The March issue of Sussex Living Magazine is now out. You can pick up a copy from over 160 distribution points throughout Mid Sussex, or read the issue on our website, www.sussexliving.com
What a busy month March is what with Mother’s Day on the 6th and an early Easter on the 27th. Spring is also springing up everywhere with banks of bright daffs and jewel coloured crocuses sprinkled in the grass – a lovely sight to make us all smile.
We are really excited to present our new property section in the March issue (starting on page 42), which we hope you enjoy, especially if you are in the market to move, buy or sell. Do get in touch and let us know what you think, we would love to hear your feedback.
For all things educational turn to page 52 where our Education Feature starts. We talked to two very knowledgeable retired teachers about maths and history. Both stories are really inspiring and positive and would make a particularly good read for those thinking about a career in teaching. And don’t forget it’s World Book Day on March 3rd, the ideal time for all of us to get reading.
Also working in schools in Sussex is the inspiring charity Time 4 Children. These dedicated volunteers make space for children to talk in a safe and calm environment. Read the whole story from page 60.
Tori Stevens’ recipe for Spaghetti alla Puttanesca has been temping us all in the office this month. It looks absolutely delicious and as a massive bonus is quick and easy to make. The perfect dinner! Tori also took our bright and beautiful front cover photo this month – thanks very much.
There is so much more to read in this issue, from home and garden, history, beauty and event listing, we hope you enjoy it all.
Happy Easter to all our readers and advertisers, and Happy Mother’s Day to all the Mums out there!
"“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 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 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. "
