Farming is far from dead in east Kent, as any visit to the Wye Farmers’ Market which takes place on the village green every two weeks will quickly show you. The market has become a huge success since its establishment a few years back, and now attracts hundreds of shoppers whenever it appears on the green.
If you’re interested in a part-time job that helps keep agriculture firmly to the forefront in Wye at a time when Imperial College would have you believe it is dead, then this could be the job for you. The market is looking for a manager to work 24 hours per month on its development, involving promotion, market research and the recruitment of new stallholders. You can find the details in the job vacancy notice below.
This site was originally set up as save-wye.org to oppose a plan to turn the Kent village of Wye into a ’small town’. That proposal has now been abandoned. This site is no longer updated but please feel free to use it as you see fit. We no longer accept comments.
We've set up this archive because many other similar campaigns asked us to keep the original save-wye site alive so they can see how the campaign developed. You can also see a link to the free book about this story by David Hewson here. Many thanks to Wordpress.com for hosting the site for free.
