After a couple of months deliberating, designing and building, the new BHBPA website has gone live this week. You can see it when you go to www.bhbpa.co.uk as before. The old website, which served us well for nearly seven years, looked rather tired. The new one, on the other hand, is responsive and looks more fluid, exciting and modern. We now have full control over all the content. I hope you will agree upon the improvement.
Of course there are changes and understandably there have been some teething issues when I came to write this newsletter, but we are very pleased with the work Preview Graphics have done, and have to thank Wes Earp in particular for his efforts on our behalf. You will find that there is no longer a password protected members area, nor is there a forum. It was decided that each were no longer necessary. You can still find a list of member companies, and if you click on the name you will be taken straight to their website. As for the Forum, we had had no posting on there since 2012!
Do take a look and if you have a minute get back to me with comments – a kind of review as it were. By the same token, if you approve and would like to give me a testimonial to put on the site, please feel free to do so.
"“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! ” "
"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."
"Regular, well organised events, excellent updates and information by email along with a warm welcome from the Chair and Coordinator are just some of the positives at BHBPA."
