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.
"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."
"“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.""
"Since joining BHBPA we have found it to be a dynamic and vibrant members’ organisation, with excellent, regular and informative meetings.
Peter Liddell does a first class job in ensuring that members’ interests are aired and addressed.
