This week I had this email from Lorraine Avery at Bluelite Graphics, who is a staunch BHBPA supporter and long standing business owner.

Fund a BOLA

Fund a BOLA

Posted on 11th October 2017

This year we are aiming to raise money to help fund the purchase of a BOLA Junior Bowling Machine. It’s a portable bowling machine that will allow us to improve indoor net sessions over winter and during the summer at outdoor practice. Our current machine is excellent, but we’re very much limited to using it in the outdoor nets. Taking a portable version to indoor nets will be hugely beneficial to our junior cricketer’s development. http://www.bola.co.uk/BOLA-Junior-Bowling-Machine.html How... read more

School On the Up Again

Posted on 11th October 2017

Having not held a BHBPA event there for around five years, on Wednesday morning this week BHBPA members and friends met for breakfast and a look around The Burgess Hill Academy. For many members and friends it was a chance to return to old haunts, having been educated there themselves, albeit when the school was called Oakmeeds, while others had a vested interest in the form of a child currently attending the school. When I arrived at 7.35 there were... read more

Massacre in Las Vegas

Massacre in Las Vegas

Posted on 5th October 2017

Last weekend in Las Vegas we saw the latest in a sickening string of incidents involving a man with a weapon, or in this case 21 weapons. By the time 64 year old Stephen Paddock had finished shooting innocent concert goers from his room on the 32nd floor of the Mandalay Bay Hotel, 58 people were dead or dying and 500 more were injured.  The deadly assault weapons he had taken to the hotel were all perfectly legal.  Presumably he had bought many... read more

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. "
