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 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! ” "
"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. "
