We’re back with a bang this October with an issue packed so full of fabulous features it’s hard to know where to begin!
Let’s start with our fantastic walk on page 22 around West Grinstead by Robert Veitch and his lovely niece. As golden leaves crunch underfoot it’s a splendid time to step outside for an autumnal stroll in the countryside.
At the end of the month many of us don our spooky costumes and head out for some trick or treating fun. Take a look at page 106 if you need inspiration for a creatively creepy Halloween, with some great ghoulish ideas for the kids and home.
Apologies for mentioning the Christmas word in October, but it’s the perfect time of year to start planning for the big day and booking events. Over the next three months we will be running a Christmas countdown to help with the preparations. On page 25, we start with the tricky politics of planning the office party, and how to navigate your way through it unscathed! Also, over the next three issues we are featuring handy guides to the different types of hampers that you can personalise for your loved ones. Look out for the perfect traditional basket on page 36.
Do you like a challenge? If you do, turn to page 119 for our new crossword which we will be running every month. Be warned, you’ll have to ponder over the clues till the following issue for the answers though! We’d like to thank everyone who entered our summer quiz; the answers and winners can be found on p.103.
Along with numerous other articles such as prehistoric Lewes (p.104), West Sussex Care Month (p.80), helping the hedgehogs (p.62) and our wedding special (from p.40) to name but a few, from all of us here at Sussex Living we hope you enjoy a truly bumper read.
"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."
"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. "
"“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! ” "
"“Sutton Winson have been members of the BHBPA for around 7 years. We have found it a great way to keep in touch with Burgess Hill businesses and to meet with likeminded people. It’s not just another “networking” group, as it tackles the real issues and gets things done”"
