Saturday, 2 July, 2016
Maria Caulfield, Member of Parliament for Lewes has welcomed a scholarship set-up by one of the UK’s leading independent insurance and risk management providers for the English Wine Industry, Sutton Winson.
The firm, based in Burgess Hill, has chosen to support a student attending Plumpton College, which is regarded as the UK’s centre of excellence in wine education, training and research. Full and part-time applicants for the Foundation Degree in Wine Production and the BSc (Hons) and MSc Viticulture & Oenology courses are eligible for the award.
Welcoming the news, Maria said “The wine industry is a real Sussex success story, and I am thrilled to see Plumpton College working alongside local firm Sutton Winson in order to help fuel its continuation and growth.”
Those wishing to apply for the scholarship have until Friday 8th July to do so, and should contact Chris Foss on firstname.lastname@example.org

"“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."
"“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! ” "
"“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”"
