Monthly Update Sussex Living Sept 2017
As the year merrily skips into September and summer slowly weaves it’s way into autumn, we leave the lazy hot days behind and enter the season of golden hues and crisper evenings.
This month here at Sussex Living we have a bumper issue for you. This is the time of year where for some, thoughts turn back to school, read on from page 62 for the start of our fantastic education feature. Local writer and actor Robin Driscoll talks to us about his educational journey and how he made it to where he is today. We also had a couple of lovely work experience students in the office with us for a week. We tasked them with writing a piece each for the magazine, have a look at page 74 to see how they fared.
Love or fear them, reptiles and amphibians certainly are striking to look at. In our feature starting on page 52, Ruth Lawrence met with the East Sussex Reptile and Amphibian Society to discover how they are helping eradicate the public’s anxiety and the proper management for looking after these glorious creatures.
With thoughts turning to colder weather we have a fantastic heating feature on page 48 to get you all fired up! Whilst you may be thinking of preparing for the winter months, why not get your crafty hat on and have a read about making your own pot pourri. On page 36 Flo Whitaker explains how to make the perfect homemade gift – just in time for Christmas!
Finally, from all of us at Sussex Living we hope you have a marvellous September and your umbrellas don’t have to work too hard! And don’t forget to look out for our wonderful wedding feature coming up in the October issue.
"Since joining BHBPA we have found it to be a dynamic and vibrant members’ organisation, with excellent, regular and informative meetings.
Peter Liddell does a first class job in ensuring that members’ interests are aired and addressed.
"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."
"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 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."
