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.”
"“I can’t speak highly enough of the BHBPA. As a small local business we feel very much part of a community and thoroughly enjoy the annual exhibition and meetings throughout the year. Over the years we have built fantastic working relationships with many BHBPA members and every meeting and event offers us opportunities to work with more. This is networking at its best! ” "
"“Sutton Winson have been members of the BHBPA for around 7 years. We have found it a great way to keep in touch with Burgess Hill businesses and to meet with likeminded people. It’s not just another “networking” group, as it tackles the real issues and gets things done”"
"As MP for Mid Sussex I believe passionately in the importance of a vibrant local business community in order to create and sustain fantastic opportunities that enable people to meet their responsibilities, prosper and fulfil their potential. I am committed to collaborating with BHBPA and others to be an effective collective voice for Burgess Hill."
"As the local hospice for the area, it’s great that we receive so much support from the BHBPA. Last year the members raised an amazing £2150 through activities such as Bake Off and the BHBiz Awards. Each well planned members meeting enables good networking opportunities and speakers that are relevant to the present climate and local issues. We are proud to be members of BHBPA."
