Jean Floyd isn’t a Ryer – but she knows it better than most. She has a detailed knowledge of the town's history and a handle on its future - as a director of the local museum and as a webmaster, too. Dee Alsey went to meet the woman who first fell in love with Rye just after marrying husband Barry in 1953
It was a night for the Beeb's glittering stars as Ryers were treated to an advance showing of the first episode of "Mapp and Lucia". The other stars were there too: prime among them our chocolate box streets and well, me, actually, writes the man loved by the director's lens, our Tony McLaughlin
Rye will host the annual classic car rally on Sunday November 16 as part of the 1950s celebration that is Rhythm Riot weekend at Camber Sands. This coincides with the opening of another new shop on the High Street when the Vintage Stockroom, selling Americana from the 1940s and 1950s, opens its doors on Saturday November 15 at 11am. So this weekend expect fabulous fenders, dapper drainpipes and a profusion of polka dots
"Come Dine With Me", the hit TV show, has a new twist: couples dishing up the dinners. And the organisers are looking for couples living in this area to take part - so, if you like turning out tasty titbits together, here's your chance for four minutes of fame
Rehearsals are in full swing for the pantomime "Old Mother Hubbard", which will be performed at Rye Community Centre in late November. With star-crossed lovers, a dastardly duke and a host of comic characters, this wittily scripted production promises an evening of laughter, banter and "he's behind you"
