    So Lewes Town Council, not to be confused with the council we pay our rates to and whom collects all the parking profits. Has organised a skating rink in Lewes Castle for 4 days in December to coincide with the late night non shopping evening. (I say that because although there are definitely a lot of people about, they aren't actually buying, and those few that do want to spend say they'll come back another day. Voice of experience I'm afraid.).
    Hopefully, the ice rink will be open every day and evening, which should be popular. Maybe this will trigger off a host of other events for all that week. Start organising now, Christmas will soon be here. Get the Mumford crowds back !! I'm looking at Hot Chestnut stall as we speak!

    And from my experience, any group with the word 'Council' in their name couldn't organise anything well, other than their salary and their sick pay and their holiday pay.

    Great news, nice to see something at the top end of town for a change! With so many shops shutting or to let there, any thing like this can only help!

    You are right about people not buying, just wandering around. Whether it's late night or day time Lewes shops are too expensive for many people.

    Just to clarify the initial post.
    The skating rink was the idea of Cllr Amanda Dean, and she brought it to Town Council who said she would need to liaise with the Chamber of Commerce as they arrange the late night shopping evening. They would be happy to see it being done but wouldn't be able to take on all the additional time necessary to run the ice rink.
    Because the rink will be situated in the Gun Garden, it will be organised by Sussex Archological Society. But with the initial set up costs under-written by the Town Council.

    I wonder if any thought has been given to the entry fee. Since local residents will have already paid for it via the town council levy on council tax, will we get entry for no further charge?
