Shelfies and Rye Scallop Week

Rye Scallop Week is upon us again and promoter, Oliver Campion has come up with an amazing ‘gimmick’ to publicise this year’s event.

‘Selfies’ have been all the rage on Facebook over recent months but locally that has all changed with the introduction of ‘Shelfies’, local characters and dignitaries have rushed to get their pictures taken with suitable Scallop Shell perched on their heads to promote the Scallop Festival on FB and in as many other places as possible.

Rye’s Own featured Olly Campion with Rye Mayor Berni Fiddimore on the Front Cover of last months magazine, we don’t know why but the February issue has sold more copies than summer issues which are boosted by visitors. So to repeat the magic we have Oliver and other ‘Shelfites’ on the March cover.

The March magazine will be on sale on Friday 27 February, just at the end of Scallop Week, so to give a taste of the good things included and to publicise the Festival,  we are showing this sneak preview of the Cover to whet your appetite.
