A documentary starring a Sudbury 10-year-old, which hopes to raise awareness of cerebral palsy, is set to premiere at a pub in the town.

Star of the show Teigan Bayliss was diagnosed with cerebral palsy after she contracted neonatal herpes and then meningitis following a kiss on the lips as a newborn baby.

Her parents Tony and Beckie Bayliss, who run the Maldon Grey pub on Cats Lane in Sudbury, are now planning to premiere the documentary in their venue and are welcoming all who want to watch.

The documentary, created by Norfolk-based film company Aturn Films, was shot all in one day in October 2021 at their pub.

Teigan's brother, Phillip Bayliss, said the filming for the programme was a lot of fun and the 10-year-old was in her element.
He said: "Teigan absolutely loved it. She felt like a little superstar, whizzing around and seeing the crew."

Those wishing to watch the documentary will be welcomed into the Maldon Grey on January 2.

Phillip said: "Everyone is more than welcome to come and see the premiere.

"The main cause of all this is to raise awareness of the dangers of kissing babies on the lips and in general.

"The documentary goes into Teigan's day to day life, how she copes and manages and how she gets on with people."

The family hope the documentary, which they believe will be broadcast on national television in the new year, will raise awareness of those living with cerebral palsy and the dangers of kissing newborn babies.
