The Home School Association at Southway Junior School in Burgess Hill (the parent fundraising committee) are raising funds for completion of the sensory garden project. We have recently been lucky enough to be nominated for the Tesco Bags of Help blue token scheme, and the Waitrose green token scheme. Both schemes will be running in stores from 1st July 2017 and wondered if local businesses would be kind enough to support the local school when they are shopping either at Tescos (in Burgess Hill and Haywards Heath) or Waitrose in Burgess Hill. An easy way to help us complete this fantastic project is by popping one of the tokens in the nominated collection box.
A link to the HSA’s page on the school website provides more information about the project http://www.southwayjunior.co.uk/website/sensory_garden_project/184367
"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."
"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”"
"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."
