Appalling state of well loved garden

Overgrown Rye Garden
Overgrown Rye Garden

What has happened to Rye’s favourite quiet corner? This ancient Quaker graveyard, for some years now, a safe haven for playing toddlers, a picnic spot for lunchtime munchers, a respite for tired legs of all ages has been allowed to slip into derelict mode.

Cuts we know must happen but such abandonment bites hard into our civic pride and we wonder if this is not just another case of sheer neglect.

Yours sincerely John and Katie Gurney, Watchbell Corner, Rye.
