Some time after this Section 5 evolved from the primal soup which was alchemically mixed with Sussex Bonfire, beer and a "caution" under Section 5 of the Public Order Act as issued by the latest successors to the Bow Street Runners who paid a visit to Battel Bonfire in the year of our Lord 2001
Every year we now visit the good townsfolk of Old Sussex and beyond to make merry, bang drums, set off car alarms, drink a lot of ale and go home again.
We actively support local charities and good causes in both inconspicuous presence and by donating whatever we might be offered by way of payment for turning up at events and enjoying ourselves.
