Why the Rye Fund


Rye is a special place. People come to live in and around Rye because they love it here. But Rye has its challenges that must be met

Award Ceremony held at Town Hall

The Rye Fund Award ceremony was held on 21 January at the Town Hall.

Although the Fund has been awarding grants for six years this was the first time everyone had been invited together to applaud the varied achievements of these hard working community groups. See a full report on Rye News.

Sea Cadets act as "Good Ambassadors" for Rye

Two cadets from Rye and District Sea Cadets will be on the other side of the world on Saturday April 25, 2015. They will be attending the remembrance ceremonies of Anzac Day, held in recognition of the soldiers of the Australian and New Zealand Army Corps (Anzacs) who lost their lives in Gallipoli during World War I. In addition to the obvious benefits to the two individuals, it is intended that they will act as "good ambassadors" for Rye and the UK.

Their trip will be partly financed by The Rye Fund in its latest distribution of grants, which were agreed last month. The cadets are just one among 10 local community groups to receive grants in this latest round of awards, which total £7,000 and are made annually
