Memories of war-time Rye will be shared at Tilling Green

A SERIES of weekly meetings called Tea, Cakes and Memories continues at Rye’s Tilling Green Community Centre on Monday October 7.

The meeting is a chance to exchange or hear about memories of ‘Old Rye’ and World War II and make new friends.

The set of four sessions should result in a Memories book or a CD.

Michelle Playford, the new Community Learning Officer, invites you to bring along any photos, stories and artefacts you have that can be shared with others.

The event is free and refreshments will be available.

The event is part of the Women and Children in Rye Project (WACOR) associated with the restoration of the Women’s Tower at the Ypres Castle. The Women’s Tower will open to the public very soon enabling local residents and visitors to learn more about the women and children imprisoned there from 1837.

Other sessions take place on October 14 and 21.
