Name: Johnny Denis
Profession: Public Health Manager in the regional Public Health Team.
Local lad? Migrated to the South Coast in 1978 from Cardiff. Hung my hat in Lewes 1978 after my parents left home.
Best thing about Lewes? Active and involved community
Worst thing about Lewes? Traffic, pressures on house prices/rents,
Favourite pub? Not anymore.
What’s your poison? Oh thanks. Mine’s a pint of lime and soda. Can I have some ice in that?
Waitrose or Tesco? Just Trade food co-op for groceries & sundries (http://www.justtrade.org/), Ashurst Organics - weekly local organic seasonal veggie box from Plumpton (Peter or Colette on 01273 891219), Lewes Farmers Market (Common Cause 01273 470900). Frank Richards in Western Road (best butcher in town). When it comes to supermarkets, Waitrose preferred on the grounds that it’s my corner shop, sells better food, and staff benefit from being Associates.
What do you think about traffic wardens? I really liked the ones I caught dancing in the precinct a couple of months back. Very entertaining! I’ve recorded a bit on my phone for posterity in case anyone needs cheering up.
Which Bonfire Society do you go to? We watch processions in the High St and then home to let them file past the front door then we can see Cliffe out the back.
