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!
"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."
"“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! ” "
"“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.""
"“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”"
