I don't flippin' believe it!

Since we've been gradually raped of our sweetshop and the demise of Woolies there is now nowhere in Cliffe to buy a Mars bar!

La Magazin ou est le confiserie?

A business opportunity perhaps.

It's in what was the old borough of Lewes. Cliffe starts the other side of the river.

Time to drop a few pounds then. Smiler.
On the subject of FAs complete ignorance of Lewes, I'm constantly amazed at the amount of people that think the precinct is part of the Cliffe. And most of them are members of the bonfire club!

Tooth Fairy, since we are being pedantic, I am surprised at the number of people who refer to a bonfire society as a club.

To keep this post on track... I'm surprised that Mars Bars come indifferent sizes. Some are called fun size but I believe that are ALL fun size

Surely the chippy sells Mars bars, and possible the Dorset and other pubs. The Golf club - it's on the cliff. Could Tesco be classed as 'The Cliffe' - it's that side of the river!

'the chippy sells Mars bars' - Now, that really shows that Lewes is going down the drain (or up, depending on the tide). I'm deeply disturbed by a so called 'newsagent' in Cliffe and I don't even live there. A tiny shabby magazine rack (the only thing which reminds remotely of a newsagent; still I think we should call in the ASA, Consumer Direct and Trading Standards as 'Newsagent' is an outlandish claim). A fireplace - uncommon but fair enough we are tolerant. But what the heck is it with all those people sitting around the table? Looks to me like an AA meeting. That perhaps explains why they don't sell alcohol? What's their reason for banning Mars bars I wonder? It can't be health concerns as I saw once packs of cigarettes on display in their shop window. Great job guys! Very encouraging for youngsters. FFS, can't we have 'a normal' shop? I mean not a high street chain type but a >NORMAL< shop (like Martin's near me) without going into extremes? Offering Mars bars instead of balls of wool? I hope they all go bust in the credit crunch because only then they will realise that you can't eat overpriced wool, wooden toys or antiques for that matter. The one who got the Mars bar will have the last laugh.
