This is to enable planned engineering works between Ashford and Ramsgate to go ahead. All services from London will terminate at Ashford International. Buses will replace trains services on Sunday between Ashford International and Ramsgate via Canterbury West. However, Wye level crossing should remain open all day, as KCC has not issued a road closure notice. Normal scheduled services from Wye should resume with the 05.31 on Monday 4th December. More »

Please see the Wye station noticeboard for details of the replacement bus service timetable. For closure timings and other information about planned train service disruptions please check your journey with the National Rail website here.

21 Today! Wye Christmas Street Party

21 Today! Wye Christmas Street Party

Fri, 01 Dec 2017 09:00 by Parish Admin

To celebrate this occasion, and launch the Christmas season with fun and games, the 21st Wye Christmas Street Party will start Friday 1st December at 18.00. This year will see Church Street filled with more attractions than ever, and the event offers many simple pleasures for all ages to enjoy. There will be roasted chestnuts, mince pies and mulled wine, home made gingerbread and other tasty treats, carol singing by children from local schools, bell ringing, lucky dip, fairground rides, tombola, BBQ, Wye fire engine, ...the Christmas Raffle Grand Draw at 19.45 and possibly, it is whispered, a first glimpse of Father Christmas. The Christmas lights and tree are ready for him. More »

First things first, the stall holders need time and space to set up, so Church Street will be closed to all traffic between 16.00 and 20.30 Friday 1st December. Therefore, if you are lucky enough to find a parking space in Church Street today - please move your car by 16.00!

Church Street will be subject to a temporary road closure order in force for the evening of 1st December, under the somewhat Dickensian sounding Town Police Clauses Act 1847. This order will close Church Street "at a time of public procession, rejoicing or illumination, or when the streets are thronged or liable to be obstructed." Or in modern language - to make a safe space for people to gather and have fun. » Less

123 years ago today, in this ancient hall...at Wye

The inscription on a slate plaque in the Old Hall of Wye College reads "In this ancient hall of the College of St Gregory and St Martin at Wye principal Daniel Hall MA on the 29th November 1894 addressed the first student members of the South Eastern Agricultural College established by the county councils of Surrey and Kent" Although the certainties of the past are long gone, and the future for this Grade 1 building is still unclear, the Parish Council is working to secure good access and beneficial public uses for the Old Hall, Latin School and the other historic parts of Wye College.
