Community means ‘together’


Re Rye Community Charity Shop [Editor’s note : The shop’s closure was reported by Rye News last week and on September 24 when the sudden notice of closure seemed to have come as a surprise to some shop staff]

What a sad reflection of “Society” today. After what started as a “Working Partnership” becomes cut-throat business, it seems commitment and loyalty are no long applicable in our world today.

The word “Community” means working together for the well being of all concerned which I misguidedly thought we were doing. The word “Trust” is irrelevant, all that matters is “Self”.
