  • If Rye is out of lockdown and restaurants are allowed to open by 20th February 2021 then Rye Bay Scallop Week will go ahead as planned
  • If Rye is still in Tier 3 or higher by mid-February and restaurants are not able to open then Rye Bay Scallop Week will be delayed until restaurants are once again allowed to welcome diners
  • If the lockdown lasts longer than the scallop season (mid May) then Rye Bay Scallop Week will have no choice but to be cancelled altogether
