When are the dirty kebab shop and the layabouts coffee shop (nero hero or zero - whatever its called) going to be compelled to clean the pavements in front of their dubious eateries? Also the fat 'big issue' seller near the post office who is Billy Bunter's double (the fat owl of the remove) - why isnt he advised to diet to boost his income stream? The one who chants outside Waitrose alo needs to sharpeen up his act...............
The streets are filthy...................Lewes is dying............

High st local you can make a point without this unexceptable vitriol,your tirade is just as offensive as the mess you complain about.Lewes is not dying,it's hard to be perfect unless you intend to vet people before they move here so only the polite middle class can have access to beauty,as usual.I do not count you as polite middle class if you write the way you just have done.

Bastian, politeness is emphatically not only the preserve of the middle class. It is present in all classes (if you want to bring in class) as also is rudeness and littering.

Mike - you sound obsessed, bitter and jealous.
What have you got against wooden floors? let alone musical instruments and books and education.
Can't read? Or play? Didn't get past signing your own name at school?
Perhaps if you didn't keep looking for dog mess you could have done something with your own life and you wouldn't be so bitter.
Don't blame others for your own failures.

Sorry he has a point,and wooden floors are wierd as a must have item.The behavior of some youngsters from prince edward road is on a par with the brewers arms.

I'm suprised at you bastian.
Regardless of the rest of his pointless and rude class envy - wooden floors are great. I 've had carpets and wood floors and I'd always go for wood now cos it's easier to clean and because the last carpet I had fitted was eaten by moths.
I don't think that not cleaning up after dogs is really a class issue. And the young people around lewes are generally rather nice.

the young people in lewes are nice but some of them run across peoples cars and the trail of damage does not lead to lamport.I will not retract my hatred of wooden floors,they are noisy and hard to fall over on and an abomination to pet hair and fluff.
Dog poo is always offensive who ever leaves it around,that is not a class issue

Too much Harvey's bastian? Why fall over? I can honestly say I've never fallen on my wooden floor. Easier to hoover a wooden floor too.
Kids will be little sods - however maybe I have more recent memories of worse behaviour than that when I lived elsewhere.
Apparently the crime map for the area shows an awful lot of crime in Landport - this is not a surprise as it is generally higher in more deprived areas. I don't think that we can blame the middle classes for everything despite the wooden floors.

Wrong. Landport does NOT show on the police maps as crime ridden. The area around Police Headquarters does though!

Just had a look and you're right. De Montfort road seems like a hotbed of vice. Must be all the floor sanding.

Just to get back onto the "mucky Lewes" thread please (we do get sidetrcked a lot), I would like to add my view on the matter. I commute to London regularly and EVERY day see street cleaners picking up every piece of rubbish up from outside the station. Yes, every day. And the rest of Lewes? Well, pretty grubby in my view. The street and pavements are in a very poor way. My street hasn't been swept (apart from by me) in 15 years. The High Street and Western Road especially are a disgrace, the Precinct after a busy day is and eyesore as well. Its people who drop the litter and I will not take the class view as above but we are all collectively to blame for the poor state of Lewes. Perhaps we as ratepayers should ask the council to divert some of their funds to employ more cleaners to clean up after us? And, just to be clear, I love Lewes!

Lets not forget many of the bins have been removed from the high street and other areas of Lewes, giving some rather ignorant individuals the perfect excuse to dump rubbish anywhere, (I wonder if they do the same thing at home?) I bet not!
The same goes for dog waste, just pretending it's not been left does not make it go away.....lots of people do it, disgusting!
I have lost count of the amount of glass bottles and junk food wrappers strewn along the high street after Friday and Saturday night, an eyesore and just plain dirty!
