Many thanks for letting off fireworks on your late return to the town.
Many happy parents I should think.

I walked past the Elly last night and there were grown men, some of them of rather mature years, throwing rookies on the floor and then giggling like school kids,
Do people really get off on this ? It's a serious question because i can understand kids doing this but not the sad, deluded (u*ts that were letting them off last night.

Why do some people appear to believe that being intoxicated, a self-imposed condition, provides mitigating circumstances for anti-social behaviour?

Or you could all grow up. Then think that 1am is a time when families are asleep and do not want to hear this racket.
You have to ask yourself where the old bill are when this anti social behaviour is happening. After all it is a criminal offence.

Ban the sale of fireworks completely and that is the problem solved. It would also mean a lot less people having to visit A&E too.

The policing in Lewes on a Friday and Saturday night is Zero, where do our local taxes go? Responce times are a joke. Very frustrating

@guy - Stop banging the same old tired drum. It's boring and an utterly ridiculous argument.

Do you actually know how many police officers work in lewes on a shift? Try 3 usually - that's to deal with prisoners, emergencies and investigation - they cover up to burgess hill, ditchling, and falmer - divide that area between 3 police and that is why u never see a policeman. So who's fault is that - not the old bill.

Isn't that the point? Loads if police pen pushers at central administration points but none out on the beat?

Regardless of the policing situation it is bloody annoying with bangers going off at all hours - I don't mind it on the 5th even a couple of days either side but it does seem to go on for too long - one went off last night scared the buggery out of me - or maybe i'm just being a wimp?

Is it illigal to throw fireworks? what are the police supposed to do aboout it? Would the suspects still be around to say "Yes officer, its a fair cop, slap the cuffs on, I confess all"

Yes it is after 11pm at night. So they are commiting a crime.

We have this same argument every year.
Stop bloody moaning about it.
You live in Lewes, you get used to it.
I was woken by the bangers last night, so bloody what, i just rolled over and went back to sleep.
Its all finished now, you wont hear any more untill new year, and then you can get your kicks and moan about it then.

I live in the very HEART of Lewes and I have just got used to the various noises: shop alarms, car alarms, people singing/throwing up at 2am, people giving eachother a lift home in a shopping trolley, skateboards etc - all after 11pm - If the street went quiet I probably would not sleep for worrying why!

The bangers seem to be more of a a concern for those with kids and pets. Is there a reason to live in the centre of town if you have kids and pets? If not, maybe the suburbs would be a better place to live?

Glad your cat pooped in your house and not in one of your poor neighbors garden. Be responsible pet owner, get a litter tray!

I quite agree. I regularly have to spend my time clearing up other peoples cat poo from my garden. At least the bangers are only for a short time every year.
