Informal meeting of the Planning and Townscape Committee
On Friday 12 November, Rye Town Council met at the Rye Community Centre to pay tribute to some special members of the Community.
Carl Bagwell was voted in as an Honorary Freeman of the Town of Rye, having been nominated by Deputy Mayor, Councillor Andi Rivett. Councillor Rivett paid tribute to Mr Bagwell’s longstanding commitment to the Port of Rye, during his tenure as Harbour Master; and his voluntary contributions to a wide array of organisations in and around the town.
In October 2020, Christine Emson was also made an Honorary Freeman of the town. Due to covid restrictions the meeting was held virtually, meaning there was a delay in presenting her scroll. Christine was finally able to be honoured in front of the Council and members of the community she has served.
Finally, a special Certificate of Thanks was presented, by the Mayor, to a small group of volunteers and co-ordinators representing all those assisting at the Vaccination Centre in Rye. The volunteers, numbering around 50 in total, were recognised for their commitment and hard work in contributing to the valuable provision of a vaccine centre for the town.
Now open – Monday to Thursday: 10am – 1pm Friday to Sunday: 10am – 4pm (closed from 1-1.30pm)
