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.
"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."
"If Carlsberg did networking they would do it the BHBPA way. Each event is packed with great ideas, thought provoking presentations and fun. As a small business we feel supported and part of the community. We have built friendships and business relationships and there is always plenty of advice on hand to benefit us all so don’t hesitate to join whatever the nature of your business. "
"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. "
"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."
