The first stage renovation of the Bay Hotel is on target to finish in June.

The white exterior with black windows is already in evidence on the first and second floors.

Very good to see, as the project manager told Bay Life back in March that ‘as much of the work as is possible’ is being done by local trades people.

A beaming, but very busy manager, Karen Hudson, told Bay Life today, April 12. “we are on target to finish this stage in June”,

The building, christened ‘the Grand Old Dame’ by Karen, is beginning to look fresh again.The extent of the investment is becoming manifest.

Congratulations to the owner and project team for all the hard work.

The jewel that is our crown is being restored to the extent that what is emerging will provide a new axis point on entry to the village that is likely to attract positive attention.

In terms of the profile of the Bay, when finished, the project to renovate the Bay Hotel will leave an outstanding imprint and example of what can be done to refresh the profile of Pevensey Bay.

On the Bay Life Facebook newsfeed, Tombstone Wixey commented, “great to see it done up as it’s the first place that you see when entering the bay..”. Liz Oreilly said “amazing place”.
