A walk on the wild side

Published by under About Wye

For those who have not been able to get out and experience the woodlands of Wye, and those looking in from parts of the world where it is winter. Let Wyeweb bring you a taste of what’s going on here at the moment.

Walking through the woods there are glorious shafts of sunlight streaming through the trees. Plenty of wild flowers, some hiding but there if you look. The Primroses have been out for a while but are still visible together with an abundance of violets. Cowslips have suddenly appeared accompanied by Wild Strawberry flowers.  Patches of Bluebells appear at random locations.

It  pays to look up and see the bright green at the tops of the extremely tall Beech trees lit by the sun. Fresh new leaves on the trees become opaque in the light. What a difference the sun makes!

Tabby grey cat mystery leads to Wye

Published by under About Wye

Have you seen me ?

Ramsgatecat-150x225

The male neutered tabby grey cat pictured here went missing from it’s home in Ramsgate two years ago. His family miss him terribly and continue to search for him.

He wore a tag which identifies the fact that he is Micro chipped. Mysteriously his tag has turned up in Little Chequers Wye and was found by Mike Adams. This means either he was in Wye, or someone who had dealings with him  was in Wye or indeed he could still be here!

Some kind hearted person may simply have given this tabby a home, or be feeding him. How did his tag get from Ramsgate to Wye? If anyone has any information  please contact 07843156855.

Wye Sponsored Ride

Published by under About Wye

Olantigh 3 Olantigh 4

Olantigh 2 Olantigh Ride 1

Yesterday saw the annual invasion of horseboxes heading through our village on their way to Olantigh Park for the East Kent sponsored ride.

Attracting 600 entrants each year and in its 37th year, The East Kent Ride is one of the country’s largest and most popular sponsored rides.

Following a 10 mile cross-country course across some of the area’s most striking  countryside, with a range of approximately 18 optional fences, the event offers an exceptional ride for all abilities, from the most tentative to the most adventurous. At each fence there is an option between a two foot or three foot jump, in addition to five bonus jumps at various sites around the course, which are more challenging and possibly larger.

Not distracting from the fun and enjoyment of the event, The East Kent Ride is a sponsored event with the aim of raising money for charity and has so far raised in excess of £200,000 since its conception.
