Double delights from The Grand, Eastbourne

The team at The Grand Hotel have certainly been busy these last few weeks! In May, the hotel launched a bespoke London Dry Gin called the Grand Gin, created by Hawkridge Distillers. To coincide with the launch, a range of exciting new signature gin cocktails have been added to its menu offering as well as a selection of gin-infused dishes created by the executive chef – you can never have too much gin if you ask us!

What’s more, in April, in aid of World Earth Day the hotel, which is part of Elite Hotels, decided it was time to take action and improve the beach experience for their visitors with a staff beach clean.

The ‘White Palace’ as the hotel is known to locals is opposite a lovely stretch on Eastbourne’s promenade, so 14 members of hotel staff took to the beach on what was a windy and rainy morning, to help litter pick and clean the beach.

Shining a spotlight on climate change and environmental causes, organisers Billie-Jo Clarke, sales and marketing manager, and Chris Butler, healthclub manager, were inspired to run The Grand Hotel’s first beach clean to help support local businesses along the promenade.

A total of 11 bags of mixed rubbish were collected with all the equipment provided by Neil Peters, Community Recycling Engagement Officer of Environment First, at Lewes District Council and Eastbourne Borough Councils.
