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 firstname.lastname@example.org or 01444 251689. Please advise us of any special mobility or dietary requirements.
Jon Francies Principal
"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! ” "
"“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."
