Nick supports the ‘Taste of Rye’ festival

October 13, 2008

I was very pleased to have been able to attend some of the events in the ‘Taste of Rye’ festival.

My family and I particularly enjoyed the Farmers’ Market behind the Cinque Ports and the white chocolate and yoghurt cheesecake that was on offer from one of the stallholders – you know who you are!

These events need good marketing, because they are great opportunities for the local economy.

Having spoken to Sue Prochak, the Lib Dem Leader on Rother District Council, I am pleased to be able to report that local Lib Dems are in the forefront of lobbying for improved tourist information centres across the rural parts of Rother. 

These must operate in a joined-up way, and under an effective marketing strategy.  This has been sadly lacking from the Conservative-run District Council, whose sights (and money) appears fixed on the Bexhill seafront.  The decision to press ahead with refurbishment of the seafront without any meaningful consultation is truly shocking.  The Lib Dems have opposed it.

[Did you go to any ‘Taste of Rye’ events?  What did you think?]
