Museum Summer Party – Friday August 4th

Rye Castle Museum held a Summer Party for members on Friday August 4th. The weather was set fair so tables and a few chairs were taken to the Ypres Tower top garden and a cheese and wine party was set up for what proved a very convivial evening. Almost 40 members attended and for a small charge enjoyed a selection of nibbles and cheeses and a glass of wine (or two). There was a raffle with a few very select prizes – a small hamper, restaurant voucher, bottle of wine and a beauty box. The evening raised much needed extra funds for the museum. Thank you to the museum ‘ Muses ladies’ for setting this up, catering and clearing up.

The museum has a full social calendar and events programme and new members are always welcome as are volunteers. The next event will be a children’s afternoon at the end of the school holidays – Friday 1st September, a dressing up afternoon. This will be followed by a coffee morning at East Street museum to launch the display of pottery ‘Medieval to Modern’ on Saturday 16th September. A grand fundraising evening in October – we are completely self-funding, and depend on visitors and events to cover our costs — and of course the new talks programme will also re commence in October.

If you are not a member and would like to know more take a look at the museum website www.ryemuseum.co.uk, call in at East Street Museum during Saturday / Sunday opening times or visit the Ypres Tower which is open every day. We are a friendly happy group and as has been proven by doctors, volunteering helps sharpen your mind – keeping you actively engaged. We look forward to seeing you at the museum be it as a visitor or volunteer – Keep History Alive!
