Gay Row B&B Owners: 'We're Selling Up'
7:01am 20th September 2013
The Marazion B & B owners who refused a gay couple a double room tell Pirate FM they are being forced to sell up.
Peter and Hazelmary Bull say they have not been able to advertise the Chymorvah properly since the Equalities Act came into force.
The pair say visitor numbers are plummeting and they have been going to bed cold and hungry to make ends meet.
Hazelmary calls it heart breaking: "We feel completely insecure and uncertain as to what the future holds. We're not even looking for another property because we don't know how much we're likely to get. We have lots and lots of debts as well.
"We don't know what's going to happen to us.
"It sounds as though we're moaning and it sounds as though we're piling it on but we couldn't afford oil to heat the place last year. We would have had something to eat but we wouldn't have had a regular meal.
"So, yes, there were times when we were shivering and hungry."
A court upheld a ruling Peter and Hazelmary Bull acted unlawfully.
The pair argued they did not want Martyn Hall and civil partner Steven Preddy to stay, because of their Christian beliefs.
The verdict means a three and a half thousand pound compensation bill still stands.
The couple will challenge that in the Supreme Court next month.7:01am 20th September 2013
