The meeting at Hickstead Hotel is one we look forward to each year. Giles Paul, the Manager, is very keen to host a meeting for the BHBPA and he contributes to our wellbeing in other ways too. We thank him for his generosity. The meeting, on Tuesday, January 26th at 8am. is free to members.
We are delighted to have Peter Lamb of Edwards High Vacuum to speak at the meeting. Peter is a Senior Manager responsible for an aspect of technology development and is Site Manager of Edwards Burgess Hill. he will give a presentation about what Edwards does in Burgess Hill and relate it to what they do globally.
He will join us for breakfast and will take questions from the audience afterwards. I am especially keen to find out what exactly they do at Edwards and just how successful they are.

"“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”"
"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."
"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. "
"“I have belonged to this group since I started my own business, Lea Graham Associates, in 1986. The association has been through several incarnations since then, but its most recent one, BHBPA, is by far the best.
It’s much more than just a networking group, although it is supremely good at that too. BHBPA is inclusive and friendly and acts like a mutual-support society. The events are stimulating, worthwhile and often great fun and I believe most members share this opinion.”"
