I had a long phone call from Peter Lamb, the Facilities Manager at Edwards, earlier this week. He wanted to ask me what if any transport systems have existed between the town’s stations and the business parks.
The reason for his enquiry is that Edwards are closing their operation in Crawley soon to make Burgess Hill their global headquarters. This will involve around 80-90 staff transferring to work in Burgess Hill, and most of them intending to drive each day, probably as one person in each vehicle. Edwards have little room to expand their parking, so Peter was wondering if other companies have transport between stations and the VBP.
It may be that one of the larger employers does have a system of minibuses running from station to business park inmorning and evenings. If that is the case, please let me know or speak directly to Peter on +44 7717 878913 | email@example.com Maybe there is some room for liaison here?
"“We have been members of BHBPA from its inception, and seen the organisation steadily grow and expand into the dynamic entity it is today, bringing positive benefits to all its members.""
"“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.”"
"The BHBPA is a fantastic hub for our business community to get together and catch up, discuss important local issues and connect new and interesting enterprises."
"“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! ” "
