Name: Paul Duckett,
aka Incredible Dancing Man. I got christened that by Luca,
the lead singer of the band God, who saw me dancing at a disco
and recruited me to dance for the band.
Profession: I used to work for
the National Audit Office, but I have retired on medical grounds.
I suffer from epilepsy. I do a bit of voluntary work.
Are you local? I have been living
here for 22 years or so. I was living in Hassocks with my
then partner, who found Lewes in a brochure. We thought it
looked nice so decided to move here.
Best thing about Lewes? It’s
very easy to make friends. You can meet someone in a pub and
within 30 seconds it’s like you’ve known them
for years. I found that immediately I arrived here. Also there’s
plenty to do. There’s something on every night.
Worst thing about Lewes? I can’t
drive because of epilepsy, but despite that it’s the
lack of parking in the town. The current zone system is a
Favourite pub? I can’t
answer that. I’m IDM at the Lansdown, but I also dance
at the Volunteer and the John Harvey Tavern. They are great
places with lovely staff, and I have friends in every one.
What’s your poison? White
wine. An Italian Pinot Grigio if possible. And the occasional
vodka with something.
Waitrose or Tesco? Tesco is close
to where I live. It also has a café and some loos,
which makes a big difference.
