Monthly Update Sussex Living April 2017
As we leap headfirst into Spring, with the blossoms appearing on trees and the evenings getting longer it’s the perfect time to stretch our legs and venture out into the scenic countryside.
In this issue we feature two beautiful gardens to explore. Starting on p.24 Hanna Lindon takes in the views and horticulture at the exquisite Highdown and Birchanger Gardens, which may even give you some inspiration for your own plot. The beautiful picture featured on our cover was taken at Highdown Gardens.
If you’re a regular golfer, or even if not, you may be curious to see what a golf lesson would involve. Ruth Lawrence and Robert Veitch are put through their paces by retired golf pro Chris White. With a bit of golfing history thrown in, it makes for an interesting read on their different styles; see how they fare on p.48.
We have an eggciting Easter quiz for you on p.64! Test your knowledge and see if you could be in with a chance of winning some generously donated prizes from our advertisers. Easter is the perfect time for entertaining children with an egg trail; Sasha Kanal gives some great tips on p.66.
On p.68, with Robert Veitch doing the walk whilst Les Campbell continues to recuperate, giving us a thoroughly enjoyable meander through history, walking from Mount Caburn to Glynde.
I hope you enjoy reading this months issue as much as I have working on it. From us all here at Sussex Living, we wish a Happy Easter to all our readers and advertisers. See you next month!
"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. "
"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."
"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."
"“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.”"
