Hi there,

We are a family of 3 living in Rye, we need a 6 month let whilst we commence some building works on our house.

Happy to look at any accomodation type and wondered if anyone here can suggest anything?

A flat, static or house would be considered.

Thanks so much for your kind consideration.

Best,

Robert Sherwin:

I had a sister, Janet Mary Sherwin, who passed away aged 16 on the 26th April 1960 at Hill House Hospital. It was thought she may have been buried at a nearby church but the only one I can find is Playden Church but I have no way of verifying this. Can anyone help?
