I am co-ordinating Burgess Hill Summer Festival and am keen to involve local businesses in the Festival. The 2016 Festival will take place from Saturday 4 – Sunday 12 June.
During previous Festivals we have put on events enabling the public to see ‘behind the scenes’ at some of our businesses – e.g. Keymer Tileworks, Ridgeview Winery and the sewage works have all been popular in previous years.
I wondered whether any of the companies on the business parks might be interested in putting on a short tour for a limited number of people? 20 people seems to be a good number and we can take bookings of names and contact numbers at our Help Point.
Thanks for your help.

"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 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.”"
"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."
"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."
