BHBPA member and photographer Paul Noble had an unforgettable experience recently, when he helped Dame Vera Lynn connect with her old school, Brampton Primary in East Ham, on her 100th birthday. Paul set up his equipment in Dame Vera’s sitting room and used Skype to broadcast her image to excited school children, who then had the chance to sing Happy Birthday, as well as cover versions of the Forces’ Sweetheart’s famous songs.
Over the years Paul has been a huge asset to the BHBPA through his tireless efforts with camera and video support for BHBPA events and websites. His generosity knows no bounds. He even came to the recent quiz in an unsuccessful effort to get the team into the medal places.
"“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! ” "
"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."
"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."
"“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.""
