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.
"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 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. "
"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.
