News: Event at Q Leisure May 23rd

Posted on 4th May 2017

A new and different event has been added to the BHBPA calendar. On May 23rd, the guys at QLeisure have offered us a slot at 4pm to try our hands at two rather different sports, ie Assault Rifles and Axe Throwing.  Yes, you did read that right, and perhaps, like me, you thought it was a joke, but if you go onto their website you will find details of this sport …

“we’ll take you through step by step until you are throwing with confidence with two or even three rotations. You will progress through a number of different targets, changing each time in shape, size and distance. The further you throw the axe through the air gets more adrenaline pumping and before you know it the atmosphere is on fire as tomahawks are slamming into the wooden bullseye”

There will also be snacks and drinks, of course, so if you wish to come along on May 23rd, please email me.  peter.liddell@bhbpa.co.uk

Our thanks to QLeisure for their generosity.

Testimonials

"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."

Wendy Agate, Community Fund Raising Manager

"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."

Mims Davies MP, Member of Parliament for Mid Sussex

"I am delighted to have a long-standing relationship with the BHBPA. Since its foundation the Association has gone from strength to strength and there is no doubt that it has brought huge benefits to its members and the business community as a whole through the partnerships it has formed with the local authorities, Sussex Police and local organisations. It is paramount that Burgess Hill businesses have an effective collective voice."

The Hon Nicholas Soames MP

"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. "
