Due to Lewes Bonfire Night we would like to advise all our customers we will be closing early at 2pm on Saturday 5th November 2016.
East Sussex County Council Highways & Sussex Police will close the roads surrounding us by 5pm. Access & transport can be very difficult. We will re open on Monday 7th November at 9am as usual.
The below information has been issued by Lewes District Council on behalf of British Transport Police, East Sussex County Council, Lewes District Council, South East Coast Ambulance Service, Sussex Police and East Sussex Fire & Rescue Service.
No trains will stop at Lewes or several neighbouring stations after midday on Saturday 5th November – bonfire night – and road restrictions will apply.
Restricted travel arrangements have been introduced because of industrial action expected on the local rail network that day and the need to ensure safety of the travelling public and people in the town centre during the busy Lewes bonfire celebrations.
The full travel arrangements are:
•Trains will not be stopping at Lewes station or at London Road in Brighton, Moulsecoomb, Falmer and Glynde from midday on Saturday 5 November until normal services resume on Sunday 6 November.
•There are road closures around Lewes and the A26 will also be closed for the event through the Cuilfail Tunnel, between the Southerham roundabout (junction with the A27), and Earwig Corner (junction with the B2192 to Ringmer) between 5pm and 1am, in both directions as part of enhanced security measures for the event. There are no designated drop-off points.
•Alternative routes for local residents will be communicated through the Lewes Tourist Information Centre and at www.lewes.gov.uk/bonfire
•Train information is available at www.southernrailway.com

We would like to wish you all a happy and safe bonfire night.
