Sussex Living monthly update April 2016
Thank you for picking up the April issue of Sussex Living Magazine.
The sight of spring lambs frolicking through the fields is enough to bring joy to everyone’s heart – I hope you like the little fellow on the front cover! In this issue Ruth Lawrence visited local farmer Donald Blake at his farm in Hurstpierpoint (p.69) where she heard the story of his farming life – a good life indeed.
With another busy month behind us, we have a full and exciting issue for you. We celebrate the Queen’s 90th Birthday by taking a look at her many visits to Mid Sussex (p.6), and make sure you check your local town information to see if they have any celebrations in store.
We get your home and garden spick and span with our spring cleaning feature starting on page 22, with handy tips and tricks from Lisa de Silva. As a double whammy turn to page 62 where you can see how to get the most health benefits out of your cleaning, with our new monthly fitness feature, Body Buzz. Who knew cleaning could be so worthwhile?!
This April is National Mills Weekend on the 14th and 15th. From page 29 you can read about the mills and windmills in Mid Sussex which will be open to visit, although there are many more open all over the country which you can find on their website, www.nationalmillsweekend.co.uk
With the warmer weather many gardens are opening for the NGS Open Garden season, and we visited Banks Farm in Balcombe (p.34). There are many to visit and they make a wonderful day out for keen gardeners and nature lovers, and all raise money for charity.
We wish all our readers and advertisers a happy April, and we will see you here next month!
"The BHBPA is a fantastic hub for our business community to get together and catch up, discuss important local issues and connect new and interesting enterprises."
"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. "
"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."
"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."
