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.

"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. "
"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."
"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. "
"“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.""
