Wild Boar Week Hog Hunt
With Wild Boar week coinciding with Half Term, over 100 shops in Rye will celebrate Wild Boar Week by displaying a ‘card-Boar-d’ wild boar in their window. Each boar is named. If you can find twenty wild boars and fill in the shop name and the boar’s name on a form – which will be available from the Rye Tourist Information Centre in Lion Street – and return the completed forms to the Rye Tourist Information Centre, in Lion Street, you can do so in exchange for a chocolate bar. That certainly isn’t boar-ing!
