Monthly Update Sussex Living Mar 2017
Thanks for picking up the March issue of Sussex Living Magazine, we do hope you enjoy reading it.
It’s a lovely big issue this month, full of great articles and interesting reads. Our ever-popular education feature covers the world of internships, with Sasha Kanal meeting one intern who has been working with the same company for five years and is now settled into his own role there.
We also get an inside look into graphic design, as our own designers share their Education and career stories with us. Turn to page 24 to enjoy the whole feature.
We are very blessed to have so many fascinating local personalities living in beautiful Mid Sussex, including the eminent actress Judy Parfitt. Meeting with Lisa de Silva at her lovely home, Judy spoke candidly about her acting career and her role as ambassador for Dementia UK, a charity close to her heart. Do turn to page 57 to read the whole article. Thank you Judy for such an interesting interview.
Many thanks as well to Mike Lawn who so kindly let us use some of his stunning photographs of Judy and her toy poodle, Freddie in the article and for our front cover too. We are very grateful to Mike, whose work can be seen at www.mikelawn.com
Now for some housekeeping news: this will be my last issue for a little while, as I am off on maternity leave! Amidst feeds and burps, I will try to keep up with Sussex Living life, and will certainly miss everyone here. I am handing over to the lovely and very capable Cheryl Watkins, and of course all the usual brilliant team here at Sussex Living. Adios!
"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."
"As the local hospice for the area, it’s great that we receive so much support from the BHBPA. Last year the members raised an amazing £2150 through activities such as Bake Off and the BHBiz Awards. Each well planned members meeting enables good networking opportunities and speakers that are relevant to the present climate and local issues. We are proud to be members of BHBPA."
"The BHBPA is a fantastic hub for our business community to get together and catch up, discuss important local issues and connect new and interesting enterprises."
"“I have belonged to this group since I started my own business, Lea Graham Associates, in 1986. The association has been through several incarnations since then, but its most recent one, BHBPA, is by far the best.
It’s much more than just a networking group, although it is supremely good at that too. BHBPA is inclusive and friendly and acts like a mutual-support society. The events are stimulating, worthwhile and often great fun and I believe most members share this opinion.”"
