Are you pro or anti
the Phoenix development? I would be in favour of any
development that’s in keeping with the town, but more
importantly allows my young friends and my kids to be able
to afford to live in their own town, and not to have to move
out because costs are prohibitive for first time buyers.
Favourite Lewes landmark? The
whole of the town when viewed from the golf course on a summer
evening, ideally after having ripped the course apart with
a sub-70 round – but then I wake up!
How often do you go to London and Brighton?
London about three times a year to go to the theatre and for
work, Brighton a couple of times a month, for work.
How would you spend a perfect Sunday
afternoon? In the garden with a nice bottle of white
wine and a good book enjoying the road closure they’d
just enforced on the road by my garden.
What cd/record/tape is in your hifi?
Hot Piece of Grass by Hayseed Dixie. Purely as a result of
their fantastic concert at the Lewes Guitar Festival.
Lewes would be better if… They
weren’t trying to pedestrianise Cliffe High Street by
stealth. I’ve no problem with pedestrianisation but
at the moment it looks as though they’re getting Ground
Force to do it – all tubs and patios.
What Lewes really doesn’t need
is… Five-minute ‘Lewesians’ who
come into the town and try to mould it into their own way
of thinking. Anyone who moves here should sit down, relax,
and let it all flow over them.
