I've heard via SSBS that the bus company who provided transport to ALL the society's out meetings have just announced they'll no longer provide services as of today. I'm assuming Cliffe have burned another bridge for everyone else?

I heard that. I can only assume Cliffe vomited all over a bus yet again and that was the last straw.

Same coach company serve all BSs then?
Only Cliffe members boisterous on busses then?
Let's not start casting the first stone...

I went on an out meeting with Cliffe a couple of years ago and they were utterly vile. I've never been so embarrassed to be associated with them than when they shouted and bullied their way around the village. Cancellation my membership a week later and joined another society where I've been happy ever since.

Will there be a handbag fight?! Who is this AF? Is Smarties being against his will? Does one society vomit more than another? All this and more to come on the Lewes Forum after this short break ...

Clive and Sean - yes, It was definitely the Cliffe. They were wearing yellow and black, and red and white. Must have been them! Still everything is Cliffe's fault isn't it!

I'm not with any society's but why does cliff get the blame for everything I love watching the 5th

Getting the blame for everything is cyclical. A few years ago it was Borough, then Southover had a turn, now it's Cliffe.

From what I understand, this has nothing to do with Cliffe, but was Commercial and Waterloo. Commercial for abusing the driver, and Waterloo for smoking substances on the coach.

I think Cliffe use a totally different bus company anyway so their out meeting transport won't be affected.
Facts are quite useful sometimes.

What's an out meeting and why do people take a once a year bonfire so seriously?

If you go to Newick on Saturday, you will see at least two societies turn up by coach so I guess OP has been misinformed.

I had heard that Regency were throwing their toys out of their, er, coach. Great for them if they can afford to lose all that repeat business.

Repeat business was nothing to do with what was happening before this went public. It has been stated that the transport business plan for the local area went to approval at a later stage than expected and as a consequence it severely hampered what was expected of the fact that services were distrupted as part of the process. Although auditing commenced it didn't resolve the situation is still ongoing and careful management will hopefully address those concerns.

Having that post in plain English rather than business speak would have been more informative.
Whose transport business plan was late getting approved? Regency's or a local authority?
If the latter, how does that affect the company's ability to honour private bookings made long in advance?

Cliffe respect their coaches and the drivers. Hence, Cliffes transport arrangements for the rest of the season are unaffected by the actions of another society.
I think it's very harsh of Regency to ban South Street on the behaviour of a different society.
May be the offending society should be helping SSBS Find a new coach provider.

Clearly the actions of Commercial and Waterloo at the Hastings outmeeting /outfire have bought all of Lewes Bonfire into disrepute, at least when it comes to coach companies.
This is clearly a much worse crime than Cliffes soppy programme.

Why the dig at AF? As far as I can see there is no comment from an AF. Is her husband vile? If so, why?

Funny old life Bonfire, my spy with only one eye tells me the Borough attend just about every out meeting there is throughout the season apparently last week putting up a good show at all four and never hire a coach, they must be a bunch of teetotalers, or have been very naughty in a previous life, But I'm not sure if Thats a Fact
