Dear All
It is with a sense of joy and wonderment that i can announce that as of today i am fortunate enough to no longer be a resident of Lewes. I am joining Phil and the rest of the exiles in pastures new (although fortunately not in Seaford)
I am leaving my shack on the Landport, which I sold for a ridiculous amount of money, and going to a place where I can park, where the shops are small and local and where I do not have to dodge the debris from parking machines or lock my pets away from september to February.
Cheerio guys it's been a blast (literally)
Mick of POLEGATE!!!

Didnt agree with a word he said, especially over bonfire!
I hope he continues to post and wish him well!
It would be a dull world if everybody agreed with each other on everything!

Well I tend to disagree. Given the chance I would come back to Lewes in a heart beat. Newcastle does not compare. Not in the slightest.
And to chose Polegate over Lewes? WTF is wrong with you??

A warm welcome goes out to Mick... another refugee escaping persecution from those Ol' Lewes ills.
Be assured, If you've sold up in Landport you can buy most of Polegate.
- I like the sound of the word.
It means people can live free, talk free, go or come, buy or sell, be drunk or sober, however they choose.
Some words give you a feeling...
ps. Mick... Don't tell them other areas apart from Lewes can be nice... we don't want too many moving out.

Poor Mick probably thinks he got real bargain for his dosh, he clearly aint noticed how grubby those little local shops are! Wonder what spiel the estate agent gave him ha!ha! Plenty of parking...thats coz no-one stops there the whole place is a dump!!

I'm amazed he sold his shack in Landport.No one with any sense would pay to live there.
Well done Mick for finding an idiot to buy your old shack.

True but the idea is to improve your lot, you know...step UP the property ladder not DOWN. No point or gain if the Guy Mick bought off is laughing too & saying the same thing about him. Guarantee he is coz even Landport is better than anywhere in Polegate!!

Presumably, the Landport property is ex-council stock?
Mick, 'fess up - did you, as a tenant, buy it from the council or from a private seller?
On 29 Jan 2007 at 1:00am MADGE wrote:
Either way was mistake..as tenant should have got move before buying...face it he must have liked area to buy! Now he likes POLEGATE...

There is nothing wrong with Landport. Yes, there are problem families living there, but then you can have problem families anywhere-even Nevil. The houses are well built and when we lived there our neighbours were great. Come on then, lets have the comments about leaving.

I left Landport several years ago and I have never looked back - Now live abroad where the air is clean and the roads are clear and it is a half a mile to my nearest neighbour. BLISS!

It's tyranny whatever why you look at it. What we need is common sense. more
Those who expect to reap the blessings of freedom must, like men, undergo the fatigue of supporting it.
