Splendid display Lewes has put on this christmas don't you think. Such a shame no one can be bothered to make Lewes Christmassy.

Maybe the money (10,000?) spent on grants to 'Transition Town' by LTC up until now would have been far better spent on transforming Lewes during the Christmas period instead.

Like it every year. Apparently there's some proxy excuse about not being able to string lights across the road. Absolute tosh. It's awful. And then the feeble attempt to create atmosphere with the chestnut sellers and rodeo (how traditional) in the Cliffe precinct on late night shopping - just woeful

Not very Christmas like, but the lack of cars is kinda nice. What is disturbing is the lack of shoppers! Is everyone on Amazon? I hope the photo was taken LAST night!

Could be that the tories have squeezed local governments to the point that they can't help the most vulnerable in society let alone fund Christmas decorations. Shame, but that's the reality. They've only just begun - in a couple of years time those shop doorways will be full of the homeless and unprofitable.

When the annual post moaning about the lights appears, I know it's nearly Christmas.

It is such a shame for the town when even villages such as Cuckfield and Lindfield have such lovely displays. Lewes would lend itself so well to being made more festive.

The above picture was obviously taken around midnight after the lights were tuned off for the night.

As he posted before the Xmas shopping that's impossible Carol! A few shopkeepers have made an effort with decorations and sparkles but there are NO Xmas street lights in Lewes.

At least 50 percent of Lewes independent shops have Christmas lights up. However, NONE of the national chain shops have made any effort. How does this sad fact impact on the many regular forum correspondents who so dislike our independents, but pine after yet more chain stores?
