If we are not to lose them, we all need to support our local independent shops and restaurants. Thankfully work has now started at The George hotel, but it is going to take time to get back to how things were.
During that period, local businesses will rely more on local customers. Whether you have bought things locally or not in the past, please do so now. In particular navigate obstructions near The George in the High Street and Lion Street to get to the shops.
There are fabulous shops locally, with quality products and you will get personal service from people who will help you find what is right for you.
Buy locally with pride and help to keep Rye as the special place that it is.
