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!
"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. "
"“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”"
"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. "
"“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! ” "
