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
"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."
"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."
"“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”"
""BHBPA is a really well organised and run group, great for networking and benefitting from knowledgeable local speakers with real business insight. Peter brings enthusiasm and humour which helps drive the association forward. I am glad to be part of it.""
