Bonfire Tour, Day Thirteen: Lewes, East Sussex

On the whole, a quiet day. Got caught up on chores - laundry & grocery shopping.
Interesting guests in the Rocket fm studio for Rupert's show: local activist John May, Lewes Borough Bonfire Society chairman John Winter & Martin Crease who played some traditional bonfire tracks. Phone interview with Conrad Bladey who lives in Lithicum, Maryland, USA and is a bonfire fanatic. See his blog here.
