Rye’s new Information Point in the Town Hall in Market Street (at the top of the town) opened for business on Tuesday morning, and it soon had plenty of visitors seeking information. Up to date, live information on places to go, which were open and running, was very welcome.
The photo above (as it opened for its first day of business) shows Town Clerk Richard Farhall in the middle, Deputy Clerk Jessica Neame on the left, and Gail Dodson (right) who will deal with enquiries at the Information Point, along with colleague Kate Smith (not shown).
The info-point will be open Tuesdays to Saturdays from 10.00am until 4.00pm, with a half hour lunch break at 1.00pm, and it is stocked with (in no particular order) postcards, ice creams, gifts, mementos, maps, plans for walks and trails, books by local authors, and general books about Rye – and people you can ask.
And, as government rules change, up to date information is very important and, though there were lots of leaflets and booklets about where you might go, they were printed before the virus kicked in – and current information is vital.
However, social distancing rules OK, and it is a small office, so you may have to wait your turn outside (or possibly in the Town Hall porch if it is pouring down) – but you have to at Boots as well, and that High Street queue can be quite long sometimes.
