    The volunteers undertake this task diligently and must be acknowledge for their tremendous contribution to our local community. Rye and District Street pastors serve our community for users of the night time economy on alternate Fridays in Camber and alternate Saturday in Winchelsea, Rye Harbour and Rye.
