Tired old societies

Cliffe no longer look that bonfire force of old. No fire in their belly anymore.
South Street have come out of there shell and look like they want to do this. Quite impressed with them this year. One to watch.
Waterloo looked dead in the water. Dull. Membership seems to be dwindling to non existence.
Southover were nowhere to be seen so cannot comment. Shame.
Commercial won the night. Great presence. Plenty of fire in the belly. They take the crown for me.
Borough usual bloated self importance. Again dull.
Seems to me the oldest societies need a long hard look at themselves. They seem somewhat stifled by the presence of the authorities.

Awful lot of snobbery within The Cliffe Society. A member once exclaimed that the working class never put their hands in their pockets for charity. That was it for me.

Southover were great - for some reason they were forced to wait outside town as the other societies marched past...

Those who waited until Southover were allowed to process got a rare treat. Seems to have been a highlight for many.

That's an odd attitude to have Jude. One person out of what must be a thousand plus members said something and suddenly it's the opinion of the whole society! All the societies are a mix of all sorts of people, and no doubt each society has it's own share of idiots.
Meanwhile, isn't it funny, if not sad, how Southover members feel the need to hijack every Bonfire thread to tell us how great they are, eh Charlie.

No where was this more evident than on badge night when Cliffe banged out the Dorset, creating a constant wall of noise out side whilst inside raised the roof with their fine array of Bonfire songs.
Commercial on the other hand choose to spend their badge night watching a carnival band in the town hall.
It was so quite in the Elly the landlord came down the Dorset,

If the so called mighty cliffe badge night was so good...why was there cliffe members at the town hall watching the concert, and several members gatecrashed. Then at the elly after the concert. Perhaps there lewes guide misguided them.!

Both badge nights were good. The Elly was more fun.

The visit to Lewes of a fine band from Waldshut is an honour that the whole of the town should participate in. It's part of the longstanding twinning arrangement. The fact that the Commercial Square Bonfire Society host the visit doesn't make a Town Hall concert something that isn't intended to be attended by members of other bonfire societies or folk who are members of none. They are a very fine oompah band.

South Street is full of Cliffe has-beens and the poncey costumes in their ranks makes them look very carnival. Certainly NOT one to watch.

So are you saying that waldshut is rwinned with the whole of lewes not just commercial square carnival society

South Street were established as children's society. That's still a major part of what they do and they do it exceptionally well.

Zero wrong with the kids, but the society has become a magnet for wannabes and their costumes are reminiscent of carnivals.

Think the point was from the cliffe that our Badge Night was quiet , because of the concert , but was enjoyed by so many from other societies but mostly cliffe members particularly the ones that came through the back door and didn't buy a ticket , they same ones that built an enemy of bonfire head in CSBS and Waterloo colours . If you think we are , then you need to look elsewhere ,

Here we go, the children of CSBS taking cheap shots at the Cliffe again. Get a life! You do the society's reputation no good at all.

So Cliffe can create an enemy of bonfire out of CSBS and Waterloo but they in turn can't burn a few programmes of the cliffe.
It was a brilliant reply !
Don't worry we will all be back to normal soon....... after Battle!!!!
