Bonfire and it's history make Lewes and it's people unique and special. Long may it continue.

In many ways the historical and true culture of Lewes is unpinned by Bonfire. The community makes it happen each year and don't always get the recognition they deserve. Some of them don't want public acknowledgement. This culture shows itself in the way the majority of people care about each other and the town we live in. So thanks to everyone out there.

Amen indeed. I always have a few moments during the evening when it sinks in deeply with me that history is alive and is happening on a day-by-day basis. We have a direct link to those people who were wrapped up in awful sectarian struggles.

The people: I think you mean "underpinned" rather than "unpinned", which rather subverts the meaning!
Otherwise, heartily agree with what you say.

I agree, wholeheartedly. Lewes is and always has been an argumentative little town, and Bonfire is the very essence of that.

QUOTE OF THE MOMENT
I like BONFIRE NIGHT, and of course all the out-meetings which go on around this time - and the loud bang at the crack of dawn!
