The grand opening of the popular reindeer attraction will be on Sunday 22 November at Garden Pride Garden Centre, Ditchling Common. Father Christmas will be arriving at 11am to meet everyone and open his grotto. This is a fantastic festive event with half the income in support of St Peter & St James Hospice.
The Winter Wonderland Weekends run for four weekends, until Sunday 20 December, with tickets priced at £3 per person (children and adults) and every child receiving a book.
Carol Hughes, Community Fundraiser, said, “Meeting the reindeer is fun for all the family and, this year, we have pygmy goats too. It’s a great way of supporting the Hospice because it’s fun for all the family while knowing that your support really makes a difference to how we can care for our patients.”
"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."
"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. "
"If Carlsberg did networking they would do it the BHBPA way. Each event is packed with great ideas, thought provoking presentations and fun. As a small business we feel supported and part of the community. We have built friendships and business relationships and there is always plenty of advice on hand to benefit us all so don’t hesitate to join whatever the nature of your business. "
"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.
