Louis - I tried to complete the survey but kept getting to the section which said "You have selected that your spending habits were different before September 2008", which I hadn't; so in the end I had to exit rather than give inaccurate results.

Thanks alot for the feedback. I've found the problem and it should be fixed now. If you would like to try again, that would be greatly appreciated! Thanks

One strange question along the lines of 'Why haven't your spending habits changed since September 2008?' Apart from that, it was interesting to have to think about where I actually do most of my shopping.

I understand the reason why the Lewes Pound was introduced from John McG's write up, but, I just can't help thinking that it's a bit daft as a concept ? Answered the survey all the same - trouble with refering to 2008 is that I didn't live in Lewes then, plus I was working, and retired now, so that should skew the results nicely !

Happy Shopper, don't add a % character at the end, just a value.
I haven't seen a Lewes Pound in years, didn't realise they were still in operation

Pithily put Pete. Benefits either to business or the environment somewhat questionable to put it mildly. From a few discussions with the local greenies over the years it seems like even Transition Town members can't even be bothered to make the case for it any more. Some rather see it as part of an Mad Max style future where civil society will have broken down and we'll all be growing carrots and baking our own bread.
Still, it clearly has some backers as their accounts seem to suggest that the whole affair took over 15 grand (and goodness knows how many hours of effort) to keep going over the last year.

I was involved with the Brighton & Hove Transition Town briefly but it was just a bunch of hippies arguing over who's "Peace Shop" was going to be the official named one for the group and trying to run the whole process through the power of positive energy and peace & love, without any idea of realistic goals, measurable milestones, specific time-frames etc so got out as soon as I could. From what I understand the whole thing in Brighton has collapsed now over in-fighting and people trying to position the groups for their own particular purposes

Surely If it was Ali wouldn't it say Post from "By the bus stop on New Malling Estate"? or "Back of the Shanaz, Lewes"?
