I find it very diff to believe that someone from lewes is not botherd by bonfire, its the smell of parafin, the noise, the gunpowder,the buzz, to live for, you might not want to dress up and get involved, but enjoy whats there, its done for lewes people after all ....

The first out-meetings start in about 5 weeks, you don't have to wait three months for your first bonfire fix. That said, I'm actually going to be away on holiday for most of the season sadly but I'm back on the 4th, just in time! I for one can't wait...

Why can't people just stop bickering and just accept the fact that EVERYONE'S DIFFERENT! Some people in Lewes love everything about bonfire and what it stands for, Novemebr the 5th is the highlight of their year, and that is their right, good on them, nothing wrong with that! And then there's other people who live in Lewes and do not like it, and once again that is also their right. Come on people stop being so argumentative all the time, live and let live!!

Quite right Keeley, everyone is allowed to air their views. Just because some of us were born here we don't have to like it! There are a lot of people that were also born here that love it but I think that the majority of people going on about it these days have moved to Lewes from elsewhere!

I understand that everyone should be able have their view, but to me its like people living in say Rome and moaning about those "old ruins". We should be proud of our local customs and traditions, because if we don't support them or allow the authorities to start controlling them, they will be lost forever.

No I'm not new, been posting on here a while now. Lived in lewes for the past 11 years but recently moved.

I was careful to state "relatively new" in my question. Historically, this forum has been about freedom of speech and frequently peoples views clash. I don't think this should be seen as argumentative, just a difference. Likewise, some posts are created purely to wind some individuals up - but I think they (and the replies) are done in jest.

I never said otherwise. But telling someone to "get a life" IS argumentative and unneccessary.

Except that there are actually a few police around making sure that troublemakers in the crowd are swiftly dealt with and the place gets cleaned up the next morning.
If you're here to troll the thread, you'll have to try harder than that.
