Thank you to the staff of Deans Place Hotel in Alfriston for helping my dad

I WOULD like to take this opportunity to publicly thank Graham Coles and the staff at the Deans Place Hotel in Alfriston.

I was the guest speaker at one of their popular “Lunch and a Lecture” events, when my father was taken ill with a seizure.

The staff acted swiftly and sympathetically to handle the situation perfectly. Colin, the local medic from Alfriston Heartstart, was soon on the scene and an ambulance was called.

Thank you to all concerned including the 80 guests attending the lecture who waited patiently whilst everything was sorted out.

I do hope that it didn’t spoil the perfectly prepared and delicious meal. Thankfully my dad is well on the road to recovery.

Kevin Gordon, Seaford
