Today is Jimper’s Birthday

Jimper is Very Poorly

Jimper has been writing articles and stories in “Rye’s Own” since 1966. He has become Rye’s best known character, with followers all over the country and indeed, all over the World.

He has met Royalty and Politicians, been on Television on innumerable occasions, written twenty books from which the proceeds have all gone to local charities.

His efforts for the Bonfire Boys in Rye and many other Bonfire Societies around East Sussex are legendary.

He has been profoundly interested in the countryside and preservation, working for nature trusts in the area and beyond. He is an expert on bees and his book on the subject “Bees in Abundance” is very popular in America.

He is very poorly at the moment.

Please feel free to send him best Birthday  wishes and recall memories and good times you have had with him. You can post them at the bottom of this bulletin.  I know he would appreciate that.
