Fishing boats at Rye Fishmarket and The Strand – Pictures taken in the 1960s
They came in their thousands to Rye on Saturday 9 December for the third Christmas event staged by Liz PenDennis and her fantastic committee.
For the third year the roads inside the Town were closed resulting in huge crowds safe streets for the children to roam and allow musicians and choirs to perform.
It was cold, very cold, but there were plenty of hot drinks available and even a hot toddy.
The shops were doing terrific business – It all begs the question, why allow cars into the town at any time? Nowhere to park? Well the estimated 6,000 people that visited Rye on 9 December all found a way of getting in without bringing pollution with them.

Advance warning supply disruption in Rye and surrounding areas
We’re currently working hard to fix a burst on a 14.5” pipe, which was discovered in a rural area near Brede in the early hours of this morning.
Unfortunately, in order to safely repair it as quickly as possible, we’ll need to interrupt water supplies to around 2,500 residents in the TN31 to TN36 postcode areas from 11AM today. We are working hard to fix the problem as soon as possible.
We are already working closely with the vulnerable customers who will be affected by this and we will be establishing water distribution points for other residents if it becomes necessary.
We are also sending tankers to top up the reservoir supplied by the burst pipe.
We apologies for any inconvenience and thank everyone affected for their understanding and patience whilst we carry out these emergency repairs.
