I had heard that there is going to be a re-generation of the town centre.

Yes, there have been plans knocking about to redevelop The Martletts Shopping Centre in Burgess Hill for several years. As it stands retailing will take a back seat with plans to build a multiplex cinema, bowling alley and hotel. Apparently only Nandos and someone like Next expressed any serious interest at the prospect of moving into Burgess Hill.

I actually have a soft spot for Burgess Hill and find it a friendly place, and, despite the Amex rabble only being 10 miles down the road, there are a fair few Palace supporters in the area.

Part Time James, for one, although he doesn’t grace us with his presence on here anymore.

Ah but he does. It was he who first mentioned Burgess Hill way back on Page 4 and who galavanised Willo into responding, and, in turn, my good self.

I lived in Hove for thirty years. Like everywhere it has it's bad bits and share of vagrants but overall it's a nice place and certainly a cut above Brighton.

What always baffled me was the clientele in some of the pubs in pretty affluent areas. The Hove Park Tavern ( down the road from the old Gallstone Ground ) being a prime example. No idea where these people come from.

I was once threatened in there by a guy as I lightly brushed by him at the bar, which given that I'd just had a foot operation and was on crutches, I thought was a bit much !

Probably a poltroon trying to give the impression that he was as tough as gun metal.Some intestinal fortitude picking on a chap with crutches !

Next time come to the Neptune on Kingsway, a quite excellent pub.

I go there a fair bit on Friday's depending on which band is on !

Until 2 years ago I lived just along the road at Flag Court.

Is that your regular haunt then ?

He got fed up with the bickering. He might be back at some stage.

 


I used to put the manager's name in front of Red and Blue but got fed up with changing it. If someone cool becomes our manager then maybe..

Red and Blue Army!

sounds like Streatham 30+ years ago, quite a genteel place apart from the pub clientele which was pure Mitcham, now there's a candidate although it's quite nice around the Common and the Cricketers' pub
