Dear Sponsors of Sussex County Cricket Club,
We have a unique opportunity available from the PCA (Professional Cricketers Association) as a result of your sponsorship of Sussex CCC.
They are looking for a couple of businesses who are involved with us here at Sussex, to open their workplaces to some players for a day’s work experience. They are looking for a variety of industries to offer one day work placements to the players. They will need 3 or 4 companies to play host to groups of 4 people over a few weeks. Ideally they would like to begin these visits prior to Christmas as the players will be returning to duties early in the new year. Please see the attached flyer for more.
The aim of this project is to provide players with an idea of different roles in different industries, allowing players to develop and foster relationships with companies they might be interested in working for and finally to strengthen links between players and the Club’s supporters.
If you think your company might be interested in taking part, then please get in touch with Nick Denning of the PCA at NDenning@thepca.co.uk.

"“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."
"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. "
"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."
