At Southway Junior School we are currently trying to raise funds to complete a sensory garden project. Burgess Hill Town Council kindly donated £2,500 for the project and we have just this week completed the first phase with this money by erecting the central outdoor classroom. Perhaps a local business might like to get involved with helping us develop the outdoor learning environment for the children by donating and enabling us to complete the project.
We have so far built a bird hide, board walk and outdoor storytelling garden (in total the PTA have raised approx. £13,000 to provide these facilities). The sensory garden will complement and complete the vision.

"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! ” "
"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."
