RYE and District Lions were delighted with their big annual charity fair on Rye Salts,

The Fair follows the popular Raft Race and attracted hundreds of people who enjoyed taking part in a variety of games and side-shows.

The event, which raises funds for local charities and good causes, also included a bar and live music.

Conrad Freezer, from Rye Lions, said: “The Lions wish to express their thanks to the people of Rye and others attending who gave such superb support on the day, the raft crews, the shops that provided prizes for their stalls, the Rye Harbour Master, James Bateman and his crew, Rye Harbour Marine for providing the rescue boats, St Johns Ambulance, the stall holders, Richie McGowan and his fellow musicians who entertained the public all afternoon.

“Thanks are also due to Jempsons Haulage for the loan of their trailer for the bands and all the Lions, their families and the Friends of Rye Lions for all their hard work on the day.”
