Rye Library: temporary closure 17 January to 24 January. It will reopen on Friday 25 January at 10am. During this time, Sussex Film Office will be using Rye Library as a location for the filming of a historical television drama, produced by Left Bank Pictures. They understand that the closure of the library may cause some temporary inconvenience to customers, for which they apologise. However, they believe that allowing Rye Library to be used for the filming means we can play a role in supporting the economic benefits that are likely to result from Rye being used as a location. Loans of all items borrowed from the library will be extended for this period, so you won’t need to return an item while the library is temporarily closed. You can renew your library books, search and reserve items and download eBooks and eMagazines from their eLibrary and you can use your library card at any East Sussex library. You can also renew items using their 24/7 automated renewal line on 0345 6080 195. Please have your library membership number (on your library card) and your PIN to hand. The nearest East Sussex libraries are in Hastings and Hollington. There is full information about these libraries on their website. If you wish to visit to use the public computers and would like to book first you can call 0345 60 80 196 or speak to staff in the library. If you have any questions please feel free to contact them.

Brede Players: well didn’t they do well. Oh yes they did! I am sure that the Friday night and Saturday afternoon audience enjoyed their performance of Alice in Wonderland as much as the Saturday evening audience, who were in fine voice when answering back Cookie, and booing and hissing at the baddies. The mostly young performers did extremely well and there was many a proud mum, dad, grandparent, aunt and uncle in the audience. The scenery was clever in as much that it did not need much changing throughout the scenes and the lighting was also effective. Everyone involved in the production did extremely well. If you missed it, you missed a fantastic evening out however, we will all look forward to next year’s Pantomime.
