With luck you will already know about this event in early December, and I hope you have the date already written in your diary. It’s Monday 4th December from 5pm till 8pm (or later if you wish).
The evening will be one of festive fun, with lots of networking, lots of snacks such as mince pies and sausage rolls, and lots of mulled wine for those not driving.
The BHBPA Steering Group are going to be there and they want to meet you. It’s a brilliant opportunity to get to know the fabulous group of people who make up the BHBPA members. You don’t have to stay for long; perhaps just until the raffle is drawn around 7 or 7.30.
Please bring your colleagues along; bring your staff along if you wish; bring a friend. Book a meal there beforehand or afterwards – the food is excellent. By all means use it as your chance to treat the staff if you wish to do so.
We have two fantastic Ridgeview Christmas hampers for prizes in the raffle, and possibly some other prizes as well. The beneficiaries will be our favourite charity, St Peter & St James Hospice. That’s just another reason to come along.
I’ve spoken to Lance and told him that we shall try to pack the pub, like we do on quiz nights. So. you have to help in this and let me know if you are coming, and give me some idea of numbers. We had over 300 at the Amex in May. Surely we can get a good crowd for this Christmas event. Thanks for your support. Let’s pack the Woolpack!
"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."
"“We have been members of BHBPA from its inception, and seen the organisation steadily grow and expand into the dynamic entity it is today, bringing positive benefits to all its members.""
"As MP for Mid Sussex I believe passionately in the importance of a vibrant local business community in order to create and sustain fantastic opportunities that enable people to meet their responsibilities, prosper and fulfil their potential. I am committed to collaborating with BHBPA and others to be an effective collective voice for Burgess Hill."
"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."
