Dear Past and Present Friends, Customers and Correspondents of The Shoreham Inn,

Please forgive the mass notification, but I have a big announcement. As some (many, most, all…at least some) of you know, Dominic and I have thought long and hard and have decided to put our beloved Shoreham Inn on the market. We have also debated whether to try and be as quiet about this news as possible, worried that we’ll upset current and future business that we count on, but have now decided we’re going to shout it from the rooftops! We’re still here and having a good time, and so nothing of your Shoreham Inn experience will seem altered as you still frequent our business, but, the time has come for us to think about what is next.

We are more than happy to answer any and all questions, but for now, we are going to have a little fun while trying to generate some buzz, interest, zip and zing!

That’s where you come in, the zip and zing! 

 We’re running a little contest to stir up wider interest and awareness in the Inn and the more the merrier.  Feel free to forward this on to anyone and everyone you think might have fun participating

So, here’s the deal:

“Who should buy the Shoreham Inn and why?”
