Here’s a rather sad item of news received this week, from the Manager of the Hickstead Hotel. I can not fully explain just how supportive and welcoming Giles has been to the BHBPA, and we wish him every success in his new venture.
“I am leaving the hotel after ten years at the helm and also leaving frontline hospitality after 42 years to spend more time with the family and to retrain in accounts over the next 9 months with a view to a career change at the tender age of 57 .
I would like to thank everyone for their support over the ten years and would hope that you would extend the same welcome I have received to Adrian Reade the new incoming manager”

"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."
"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."
"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 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! ” "
