Ryecast: Noel Varley


“Have you talked to Noel Varley?”

Most weeks someone will say that to me when I’ve been looking for people to talk to for Ryecast. He’s the subject of this edition of Rye’s podcast with stories of growing up in wartime Rye, adventures in far off places and his thoughts on life in our town today. He’s a well known face and voice around Rye, a member of the Rotary and a local boatbuilder for many years. But, and you may need to sit down at this point, he’s actually a Yorkshireman…

You can hear this edition of Ryecast here. Search for Ryecast wherever you get your podcasts or visit www.ryecast.org.

There’s more from Noel at a special event at Rye Community Centre in March. It’s been organised by the Rotary Club of Rye & Winchelsea in aid of Rye Heritage Centre between 10am and 2pm on Saturday, March 30. You’ll be able to talk to Noel, and see some of his vast collection of photographs. It’s £5 entry to include tea, coffee and cake.

If you have a suggestion about who Ryecast should feature, email ryecastsussex@gmail.com.
