The community focus of the Bay Hotel is reaching a critical threshold as groups begin to meet at the forward looking public house and hotel. The latest group to announce their meetings will be held at the hotel is the local guide dogs for the blind group—Bay Life 12 April 2018

Come and join us for a fun morning of tea, coffee and cakes in aid of Guide Dogs!

Since arriving exactly a year ago this week, new landlady at the Bay Hotel, Karen Hudson, has created a transformative effect with the orientation of the focus for the public house as a meeting place for residents.

Regular Bay Life reader, Lisa Courtney made the point best with her comment on the Bay Life Facebook newsfeed. With regard to the successful Big Book Fair, held by the Friends of Pevensey Bay Library to support the local library, she said, “Thank u Bay Hotel for hosting it. First time I’ve been inside this establishment for at least 40 years!”.

A review of the Book Fair is the big story in edition 17 of the Pevensey Bay Journal, published tomorrow (Friday 13 April).

The decision by the local Guide Dogs for the Blind group, set up by Pevenesy Bay resident, Di Breed, to meet at the Bay Hotel marks another stepping stone in the successful work being undertaken by landlady Karen Hudson.

The public house and hotel is becoming a focal point for the community in relation to weekly activities that support the community.

In a communication to Bay Life on Tuesday (10 April), Di Breed asked for our support in promoting the Guide Dogs for the Blind event, which is to be on Saturday 21 April. In her poster, Di says ‘come and join us for a fun morning of tea, coffee and cakes in aid of Guide Dogs! The poster goes on to indicate that there will be ‘guide dogs tombola and a raffle’.

Di Breed, who launched interested in the local guide dog initiative in the letters pages of the Pevensey Bay Life Journal back in 2016, has dedicated herself to training local guide dogs.

The combination of the profile through the Bay Hotel in Pevensey Bay and the coffee morning, sees the group establishing a base in Pevensey Bay which will enable the cause of Guide Dogs for the Blind to be seen by an increasing number of residents.
