Bonfire season is well under way here in East Sussex, with less than a week til the 5th road closure signs are already appearing on the A26. I would urge people to stay away, watch the fireworks from anywhere but Lewes. It’s manic, dangerous, a no go zone for small children and people of a nervous disposition. Dogs & cats should be safely tucked up in the broom cupboard. Ear plugs are manditory as are woolly jumpers, hats & gloves. The trains are going to be like sardine tins with last trains leaving Lewes between midnight & 12.30am. If you park in Lewes make sure you leave by about 4.30 or else you may be stranded with all the road closures & restrictions, some of which are in place from 2pm this year. A handy leaflet is available from tourist info and other localities. The celebrations will be in Newick on 30th October.
