Without active assistance, Landgate faces an uncertain future. Rother can contribute only a negligible budget so other ways must be found to preserve it. We need the help of those - not just locally but globally - who treasure this unique building. What we need, the mayor says, is Friends of the Landgate!
Police patrols issuing 80 parking tickets are a direct result of the intervention of MP Amber Rudd, who acted after residents raised concerns over illegally parked cars and fire appliances being blocked en route to an incident. A traffic warden is seen as the best solution to this increasing problem in Rye's narrow streets and funding is actively being sought
A local charity that welcomes children from Chernobyl on holidays to the UK was visited last week by the director of the principal rehabilitation centre at Korosten in Russia to discuss different ways in which it can continue to help those still affected by the threat of radiation almost 30 years after the disaster
Rye Rotary Club welcomed back speaker Chris Longfield to talk about how the local Air Ambulance Service has expanded into flying by night as well as by day. As one of its designated charities, the service will be receiving a donation from the club towards its inevitable increased costs
At a recent Rye council meeting Nick Taylor observed much confusion about the proposed electrification and upgrading of the Marshlink railway line. So he set out to sort fact from fiction. Will Southeastern trains' domestic highspeed service really be coming to Rye, Hastings and Bexhill?
A team of scientists is spending two weeks mapping and sampling Pett Level's submerged forest as part of a project to reconstruct the forest and the local environment some 10,000 years ago. They are calling on local volunteers to put on their wellies and come down to the beach to help. Over the weekend, they invited local residents to visit them at drop-in sessions in Winchelsea to learn more.
Action time for our local MP over the supermarket that may never open; the High Speed train that may not stop; and buses routes still under threat - and she is looking for your views. Meanwhile the 340/341 and 344 buses may be 'saved', but who will save local schools that need space to expand when that space is now 'up for grabs'. Charlie Harkness reports as winter sets in.
The fence is broken, the Ferry Road site overgrown. But the four year stalemate over a supermarket for Rye is over. Both Sainsbury's and Tesco are walking away after locking horns since 2010, another retailer may be unlikely, and nearby schools need more space. But who will buy the site? And will Rye benefit - Charlie Harkness reports.
