New Defibrillator for Sheddingdean Business Park
Today (17th November 2016) a new defibrillator came into service at local business Steve Willis Training’s Burgess Hill Training Centre on the Sheddingdean Industrial Estate. It’s prominently sited in the main car park and is available to anyone in the local area while the centre is open (Monday to Friday 8am – 5.30pm).
The defibrillator was provided by Steve Willis Training in partnership with Burgess Hill Lions, and is the 33rd such unit funded by the Lions since 2006. The Lions also support the Community First Responders who provide related training, although in an emergency anyone would be able to use it.
Lions Tony Parris and 2017 President John Carter came along to see the defibrillator go into service, along with Paul Shearing (Chairman) and Peter Liddell from the Burgess Hill Business Parks Association.
Peter Liddell, BHBPA Coordinator, commented, “ I can speak from personal experience about the importance of having an accessible defibrillator – you never know where a heart attack is going to happen!”
Steve Willis Training Centres has over 16 years’ experience in training for gas, plumbing and electrical apprenticeships and short courses. For more information call 01444 870860 / 02392 190190 or visit stevewillis.com
"The BHBPA is an energetic and vocal organisation that connects and empowers and informs the local business community acting as an effective conduit to local authority and other organisations. We are proud to be part of that community and the association."
"“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.""
"The BHBPA is the most effective and dynamic business organisation I have ever worked with in over 30 years in Local Government. It has a very active and large membership whose points of view are taken seriously by all government structures. Peter Liddell does an excellent job in providing unique and enjoyable networking opportunities where members interact and discuss points of mutual interest. It provides a forum for businesses to discuss common issues, to share experiences and to play a powerful and meaningful role in the Burgess Hill community. The BHBPA provides important and credible support for all its members and ensures that their best interests are represented where necessary. "
"“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! ” "
