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

"“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”"
"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. "
""BHBPA is a really well organised and run group, great for networking and benefitting from knowledgeable local speakers with real business insight. Peter brings enthusiasm and humour which helps drive the association forward. I am glad to be part of it.""
"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."
