Apparently they are all returning to their societies for The 5th. Only because no-one will let them march with them.

Ban all societies especially Cliffe, then introduce some real entertainment like Ballet and Ballroom dancing. Lets get some atmosphere into this God forsaken little town.

They can't even think of an original name. Phoenix implies that it has risen from tha ashes of The Borough, though the Borough is still very much alive and well. Still it's better than 'new borough' which was their first idea.

How can the Phoenix call themselves a bonfire society when they don't want to do any fund-raising events, don't want s fire site, no one can wear stripy jumpers, they only want to march at all the out meetings in their zulu, Tudor and fantasy pirates?! Plus Jack Sparrow. And one of them said they are not doing this to p!ss anybody off....hmmm

You are either bonfire or not and they are not! I can't see the point of just going along to join other peoples processions just to wear pretty costumes. Don't get me wrong we all love going to outmeetings in our societies costumes and stripes proud of who we are and not affraid to show it, but more than anything we love to put on our own night to keep bonfire traditions alive. All the work running upto the day fundraising and preparation and on the night being proud of what we have acheived through our hard work. Pheonix seem to not want to put in any work and take the glory.

And they thought just because they have good costumes all the societies would be begging them to join them, but not the case, they'll end up walking with a small society outside of lewes that are desperate for more people to walk with them to make numbers up.

If Phoenix think their costumes to be superior to the smugglers outfit then their incorrect. The smugglers guernsey was THE original post 1853 bonfire costume. All the Fancy costumes developed much later!

Congratulations to the Phoenix you have certainly risen from the ashes. We are all behind you. From what I read here looks like there are some jealous societies xx
