Dear Team Member

This year’s Town Centre Christmas Event will take place on Saturday 19th November from 11am – 5.30pm with the Lights Switch-on at 5pm. We are running a competition for local shops and businesses to create the best window display. The competition will be judged by members of the public on the day of the event! If you would like to take part or if you have any ideas about how you would like to take part in the celebrations, please contact Kerry at Burgess Hill Town Council – 

Information regarding the Armistice Day and Remembrance Sunday services and parades will follow in the update next month. There will be events on both Friday 11th November and Sunday 13th November.

Residents and businesses are invited to join the Remembrance ceremonies at the War Memorial or to commemorate the occasion separately.

"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. "

Angela Gill, Managing Director
(Bio Productions Ltd)

"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."

The Hon Nicholas Soames MP

"As MP for Mid Sussex I believe passionately in the importance of a vibrant local business community in order to create and sustain fantastic opportunities that enable people to meet their responsibilities, prosper and fulfil their potential. I am committed to collaborating with BHBPA and others to be an effective collective voice for Burgess Hill."

Mims Davies MP, Member of Parliament for Mid Sussex

"“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”"

Bruce Millington, Manager
