Friends of Rye Art Gallery Summer Garden Party

A huge crowd attended FRAG’S Summer Garden Party on Saturday 10 July which was held at 11 High Street, Rye. In addition to the many local people there were visiting students and holiday makers from abroad all who enjoyed the delicious refreshments then were seen either relaxing in the nooks of the garden or were busy buying wares from the many stalls. Special thanks go to Mrs Ray Festing for offering her garden to the public; to Mrs Kate Davson who has opened her garden at 4, Mermaid Street several times this year to also raise funds for the gallery, and to the many volunteers whose hard work helped make the events such a success.p1
