With regard to the supposed similarity to Royston Vasey how about listing the Lewees nutters er.. I mean eccentrics that one sees around town.
IDM - ya gotta love him.
Reg - classic eccentric
The bloke who plays a ukulele on Cliffe Bridge - His Dylanesque style is improving.
The Osama Bin Laden /Jesus looky-likey - Er.. nuff said
The bloke that wears Hawaiian shift, shorts, sandals and sunglasses allyear round - Seriously, I've seen him in this get-up when it was snowing one day.
The "smelly sisters" - just weird and a bit creepy.
The guy with thick glasses and hat who looks a bit like Chico Marx - often mutters to himself.
The bloke who has a shopping trolley all-lit up with fairy lights - I haven't seen him in ages.
Some bloke who just seems to hang about in the precinct and Cliffe and talks to strangers as if he's your best mate. - He's a new one I think.
Any more?

The sisters look like there from a smelly Tim Burton film.
The man with trolley (Santa on Acid) last time I saw him he looked like he had been adopted,washed and groomed, and very happy.
The guy with shaven head and wooden crucifix around his neck,
My favourite is Chico Marx and his shopping trolley.I think he plays the trumpet.
No Potpourri when you mention man in sandals all year round,do you mean that Guardian journalist who is on Screen burn BBC4, middle aged man in Birkenstockes.

There used to be a bloke who hung round the precinct (and sometimes near the station) early in the morning looking as if was waiting for someone. He asked me for some money once and I said, 'It's a nice day. Why not?' He never asked again and looked away whenever I saw him again. He doesn't seem to have been round for a while.

Then there's the grumpy old chap who wears a cape and has the most spectacular comb-over, he's interesting, and a very odd father and daughter couple. They look vaguely mediterranean, and the daughter looks about 40 but dresses like a little girl, complete with ankle socks. Dad used to drive an old Tiumph Herald.
I love the Lewes eccentrics, you can see more unusual people in an hour in Lewes than you could in a year in Milton Keynes or Maidstone.

The guy with his daughter is Italian/American and all of his children have astronomy related names such as Andromeda. Very strange character, used to be in the airforce. What about the shouty man? He always has a carrier bag and eats biscuits as he walks along. Has whole conversations with himself if you see him in the pub.

The whiffy mediterranean looking man mentioned above died a couple of years ago. He was actually American. He called at a friend of mine's house and my friend's young son (then about 3) answered the door. "Dad"he said, "Mr. Goatpoo is at the door". I don't know who was more embarrassed.

I love the shouty man! He's great imo.
I was in the Lewes Arms once, and one by one, all the regulars drifted from the front bar to the back bar to get away from him. Then another regular came into the front bar and tried to engage Shouty Man in conversation. Shouty Man did a bit of shouting and stomped into the back bar to get away from the new arrival! It was a classic moment, it was as though the new guy had out-madded Shouty Man. Everyone was laughing.
I have listened to Shouty Man, and when I can make out what he's saying, often find myself agreeing with him. I don't know if I should be worried about this.

Pmsl! The dangers of giving neighbours nicknames.
When I was a kid, we had a neighbour who was a ringer for Olive out of On the Buses. My brother kept calling her Olive to her face. Thankfully, he never met the neighbour known as Norma No-Knickers.
Sad about Mr Goatpoo though. I wonder what happened to his daughter?

Is the man with the thick glasses the man who used to wear a trench coat and stand at the bus station all day? He used to rock backwards and forwards and stare at you - creepy!

The guy your on about roly mo is very strange. If it's the one i think your on about Who both need a serious bath, they honk big time. And i also heard she had a baby to her father also.
No potpourri, The guy with the sandles and shorts all year round is a lovely man, very polite, intelligent and could sit a talk to him for hours. I've asked him about his shorts and sandles and i can assure you he does'nt feel the cold. When we had snow i actually touched his leg just to see if he was cold and i can confirm he is warm as toast on skin and in heart and now become a friend of mine :-))

a friend of mine who is in a wheel-chair from birth puts it just about right for me, she says "They laugh at me 'cos I'm different but I laugh at them for all being the same".....Lewes and it's diverse population is a strength not a weakness....and it's OK with most of us

Yeah, its just not ok with disabled people by the looks of things. Why on earth would being the same be worthy of mockery? Thats just bigotry.

We once saw a guy catching a pigeon and putting it in his bag in the presinct. We think he's eating them. I think this is a very good idea if you're hungry and short of money.
