Jempson’s superstore make-over
April 6 2017.

Work is about to start on the multi-million pound refurbishment and extension of Rye’s supermarket. In an Easter 2017 newsletter to customers, Jempson’s looks forward to completing the project in July this year, but keeping the store open throughout the construction period with the minimum disruption to customers. Internally, there will be brand new fridges, freezers and shelving throughout the store, an expansion of the existing bakery, an in-store Post Office and a complete re-orientation of the aisles for easier shopping.  Source: Jempson’s

Lottery funds help regenerate

Lottery funds help regenerate
April 13 2017.

In her newsletter this week, Rye MP Amber Rudd has revealed that her Hastings and Rye Constituency has received more than £30 million of funding from the lottery and Coastal Communities funds. The majority has gone to regeneration projects in Hastings but, in Rye, the Museum, with its two sites at East Street and Ypres Castle (both a must-visit for tourists and residents alike), has benefited from lottery largesse. Perhaps the Landgate might be a future beneficiary, writes John Minter.
