Thanks to Rae for hard work

May I take this opportunity to say thank you to Mrs Rae Festing.

Through the Iron Gate of 11 High Street

This is where the visitors and locals meet,

For lots of charities up and down.

A lovely garden in the heart of town.

For the Rye Safari No 11 was our choice.

With The Iris Gillet Band in good voice,

While sitting with tea and cake

What a lovely sound Huey did make.

Then at 5 pm when all was done,

Our volunteers and Rae

Would have a party

To reflect on the day.

Many thanks Rae for hosting our venues for St Michael’s Hospice.

So an MBE is presented to Rae

Cheers to you hip-hip hooray.
