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!
"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! ” "
""BHBPA is a really well organised and run group, great for networking and benefitting from knowledgeable local speakers with real business insight. Peter brings enthusiasm and humour which helps drive the association forward. I am glad to be part of it.""
"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. "
