News: Black Widows in Training

Posted on 25th September 2017

E-mpower.IT Support Girl Power on the Rugby Pitch!

Following on from becoming a sponsor of Burgess Hill Rugby Football Club in March 2017, Burgess Hill based e-mpower.IT who offer Managed IT Services and IT Support to growing businesses in the south east, thought it would be good idea to take part in one of the training sessions, not with the men but; the Ladies Rugby Team – also known as the Black Widows.

E-mpower.IT’s Marketing Manager, Jo Carver and the Owner/Director’s wife, Elaine Lokhandvala headed on down to Burgess Hill rugby pitch for the training session where they also bumped into regular attendee Tamara Roberts from Ridgeview. Full of anxiety and anticipation Elaine and Jo weren’t sure quite what to expect, but, none the less got stuck into the training which included mauls, pad work, ball work and finished with a quick game of tag rugby at the end. When asked “why they wanted to attend?” Jo Carver advised, “As a sponsor of BHRFC we wanted to show some ‘active support’, what better way to do this than participate in a rugby training session along with the boss’s wife! It was a chance to show our support as well as help promote the Black Widows.” She continued by saying “The training session was fun and gave us a flavor of what was involved. The girls are a friendly, social bunch and if you are looking for something different and fun to do which also helps you to get fit, then women’s rugby could be for you.” Meanwhile, owner/Director Jaffer Lokhandvala, sat sensibly at a distance; taking photos from the sidelines – to view them visit our blog http://e-mpower.it/great-it-support-for-growing-businesses-it-firm-support-bhrfc/

"The BHBPA is the most effective and dynamic business organisation I have ever worked with in over 30 years in Local Government. It has a very active and large membership whose points of view are taken seriously by all government structures. Peter Liddell does an excellent job in providing unique and enjoyable networking opportunities where members interact and discuss points of mutual interest. It provides a forum for businesses to discuss common issues, to share experiences and to play a powerful and meaningful role in the Burgess Hill community. The BHBPA provides important and credible support for all its members and ensures that their best interests are represented where necessary. "

Steve Cridland, CEO

"I am delighted to have a long-standing relationship with the BHBPA. Since its foundation the Association has gone from strength to strength and there is no doubt that it has brought huge benefits to its members and the business community as a whole through the partnerships it has formed with the local authorities, Sussex Police and local organisations. It is paramount that Burgess Hill businesses have an effective collective voice."
