Just got my copy. Lots of ads, but an interesting story on Ivor Wycherley (nice chap, bought my house via them), and some good photos too. A real Lewes lad - I wonder how many more could say that ? Perhaps we should get Webbo to put a poll thingy on the home page to vote for 1. Born in Lewes, 2. ditto England, Wales, Scotland and Ireland(and Eire), and 3. born elsewhere (to include ETs of course).

What about if you were born in Cuckfield or Brighton hospitals? Would the answer be 2? I think there should be a five mile radius response too.

I would have been born in Lewes but for some last minute complication that meant I first saw the light of day at Brighton General. I was back in Lewes 2 days later. Seems a bit harsh to put me down as a "2".

Was born at the Royal Sussex, super-early, so spent a month in an incubator, then back to Lewes (home, father born and bred)...am I also a '2'?

For the love of Beckham people please! It doesn't matter where you are born, only what you do with the life you are living. Get over yourselves!

Yes, it does seem a bit unfair if you had to be "carted" off to Blightown to be born, and then return to Lewes 2 days later. I think we should take Localyokel's advice and forget the whole thing ! Right, I'm starting to live now....

Yes, but if you have never done anything in your life of any significance at all what else is there but to be a chauvinist (local or national), taking credit for an accident of birth to which you contributed precisely nothing?

Clifford, You are magnificent when you are world-weary and blase and, moreover, accurate!

People don't always hang about where they were born now do they. They have a life and have to move where life takes them. You could always cling to a Lewes tree and shout "I'm from Lewes and will never even get on a bus beyond the frontiers!!"
