The church has organised a ‘buddy’ system which is still being used by many villagers, which is just a local support system between villagers.

If you would like to volunteer to help people who require assistance during the Covid-19 (Coronavirus) pandemic or know someone who requires assistance or may be vulnerable, please do either of the following:

1) Please contact the churchwardens Liz Turgoose (01424 882657) or Zoe Wilmoth (01797 227745) who are organising a ‘buddy’ system where volunteers can help where needed with in the village.


2) Contact the Rye Mutual Aid Group through their Facebook page.  This is a group that has been set up to help those needing assistance in the Rye and surrounding area.
