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.
Update from Market Place Shopping Centre

Footfall for September was again higher than last year by 10,000 people. It is great to see that the upwards trend in footfall is increasing YoY.

"“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! ” "

Judi Arditi, Director
(Travail Employment Group)

"Regular, well organised events, excellent updates and information by email along with a warm welcome from the Chair and Coordinator are just some of the positives at BHBPA."

Mike Oliver, Owner

"“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
(Sutton Winson Ltd)

"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."
