Why don't you move away then? I'm sure you'll benefit from a smaller mortgage if you sell up and move to a lower grade area. If you're renting, then a swap would be a good idea. There's plenty of tenants queing to get into Lewes. It sounds like you're a lost soul so change your lifestyle. Alternatively, you could be thankful you have the opportunity to be part of the community which cares about this town, instead of slagging it off. Maybe even make some new friends......on this forum perhaps. Or are we really too stuck up for you?

Oh come on...if you don't know that this is a nice place to live/bring up kids etc, then you're blind. And yes, I bet there are hundreds of council who would love to do a swap to come to Lewes.
Also, I think you will find that alot of these 'Lewes people' who think their sh*t don't stink, originally came down from London and the suburbs.

Whilst walking down the high street sunday morning, i was faced by this family. They were all dressed with large over coats, huge Dr. Who type scarves and the bloke was wearing a cloth beret.
The kids were running amok...bumping into people and just being an absolute pain....although the parents thought it highly amusing.
That was until one of the delightful little sh*ts decided it would be great fun to wind up a dog (on a lead) and the dog snapped. The parents, in a very soft and calm voice then said "oh Tarquin, Esmerelda please be sweeties and walk nicely"
And that, i thought, just about summed up what Lewes is about

I agree with you there...
When I was a kid growing up in Lewes, that sort of wet parenting was rare. Those parents must be inconsiderate to let their kids behave that way.
It seems that when people come on to this forum and say about us Lewes people being stuck up, they must think we are all like those middle to upper class snobs who can afford to support their local high street shop and buy Fair Trade stuff. If I did that, then I would have no money left to buy xmas presents for my kids etc.
I'm not a snob and my kids are balanced and disciplined.

Spot on Lewesianne....you only have to have a walk up the high street to see what kind of people Lewes tries to attract.

I was just going to put that in my last post (in the parking thread) but thought I might sound contradictive, seeing as I harp on about how great Lewes is! :-) Yes, the shops are expensive and pointless and I go to another town if I want to walk up and down a high street! I do like the Cliffe though, I like all the chainstores, Superdrug, boots, woollies etc. I know my money goes further.

I know I go on a bit but I feel it's important to get accross to those who think we're all snobby, that we're actually not. If we were all snobs with our heads up our a***s, surely we would be polishing our silver or reading our Cosmapolitan magazines, instead of talking to decent folk on here!

I'll be back for a while at Easter. You'll spot my Lewes born attitude. I'll be wearing my levis, shopping in Timothy Whites, buying my milk in safeways, and sitting in the pictures with my Kia Ora. My teenagers wil be the ones holding the doors open for the wrinklies with their laid-back attitudes and smiles on their faces. I'll be smiling too cos I'm back home for a while in lovely Lewes.

It is amazing how this forum is cyclical - every now and then, some comments are enthusiastically posted by persons incapable of sophisticated humour, but then (thankfully) they realise they are out of their depth and disappear back to their primeval soup.

I am very proud of being a snob. Next you are going to say that you are actually proud of being down to earth? In my experience it is generally the down to earth people that aspire up the social ladder (social climbers) and get very irritated and jelous by people that are better than them. Being down to earth is an inadequacy that life has dealt you.
