Dear Sir

The loss of Johnson’s greengrocers from the High Street is going to be keenly felt. It was a good shop with friendly staff, selling a lot of local, high quality produce. It will be added to the list of “dearly departed” along with the bakery and Ashbees.

Is there anything left being sold in the street that a local shopper might actually need? Or is the High Street now solely there to serve well-heeled tourists in search of expensive novelties?

Whatever the reason, the decline of the street is socially significant and makes Rye a less attractive place to live in.

    Regarding Rye High St: for an interesting article, why not print a list of shops operating in the 1950s or even 1960s. I think it would amaze many readers.
