a Council estate ? ) so long ago , was it a dream, was it just a dream ? Last time I was in Lewes I drank in the Rainbow . LOL. I used to vote Labour , then came Tony Blair. I`m now in a more Partisan part of Sussex. What happened to the Spinster of the Parish , did she get married ?

"We are surrounded by adverts some of them semi pornographic urging us to buy all kinds of sh#te" - I quite agree, but the difference is that said adverts aren't prominently displayed in a residential street!

I agree with Imogene,
they are people who care, and are making an attempt to do something different.
Nothing wrong with that.

Only a bit of it, and not the bit the sign in question is in (originally the downs estate which has always been owner occupied).

I'm not a big fan of large signs - including advertising hordings - but I've met the couple who own the house and they're two of the nicest, unpretentious people you could wish to meet, so I trust their judgement.

Just imagine if we all wanted to put stupid sign's up
Think I should put
Wits end up
Or what about a big banner all red white and blue or paint my house bright green
I wouldn't get any problem as I'm a nice chap
That's why we have planning laws that prohibit signs going up without planning permission
Even if the owners are a really nice couple doesn't give the right to just hang anything you like up
As this sets a precedent that however well intended gives the green light to others putting what the hell they like up So as much as you may agree with this one for what ever reason
Other signs may be even more offensive or not in keeping
