Draw your vision of The Rye

The Rye boathouse

Residents are urged to get creative and draw their vision of The Rye – including what potential new visitor facilities they would like to see at the popular park.

The Draw Your Rye event encourages visitors and residents to sketch or paint their ideal version of the Green Flag Award-winning park in High Wycombe.

It is part of feasibility work - commissioned by the High Wycombe Town Committee following feedback from residents and visitors - being undertaken by Wycombe District Council about potential new facilities which could be added to The Rye.

The free workshop will be held by the boathouse on The Rye between 2pm and 5pm on Saturday 24 September.

HWTC Chairman Cllr Tony Green said:

"We have listened to residents and commissioned this feasibility study to find out what potential new facilities visitors believe could enhance The Rye even further.

"I am looking forward to see what people can come up with at the drawing workshop, which not only promises to be a fun event but it will also help the committee and the council see the vision of The Rye as imagined by our residents."

Drawing materials will be provided at the workshop but residents can bring along their own if they would prefer.

Residents unable to attend the event can still share their views via a questionnaire until 26 September:
