Sadly, it will mean that many of our members and our fans won't be able to get into Lewes.
This'll no doubt affect our bottom line.
Still, we will hopefully make up any shortfall by selling more copies of our Guide to Lewes Bonfire.

In excess of 32,000 people would be expected to visit lewes by train on the 5th, this is a usefull revenue to the railways well in excess of £165,000, It is the public who place money in the collection boxes, 100% of which goes to charities mainly with local connection, many Bonfire society members also use public transport. currently the road closure plans do not include providing drop off points and parking as we know is difficult at any time in Lewes. there is no doubt that the strike action will be noticed in Lewes, and not in a positive light.

Current plans by Southern Rail are to ensure that no trains stop at Moulsecoomb, Falmer, Lewes or Glynde on the afternoon and evening of the fifth of November - even if a limited train service is running, using staff who are ignoring the RMT strike call.

Of course it is because people dont have feet do they. Trains are clearly the only form of public transport that exists

I fully support the RMT. It's the govt that are undoubtably pulling the strings in this struggle. I am sorry though for all the bonfire families forced to live in cheaper areas because of the changed demographic of Lewes - it will make it harder for them to enjoy their traditional night that has unfortunately become so trendy.

It was much quieter last year due to the bad weather. I was dreading the crowds this year - hopefully this will take the pressure off.
