News: Building to Let / The Demise of Nova

Posted on 20th September 2017

This week I received from Stiles Harold Williams the details of a building which is available to let on the newer part of the Victoria Business Park.

As the photo shows, it is the former premises of our good friends at Nova Direct Mail, who were active members of the BHBPA for many years. Andy, Jon and Stuart often supported the BHBPA, eg at events, quiz nights and at the Amex in May. Indeed, they used to do the invoice mailing for us and were always very helpful.

Sadly, times change and so do fortunes, and the business went into administration during the summer when a number of good people no doubt suffered, including Andy Fry, whose business it was. I know that some of them have managed to find new positions, and wish them all well.

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
(St Peter & St James Hospice)

"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. "

Steve Cridland, CEO
(Burgess Hill Town Council)

"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."

Nick Broom, Managing Director
(PVL UK Ltd)

"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."
