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.”
"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. "
"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 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! ” "
"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."
