What would the people of Lewes (forum) say is the charitable service that is most needed in Lewes? What is the town most lacking in terms of helping those in need?

Cheaper prices in the charity shops. Some of them are charging ridiculous high prices for clothing from shops like primark, new look, and supermarkets.
Charity shops used to be a great source of cheap good quality clothes - now it's lots of overpriced tat and 'vintage' items

Robert dyas ? What is Bunces all about ? Is it a self serve shop or are the staff just indifferent ? Ask if they sell something see how helpful they aren't!

An affordable shop somewhere in the High Street. An effort made to encourage people to go down the High Street even if they aren't shopping.

Decent shops that aren't antiques shops, charity shops, coffee shops or funeral directors! That's all Lewes seems to have. Oh and no more stationery shops! Do we really need in one town two new ones virtually next door to each other ?

The newer stationery shops offer a better deal from the rip-off prices of WHS and Sussex Stationers. And as the charity shops get their stock for free and are staffed by unpaid volunteers and pay no business rates: why not haggle?

Efforts are being made to get one set up, and there's a fund-raising gig at the Con Club on 12 October to try and get it off the ground.

I thought there were already two food banks in Lewes ? Which is disgraceful whichever way you look at it. One of the richest countries in the world should not have food banks, but the present unequal system thrives on class division and inequalities.
Deelite - I would live to see more greening of Lewes. Street trees are badly needed, and lets make all the small car parks into green spaces.
And I'd like to see more spaces for youth to congregate safely

belladonna is right, there are already two food banks in Lewes: one in De Montfort and one in Landport. I think they are trying to set up a third.
