Id like to take a moment of your time to shed light on a very important and heroic individual living among us. This individual being of course, Anna Costello. Recently Anna was thrust into a situation that not only tested her life-guarding skills, but her humanitarian skills. And at the young age of only 17 she managed to courageously save the life of another. Id like to take this opportunity to point out not all posts relating teenagers on lewes forum need to be those of a negative nature, and that not all those between the ages of 13 and 19 living in lewes are out to do wrong.
I hope Anna's actions help others to recognise teenagers, same as any other age group, have the good and bad. And should not be treated otherwise.

YoufOfLewes - you know you haven't actually told us anything, don't you? A when and a where and a what would be helpful.

Clifford, this is just one example of the posts we get where it is assumed that we know all about what is being referred to. For example, white trousers for children. The average person would have wondered "Why? So they can be seen in the dark when crossing a road?
Posters, please explain yourselves a little more clearly.

No Grandpa, the average person would have just thought someone wanted to get hold of some white trousers. There is nothing strange about that is there? They explained that they needed them for a costume for their children, and gave their ages. What else should they have explained? Their names, their address, the colour of their hair?
If I asked for suggestions where to get something, I wouldn't expect to have to explain exactly why I wanted that item.

Grandson, now you've explained white trousers can you explain what YouthofLewes is writing about?

Grandson, her initial request did not give any reason. We were all supposed to know, and several people queried it. In the end, I think the answer was to do with bonfire costumes.

It was stated in the first post that they were required for a costume Grandad. Perhaps you had better get your eyes tested. I'm sure pensioners can still get this done for free!. Still don't see why you need to know so much detail about why someone wants white trousers though. If you go into a shop and ask for a nice cardigan or some beige trousers, you wouldn't expect the shop keeper to ask you why you wanted them would you?

Did Anna Costello save someone from drowning?
Admirable indeed, if that is what happened.
