Thank you for the music coup Lewes

On the day after Mumford & Sons have received two Grammy Awards, one for best album of the year, I want to express my and I am sure many other Lewesians thanks to Jenny Rowlands and her team at Lewes District Council for pulling off what promises to be one of the most exciting events Lewes has ever had. It was great to read in last week’s Express that Mumford & Sons reached their decision to hold their only UK gig in Lewes, not only because this is an amazing, unique and spirited town, but also because the council were able to respond to the proposal quickly and with a can do attitude. As a life long resident of the town I am delighted to know that we have the leadership we need to make sure we can make the best of this and other such opportunities in the future.
