Wheelers Visit Bosun’s for a Bite

It’s good to see young people starting their own businesses despite the prevailing financial problems we see around us.

One such lady is Noonie Woodhouse, who has just started out with the Bosun’s Bite Cafe’ at Rye Harbour. The Rye Wheelers ‘gentle run’ dropped in on Remembrance Sunday after a round trip from Rye to Rye Harbour via Appledore, Lydd and Camber.

The run to Rye Harbour had a reason other than tasting the excellent refreshments provided at the Bosun’s.

Report to follow next month.
