Dear Team Member
August was a fantastic month for the Town Centre Partnership with all events being very well received and the turn out for all events was not only high, but also, better than last year which is great news. Thank you for all who took part and made Burgess Hill town centre a brilliant destination to visit over the Children’s Summer Holidays.
The Town Centre Partnership Operational Team are already busy working on our Christmas Celebration and Lights Switch-On event which will take place on Saturday 19th November. This year’s theme is ‘Dickensian Christmas’ and the event will run from 11am – 5.30pm with the Lights Switch-on at 5pm.
If you have any ideas about how you would like to take part in the celebrations, please contact Kerry at Burgess Hill Town Council. Kerry@burgesshill.gov.uk

"“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.""
""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.""
"“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”"
"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."
