Is Viva Lewes an Informative magazine or communist propaganda?

Neither. It's a glossy mag for the local bourgeoisie. You seem to have a strange idea of what 'communist' means.

Comrades, it's definitely not communist propaganda. Far too much organic twine advertised.

style mag with lots of good and interesting things in which, no doubt, will get attacked as being DFL propaganda (but I'm Lewes thru and thru) and like it....Norman Baker does an article and there's usually something about what's on too....oh and we saved some money using one of the vouchers for something or other last year, can't remember what

It's a bit bloody poncy and new age hempish and twine-ish but i promise not to use that three letter word beginning with D to describe the readership. Although it blatantly is!

So what ?, if you don't like it then don't read it. It doesnt cost you anything so just put it in the recycling. It does have a lot of adverts, yes, but as it's free. How else would it get written, printed and delivered to your door. However it does have a lot of interesting things in it if you can be bothered to look. They list bands playing in pubs in the coming month, reviews of pub meals (a subject of threads on this very forum in the past), articles on local places of interest and local history, interviews with local people, both proper Lewesians and DFL's etc..etc.. If you skip the art pages and the ghost written Bills advert, I mean article, then it makes fairly interesting and informative toilet reading !.

They should give you a column Conan. It would be an improvement.

It is very well presented for a free magazine, it is always well laid out and very professional. I also have to say I never really read it but pass it on to someone who will as I think it is just too good to put straight in the recycling!

I enjoy the Viva Lewes - first to read and secondly to cut up into patchwork templates (as the quality of the paper is perfect for such a task)

We use it for arts and crafts too. Each month I'm surprised to see it as I assume it must be next to bust.

I'm glad to hear the paper is useful for patchwork. It's useless for wiping your @rse on, which would otherwise be the best thing to do with it imo.
I resent the fact that trees are chopped down so that my doormat can be defiled with its uselessness. If you had to pay for it, would anyone bother?

ACT, if you don't like it then give them a ring or email and tell them your address and they won't deliver it to you anymore.
