Had one of these popped through the door the other day. Deary me, what a load of dross. Not only was it written by whom I gather is a dyslexic intern, it was published by a Kent company with absolutely zero design / layout skills.
Who signed this collection of poorly scripted pages off? Why wasn't it created / designed / printed by a Lewes company? What purpose does it serve? Couldn't the Viva Lewes lot have gotten involved?

Oh yes, the aptly named Lewes Print Centre in Station Street (but you knew that, didn't you?)

The Kent company is one of several that produce these for towns across the country. They must have been the lowest bidder. It's a pity that the result is a collection of adverts with a few fairly uninformative 'articles' that read as if they were cobbled together by a bored intern. I found a guide from ten years ago in a drawer and it was much better.

EofL: "gotten" = low form of usage, even in The States! I'm surprised at you, with your earldom an' all!

Earl of Lewes, the job probably went to a Print Broker or "Farmer".
These people don't have staff or machinery or to have to invest in technology but place the work to the lowest bidder, often it goes offshore.
The Print Farmer then makes more profit than the printer.
The net result is Printers out of business, hence no Printers in Lewes!!!!
