Right, you move to Lewes
Over night you start to complain
Outrageous - you MUST know what to expect
Killed bonfire now by the look of it, based on outmeetings this year
It looks like you've won
End of years of tradition
Sadly
Bonfire has been turned into a funeral procession rather than a vibrant celebration
Bring some excitement to the out meetings before even the torches are converted to LED tea-lights

I agree Lopster - why move to Lewes (especially town centre) if you dislike bonfire - move somewhere else instead. Lewes bonfire will never end - it is that night that matters most (everyone knows that). Make sure you let some loud ones off outside 'ban em's throughout the night !!

I would like to be there on the 5th, to soak up the atmosphere. I would like to see the procession go past outside the Brewers arms in the bottleneck, as in previous years- about 9.00
But now the Gestapo-sorry, Sussex police- say that I must be in the central zone by 5.00, and hang around. It's just not on.

Surely last year, because it was a Saturday, they were anticipating enormous crowds and planning accordingly, Jim. I'd have thought that as this year the 5th falls on a Monday the numbers will be much reduced. (I certainly hope so - last year was ridiculous)

To remove rookies from Bonfire is going to destroy the spectacle that it is. How would Sussex Police like to do their job without the ability to arrest people?
What would become of Lewes without Bonfire? It is at risk of becoming a dormitory town full of do-gooding DFL's.
This is a ridiculous state of affairs and I hope that Bonfire boys and girls will continue to have free reign of the town on this ONE night of the year.

Yeah me neither. I moved here and look forward to the bonfires. Those who don't like the traditions should move elsewhere, like, blightown, or even further afield.

The end of Lewes bonfire as we know it is not far away. The authorities are closing in year on year. They are sucking in the big chiefs of each society. Listen to them preaching how you won't be protected if you are arrested dropping fireworks etc.That's just the start. Brain washed chiefs are spelliung the end. Mark my words.
(Did you see what I did there? )

"I repeat" Surely this is the same message that has been put out year in year out regardless of what the Police say.

The crowds will be a lot thinner this year as it's on a Monday and the procession will be a lot quieter too. Not because of anything the police have said but because there's not yet a suitable supplier of bangers without concrete plugs. You can get them but not nearly as easily as people used to be able to get hold of the blue and red rookies.

Much as I love Bonfire, I honestly hope it pours with rain this year, thinning the crowd out even more so that next year we can do it better and louder than ever.

If, 'I repeat', the opposition to bonfire is limited to anonymous trolling on local message boards, I don't think we've got a great deal to worry about.

I've lived in Lewes for 8 years now and I love the 5th. Can anyone explain how these bangers are made. Why do they have a concrete plug? So that they make a louder bang? Sorry if I sound naive,but although I've heard plenty of loud bangers I've never actually seen one and would love to know what they're made from and how they're made.
