About

What is the bayguide?  Who are we?  And why are we doing this?

We are two friends who live in Herne Bay.  Neither of us was born here so you could say that we have both chosen the town as our home.  We think it is an undiscovered gem on the North Kent coast, which too often gets overshadowed by its more famous neighbours like Whitstable and Margate.  So, although a bit of us wants to keep it that way, there is another part which wants to share what we love about Herne Bay with the rest of the world.

We are not tied to any political organisations or financial institutions.  All the opinions expressed on this site are personal.  We are both committed to establishing and building a sustainable environment.  If you live in Herne Bay, Herne or Broomfield, one of our aims on this website is to encourage you to leave your car on the driveway and, instead of heading off to out of town multinationals, to at least take a look at some of the small local shops, bars, restaurants and other attractions in our town.  And if you are a visitor to our beautiful seaside town, we’d like to suggest that you spend at least a day exploring what it has to offer.
