approval at Rye’s businesses’ organising more events than ever before during Wild Boar Week.

There are also plenty of things for the kids to do as it’s their half term. Throughout the week they will be able to follow the “Wild Boar Hog Hunt”, finding wild boar in the shop windows around Rye. Forms can be found online or upstairs in the toy department of Adams of Rye and completed forms can be exchanged for a chocolate bar. There are also woodland, beach and nature reserve walks organised by the Sussex Wildlife Trust.
