The Quiz Night at the Woolpack on March 15th for BHBPA companies and friends is now sold out. I am pleased to say that we have 19 teams all ready and cramming with Encyclopaedia Brittanica every night before bed. It will be an exciting, competitive and fun evening I feel sure.
The costs will be just £5 per member of team, in teams of between 4 and 6. That fiver will include a delicious snack of cheese or chilli nachos provided by Lance and Dee at the Woolpack. We shall also be holding a raffle which will raise money for St Peter & St James Hospice. Of course some of you may wish to get there early and eat at the pub beforehand
Teams competing will be:- Plumpton College, Newman Thomson, Sutton Winson, Nova Direct, Ridgeview, Bruynzeel, Lloyds Bank, Bio-Productions, Kreston Reeves, Bennett Christmas, Rawlison Butler, Preview, Nat West Bank, SPSJ Hospice, Station Taxis, MCL Telecom, Beacon Services, EAO and the BHBPA team of course.
There has been one drop out yesterday and so there is one possible spot left …? Looking forward to the evening – starts around 7pm.
"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 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.”"
"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."
