Thought it was a very poorly organised firesite tonight. No members' enclosure, public right amongst the rookies, poor access from the procession, etc. Shame, as the fire and aerial etc were good...

I agree with Bonfire Boye, we were all mixed together, and we seemed to all be squashed into one corner by the club house, right in front of the fireworks, which i must add, were superb.
Also, The minutes silence was superb, the entire length of the procession was silent, well done to everyone.

Do you lot ever do anything in your lives apart from bonfires and fireworks. Dont you ever get bored? All seems a bit visual, shallow, one dimesional, fractious and predictable. Pointless, childish also spring to mind. Are any of you vaguely interesting.....

I would rather go through life doing the things i enjoy doing, having a laugh, maybe some of it is a bit childish, it only lasts a few weeks, then its back to the daily routine, rather than be a moaning to**er like you, who is basicly just waiting to die.

Given that a significant proportion of the town's residents are bonfire
members, and that it is the bonfire season, it's foolish to expect there NOT to be a lot of bonfire threads atm.
Such a lot of work goes into bonfire that ardent bonfire boys are likely to be doing little else at the moment.
Learn to live with Yogi, or try not reading the bonfire related threads.

! - Your a fine one to talk about 'Glory Hunting'! Isn't that Phoenix all over? 'Fancy Dress Glory Hunters'? You don't have a procession route, or a Firesite, you don't make/bring your own torches, you tag on the back of other society's and sponge off them! And then moan that everyone is being nasty about you! You don't get respect by doing nothing- you earn it!

Dear Mr Cliffe. Any chance of some info as to what your next carnival float will be? It's seems such a shame to burn your delghtfully twee Viking Float. Still, I suppose you still have the pretty little fire engine and "Traditional" Punch N Judy stand.

Sorry Firebrigade, thats a bit heavy for me.
I am also Lewes born and bred, Perhaps i am missing something, i go out on the 5th to be with friends to get pi**ed up and throw bangers.
Only Joking, i am no bigot,
To walk on the streets on the 5th is an act of freedom, to show outsiders what we, as a town can do as one, that is done no where else in the world.
The streets are ours. The act of rememberance.
Then we get pi**ed and throw bangers.
Your turn Long John

For me the right reason for being in Bonfire is to preserve and strengthen the feeling of community that our fine town holds so dear and has in such abundance. It's also about remembrance of those fallen in the fight to maintain our right of freedom and free speech. It's also a lot of fun and a wonderful creative focus that brings so much talent together for a common cause. Lewes Bonfire is a unique event and I for one am very proud to be part of it.

All this backbiting between societies is just ugly and demeaning for Bonfire as a whole, it does us no favours at all.

I wonder how long people have been saying that for.
It's your opinion though and you're free to express it

Evelyn Beatrice Hall once said 'I disapprove of what you say, but I will defend to the death your right to say it' I don't know about the death part but I agree with the sentiment
