DRESS AS AN ELF ON THE 12TH EVENT
The Disabilities Trust is hosting a ‘Dress as an elf’ event on Saturday 12th December at 12pm in Market Place Shopping Centre to raise money for the #ConnectAbility Appeal.
Come along and join the festive fun – from 10am the #ConnectAbility elves will help you look the part with face paint, elf ears and elf hats ready for a group elf picture at 12pm outside Costa.
All funds raised will go towards the #ConnectAbility to purchase life-changing assistive technology to help disabled people communicate. If you require more information please contact Emma Millar firstname.lastname@example.org. It would be great if local stores could get involved in this too!

Burgess Hill Town Centre Partnership Operational Town Team
"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. "
"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."
"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."
"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.
