Another Great Ryer Has Gone

Last remaining Alderman from Rye Borough Days

Peter Dee

It is with great sadness we report the death of Rye’s last remaining Aldermen from the Borough Council Days.

Peter Dee was as well known in Rye as the Landgate Tower. An ever present in theparade at the Mayoring Day event and a popular member of Rye’s community. He worked at Dean’s Rag Book Company in Tower Street and at  Pontin’s Holiday Camp, Camber.

Peter would have been 90 on 11 February

A full report on this remarkable man, who became Rye’s Youngest ever Councillor way back in 1954, will be included in the March issue of “Rye’s Own”.
