Town council seeking committed locals


Elections in Rye will be taking place this May.

Rye Town Council is urging enthusiastic and engaged members of the community who want to make a long-lasting change, have innovative ideas or have concerns about a specific issue to stand as councillors for the opportunity to make a real difference. 

An integral part of a councillor’s role is engaging with local people, groups, and businesses to determine their needs, making decisions on the services and projects the council should take forward, and getting involved to ensure services meet the community’s needs. 

If you’d like to find out more about joining Rye Town Council the Clerk, Richard Farhall, welcomes prospective candidates for an informal chat with him about what the role entails and the election process. Alternatively, get in touch by email to with any questions you may have.  

For those interested in standing for election, candidate information and nomination packs are now available to download from (search “current and forthcoming elections”). Delivery of nomination papers must be by hand to Bexhill Town Hall from 10am on March 27- the deadline is 4pm on Tuesday April 4.
