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.

"“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”"
"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."
"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 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! ” "
