Oak Bay says hello to new Tweed magazine

Oak Bay Beach Hotel sets the scene for official unveiling

Oak Bay’s elite turned out in force to greet the newest member of the community as Tweed magazine was unveiled last night.

Published by Oak Bay News’ owner Black Press, Tweed was officially unveiled by Publisher Penny Sakamoto and Director, Advertising Sales Oliver Sommer in a gala event held in the Oak Bay Beach Hotel’s David Foster Theatre.

“Tweed tells the story of a unique and eclectic community through those who know it best, its residents,” said Sakamoto. “Readers from both within and outside its geographic boundaries can look forward to amazing narrative that explores the essence of what makes Oak Bay great.”

Guests included the hotel’s owners Kevin and Shawna Walker, who, along with their family, are featured in the inaugural edition of the magazine.

Others who praised the magazine included Oak Bay Mayor Nils Jensen and former mayor Christopher Causton, who makes his debut as columnist in the pages of Tweed.

The first edition of the Oak Bay-focused magazine, which features work from well-known local photographers and writers, also contains a detailed peek into Jim Kirk’s unique home on the Avenue, in the heart of Oak Bay, and a visit with artist Pat Martin Bates.

Tweed is delivered to doorsteps with the Oak Bay News, and is available at a number of local businesses.
