Monthly Update Sussex Living November 2017
Welcome to the November issue of Sussex Living. As the evenings draw in, for a few nights the skies are lit up by fireworks along with the familiar sound of whizz bang pop! Take a look on page 14 where we have local bonfire events for you to oooh and aaah at!
As the weather turns cooler, now is a good time for the gentlemen to keep their faces warm! November is the ideal time to grow a moustache for Movember, the campaign to raise funds for prostate cancer. On page 96 you can find a whole range to suit your style, and raise money in the process.
Like it or not, Christmas is nearly upon us. We have a whole host of fantastic ideas from gift guides, gardeners gifts, hamper ideas for the kids and how to navigate your way through the sometimes tricky issue of who’s hosting and who’s invited! We also have festive stuffing, pates and relishes that can be prepared now to help ease the stress, along with some simple fairy cakes that the kids can make during the Christmas holiday.
The walk is particularly poignant this month, as it takes us to Nutley and the Airman’s Grave. On page 78, Robert Veitch details the history and his ramble of the area, along with the Remembrance Day service that will be taking place there. We also have other local services and parades listed on page 81.
Ruth Lawrence recently spent a fascinating day out with a police dog unit, she wasn’t being arrested herself but learning all about these amazing animals! It was an insight into their training, their work, their handlers and how they can still live amongst a family, read all about their riveting story on page 72.
With so many more features in the magazine, from all the team we hope you enjoy a thoroughly good read!
"“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”"
"“I have belonged to this group since I started my own business, Lea Graham Associates, in 1986. The association has been through several incarnations since then, but its most recent one, BHBPA, is by far the best.
It’s much more than just a networking group, although it is supremely good at that too. BHBPA is inclusive and friendly and acts like a mutual-support society. The events are stimulating, worthwhile and often great fun and I believe most members share this opinion.”"
"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."
"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."
