    Now if someone wanted to invite me to guest crew next year...:p

    My in-laws live in Kingston and my wife went to school in Lewes if that helps!

    Just found out that Southover won't be going to Fletching this weekend, so it looks like we'll be at Ewhurst & Staplecross as well. Maybe we should have a forum meeting point?
     
  3. Hi all
    Heads-up for Fletching this Saturday (25/10)
    So if you're anywhere between Haywards Heath and Crowborough, East Grinstead and Lewes come along.
    Village entertainments and processions from around 6:30pm pyromusical by Ashdown Fireworks which starts when all the procession and crowds are in the field some time between 9-9:30pm.
    I'm on crew and you'll find me during the show sat in the middle just in front of the crowd barrier on a garden chair :) as always - unless I'm on winch/tractor duty
    Feel free to give us a shout out
    Mark

    What is the event in Battle like? My brother is down in my Van in Camberley this weekend looking for an event to go to.

    Battle is usually a good night out. Gets abit crowded around the abbey green outside the abbey though. Well worth the visit. Get there early to get a good viewing position. I haven't done Battle for a couple of years so will be making the trip myself on Saturday

    A great night at Battle for a first timer! A really unique location for pyro. A huge bonfire right in front of the abbey entrance, lots of noise and a great display right over the rooftops.
    It's what Sussex bonfire does best! And a great warm up to the glorious fifth in my home town of Lewes.

    Finally sorted out my video of the fireworks from Fletching. Had to split the video into two parts as it was too long for youtube :mad: Featuring their famous flameballs.

  18. I had another trip into Sussex, this Time to Robertsbridge, as always a great Display, with some serious Pyro, and Putin Blown up. It was a shame the field was to muddy to let people on, but still had a good Viewing spot on road. Congratulations and thanks to all who made this happen.:)

    Robertsbridge is always a good night out. As per norm got a minibus over there with Fletching bonfire society. Also as per norm can't remember much about last night as too much Harvey's consumed in the local ale houses. But various bonfire peeps have assured me it was a good night
