Dear Burgess Hill Business Park Association Member
The Burgess Hill Academy Launch Event
It is with great pleasure that we write to invite you to the launch of The Burgess Hill Academy on Tuesday 27 September 2016 from 6pm to 7.30pm.
We would like to share our vision for creating an outstanding academy for the Burgess Hill community. The school – formerly Oakmeeds Community College – joined the University of Brighton Academies Trust on 1 September, entering an exciting new phase of its history focused on inspiring, motivating and enthusing young people to meet their potential.
The evening will commence with a drinks reception at 6pm, followed by presentations at 6.30pm from Paul Griffiths, Chief Executive of the University of Brighton Academies Trust and Principal Jon Francies. After which there will be a Q&A session, and the opportunity to view a model classroom and a display of improvements planned for the school buildings.
We would be extremely grateful if you could RSVP by no later than Friday 16 September to email@example.com or 01444 251689. Please advise us of any special mobility or dietary requirements.

"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."
"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."
"Since joining BHBPA we have found it to be a dynamic and vibrant members’ organisation, with excellent, regular and informative meetings.
