The Heritage Centre Anchor is quite safe
Rye Town Clerk, Richard Farhall tells us
“The timber needed to be replaced but the Environment Agency A has a policy of not using hardwood so there was a delay while a reclaimed source could be found. Then the EA’s carpenter was off. He is back now but there are certain activities he can no longer easily do – and so volunteers are helping. A soon as I have a return date I will let everyone know”.
