Love the Bay

By | Featured, Love the Bay

Meet Clare Lovelace, the proud owner of two Soul Tribe yoga studios in Batemans Bay. 🧘‍♀️ Clare believes in the power of yoga, because it is not just about the psychical yoga postures, but also about how you relate to yourself and others and how to find piece of mind. She is passionate about creating a safe place where both beginners and experienced ‘yogi’ can develop their skills.

Clare joined the Batemans Bay Business and Tourism Chamber because she wants to support local businesses thrive! She feels the Love the Bay campaign has created a real pink ‘buzz’ around town and has given Batemans Bay and surrounds a ‘positivity injection’!

By | Featured, Love the Bay

Finding the best fit for every customer, is what Sansoms Furniture One does well, owner Vaughan Sansom explains in this exclusive Love the Bay video. That is probably why they received so much support from their customers and the community after they lost their building in the NYE 2019/2020 bushfires. Their new showroom is located on Orient Street, in the heart of Batemans Bay. Vaughan and local manager Kim are huge supporters of the Love the Bay campaign, highlighting wonderful businesses that people otherwise might overlook. Sansoms Furniture One is also an active member of the Batemans Bay Business and Tourism Chamber. 💕 This Love the Bay business video has been produced by local photographer/videographer Martin Helmreich from Production Haus www.productionhaus.com.au💕 Check out our Love the Bay YouTube channel to watch all videos of your local businesses: https://bit.ly/3gXa0WJ  💕
