Thank you for putting barriers across our only floodlit training pitch and half our carpark last night, on the busiest training night for all age groups within the club. These are areas you are not renting off Lewes District Council and even if you were, we fail to see why you need to put up crowd barriers on our pitch two days before Bonfire.
We hope you enjoy your evening but contrary what you have written in Viva Lewes, the rental of the ground is on a year by year basis just like your previous site. So perhaps you should consider doing what all the other societies do every year and leave your fire site in the state that it was given to you.

Umm...what has putting up the barriers two days BEFORE Bonfire got to do with leaving the fire site as it is found?

Presumably there was some kind of site plan agreed in advance. Was it followed or not?

who gives permission to Southover Bonfire to use Stanley Turner ground for their firesite and firework display. Is it the Council ?

They really are twats. Terrible sense of entitlement. Last year I heard several of them whinging about being at the back of the united grand procession. Probably best place for them given their propensity to get lost or lose a firesite..

There is no United Grand it is just the Grand. Mind you they must have their work cut out now the Knowalls have been amongst them for a while now. I somehow feel for them ...

Hold on - how have the rugby club got all this land - the south over lot haven't gone anywhere near the rugby pitches it's all the other land. I thought this land was left for general public leisure use not exclusively for rugby - not the most inclusive activity I would have thought. How much land do the rugby people actually want - the field with the pitches on is massive - should they have all this other land as well.

Who owns all this land and why does the rugby club have use of so much of it? Surely the 3G is better to train on in muddy conditions anyway. I thought It was left under a special deed for a range of activities.

Those are Not public barriers for the display, they are safety barriers to keep you all safe in the event of an accident. All part of risk assessments carried out by all societies when needed. I'm sure you'll agree that the safety of your friends and children is of paramount importance rather than an evenings inconvenience?
All notification has been in place for a week, (as is the official council process) If you can't be bothered to read them, or have trouble understanding them, maybe you should be talking to your teams officials that have been invited to all previous official meetings, yet have declined to attend, or even respond?

it is not one evening's inconvenience , it is inconvenience for a week . I was given to understand it was a Sports Ground , designed for various Sports, Rugby and Football in the winter, Cricket in the summer, running, dog walking, etc. not designed for a Bonfire site or pyrotechnic fireworks.or maybe that comes under leisure for the general public.?

That and men with odd-shaped balls.

How considerate of you.

thank you for congratulating Southover bonfire society on their excellent planning and cooperation-perhaps the next time this happens your club might like to turn up to the pre-arranged meeting with said society and council rather than winge on here.
