Simply Divas a success

The Salts to be greener sooner

The Salts to be greener sooner
November 28 2016.

Following the intense heat generated by the Rye Bonfire on November 12, the patch of burnt earth might have scarred the Salts for the next six months as in previous years, writes Kenneth Bird. However, this year the bonfire society has already been able to re-seed the area, thanks to the mild November weather, and we should see green blades of grass shooting early in the Spring.

Restaurant closes

Restaurant closes
November 25 2016.

Customers booked in at the Ambrette restaurant in the High Street, the other day, were surprised to find that, on arrival, the doors were firmly locked and no sign of life was to be seen within, writes John Minter. No explanation has been forthcoming so far from the owner, Dev Biswal, but as a recent mailing received from him mentioned his other two restaurants in Margate and Canterbury, but conspicuously omitted Rye, it must be assumed that, while hoping to the contrary, this popular and classy venue is now closed for good.

Zumba for Children in Need

Zumba for Children in Need
November 24 2016.

Raising money for Children in Need, a group of ladies did an hour of Zumba in pyjamas at Peasmarsh Memorial Hall last Thursday evening, November 18. Zumba involves dance and aerobic movements performed to energetic music, writes Ray Prewer Two of the ladies, Sue Kelleher and Sarah Tiltman, work in Johnson’s Fruiterers Greengrocers in the High Street. I caught up with them the following day. They had bought Pudsey onesies for the Zumba hour and were wearing them at work. So far they have raised over £400, but the group figure will not be available for a week or so.
I am sure if you dropped into Johnson’s you could still make a donation to Children in Need.
