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.

"“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! ” "
"The BHBPA is the most effective and dynamic business organisation I have ever worked with in over 30 years in Local Government. It has a very active and large membership whose points of view are taken seriously by all government structures. Peter Liddell does an excellent job in providing unique and enjoyable networking opportunities where members interact and discuss points of mutual interest. It provides a forum for businesses to discuss common issues, to share experiences and to play a powerful and meaningful role in the Burgess Hill community. The BHBPA provides important and credible support for all its members and ensures that their best interests are represented where necessary. "
"The BHBPA is an energetic and vocal organisation that connects and empowers and informs the local business community acting as an effective conduit to local authority and other organisations. We are proud to be part of that community and the association."
""BHBPA is a really well organised and run group, great for networking and benefitting from knowledgeable local speakers with real business insight. Peter brings enthusiasm and humour which helps drive the association forward. I am glad to be part of it.""
