With luck you will already know about this event in early December, and I hope you have the date already written in your diary. It’s Monday 4th December from 5pm till 8pm (or later if you wish).
The evening will be one of festive fun, with lots of networking, lots of snacks such as mince pies and sausage rolls, and lots of mulled wine for those not driving.
The BHBPA Steering Group are going to be there and they want to meet you. It’s a brilliant opportunity to get to know the fabulous group of people who make up the BHBPA members. You don’t have to stay for long; perhaps just until the raffle is drawn around 7 or 7.30.
Please bring your colleagues along; bring your staff along if you wish; bring a friend. Book a meal there beforehand or afterwards – the food is excellent. By all means use it as your chance to treat the staff if you wish to do so.
We have two fantastic Ridgeview Christmas hampers for prizes in the raffle, and possibly some other prizes as well. The beneficiaries will be our favourite charity, St Peter & St James Hospice. That’s just another reason to come along.
I’ve spoken to Lance and told him that we shall try to pack the pub, like we do on quiz nights. So. you have to help in this and let me know if you are coming, and give me some idea of numbers. We had over 300 at the Amex in May. Surely we can get a good crowd for this Christmas event. Thanks for your support. Let’s pack the Woolpack!
"The BHBPA is an energetic and vocal organisation that connects and empowers and informs the local business community acting as an effective conduit to local authority and other organisations. We are proud to be part of that community and the association."
"Since joining BHBPA we have found it to be a dynamic and vibrant members’ organisation, with excellent, regular and informative meetings.
Peter Liddell does a first class job in ensuring that members’ interests are aired and addressed.
"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."
"This association was started with a lot of effort from a few local businessmen and has proved to be a very powerful and useful tool for our business. The BHBPA has influence at the top level; when action is needed, the BHBPA gets it done. We are kept in touch with all that is happening on our doorstep and will often act because of what is published in the weekly emails / newsletters."
