Launch party for new-look Lions hotel

Eastbourne entrepreneur Sheikh Abid-Gulzar and his son Sasha are hosting a celebration launch party on February 1 to mark their latest venture.

The Lion Hotels Group has recently completed the takeover of the Lions Boship Farm Hotel on the A22 at Lower Dicker, Hailsham, and Wealden MP Charles Hendry will be the guest of honour at the event.

Other guests will include key members of the East Sussex business community, plus representatives from a number of charities in Eastbourne which the Lion Hotels Group supports.

“I am delighted that Mr Hendry will be joining us as our key guest for the lunch. I believe it is very important to work with the community,” said Mr Gulzar.

“We will also be hosting prominent members of the Eastbourne business community. The Boship is only nine miles from Eastbourne and a lot of our customers travel from Eastbourne to Hailsham to use it.”
