Dear Team Member
Summer Holiday Activities
The Town Centre Partnership Operational Team have been working hard the past few weeks to arrange Summer Activities within the town centre. These have been combined with events being held by The Martlets Shopping Centre and Market Place Shopping Centre so we can ignite some fun filled activities each week of the children’s summer holidays.
Therefore, our current plan of events is as follows:
If you are holding an event or any workshops, please do let us know and we can advertise this for you, on our website and Facebook pages, free of charge.
Update from Market Place Shopping Centre
Footfall for the month of June 2016 was UP Month on Month and Year on Year, this is great news!
We are pleased to announce that shoppers at Market Place raised £5,169 for the Kent, Surrey & Sussex Air Ambulance in a raffle to win a brand new convertible Mini Cooper. Staff and volunteers for the life-saving charity sold tickets for the draw at Market Place Shopping Centre last month (May 23rd – 28th). A grand total of £5,169.90 was raised in ticket sales and donations for the Win a Mini draw in aid of the air ambulance which relies almost entirely on public support. Thank you for all who donated.
We also have received a letter from SERV, a local voluntary service who provide an urgent transport service at night for blood and infant milk in the Sussex region and came to Market Place on 25th June 2016 to collect donations for running costs and to raise awareness of SERV to the public. SERV raised a grand total of £496 on the day of collection, which is enough to pay for the fuel for the Burgess Hill based bike for 6 months! Thank you to all who donated.

Burgess Hill Town Centre Partnership Operational Town Team
"“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”"
"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. "
"“We have been members of BHBPA from its inception, and seen the organisation steadily grow and expand into the dynamic entity it is today, bringing positive benefits to all its members.""
"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."
