There are still places left on the coach to Ewehurst and Staplecross on Saturday 31st October. This has become a special favourite of Southover, a small, traditional village bonfire. Very atmospheric. It is your last chance to test out your costumes before The Fifth or a great chance to meet other members and pick up some tips before the big night.
We will be meeting at The Swan at 4.45, leaving at 5.15. Email firstname.lastname@example.org or text 07904 439133 to book. £10 return. By attending an outmeeting you agree to abide by the rules of SBS and of the host society. Continue reading “Ewehurst and Staplecross”
We’ve added some more pictures to the Photo gallery, more lovely stuff from Nigel Powell, this time featuring Nevill. Buy some high-quality prints and help raise funds for the society. As before the gallery is password-protected, you can find the password in October’s Advance or on the SBS Facebook page.
We will be attending both Nevill and Seaford outmeeting this Saturday 17th October.
Nevill will be co-ordinated by Robert Phillips: meet at the Pelham Arms @ 4:00 or St Marys Social Centre, Christie Road (different to last year) at 4.50.
For Seaford meet from 5 at The Kings Head, getting the 5.58 train, or meet at The White Lion for 7.
There are strictly no drop-downs/fireworks/flares in the processions. No buggies. No unaccompanied under 16’s. Both are great family outmeetings.
Text Becky on 07904 439133 or email email@example.com with any questions.
Here are some more fine photos from the 2015 Eastbourne Outmeeting, this time taken by Nigel Powell. More of Nigel’s pictures can be seen on our Facebook page.
Many thanks to our friends at Eastbourne Bonfire Society for hosting us last night, a fantastic time was had by all on a glorious evening in Sussex by the Sea. Well done to all who represented the society and thanks as always to Becky and Ollie for organising us all.
More photographs from the night will follow soon, for the time being here are a few offerings from SBS photographer Hugh Wilton.
Next Saturday 3rd October we are marching at Eastbourne. This meeting gets better and better each year and is a shortish, flat march to a bonfire on the beach with fireworks and a bar. Very family friendly.
We will be meeting at The Kings Head from 5, getting the 5.53 train. Forming up at The Crown and Anchor 7 for 7.30 start. As with all outmeetings children under the age of 16 must be accompanied by an adult. Any questions or to book on the coaches for other outmeetings message firstname.lastname@example.org
Good news – outmeeting season is almost upon us!

Whether you’re a seasoned campaigner or have yet to march with the society at one of Sussex’s various excellent bonfire celebrations be sure to put some (or all) of these dates into your diary. Book early to avoid disappointment!
