Burgess Hill company, PVL are working in partnership with Brighton and Hove Council, suppling reflective safety sticker packs. These have been handed out by Brighton & Hove’s road safety officers who are working hard to ensure that the pedestrians of Sussex are as visible on the roads as our emergency services. Now that the clocks have gone back it is even more important to be safe and to be seen.
PVL are the UK’s largest supplier of high visibility marking kits to the police, fire and ambulance services in the UK and worldwide. The off-cuts from these kits are cut into creative shapes for the pedestrian recipients of the packs to affix to items like bikes, prams, helmets, etc.
Nick Broom, CEO of PVL, said: “The team at PVL work tirelessly to ensure we do all we can to help to save lives on the road. In the winter months, when the mornings and evenings are dark, fixing a few of our high visibility stickers to a jacket or bag can provide a driver with enhanced visibility. They don’t require power or maintenance, and these stickers continue to reflect light in all weather. The safety sticker packs encapsulate the ethos we share as a team at PVL, to keep people safe and visible on our roads.”
Councillor Gill Mitchell, chair of the city’s Environment, Transport and Sustainability Committee, said: “It’s great to see these off-cuts being put to such a good purpose and we are grateful for the help PVL has given our road safety team. The material is high quality so ideal for helping people to be seen. With the evening commute now much darker – it’s easy to miss pedestrians and cyclists in a busy urban environment.”
Able and Willing, a supported council-owned business that employs disabled people, assists with packaging the stickers with an accompanying road safety message for all road and pavement users in Brighton & Hove.

"“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.""
"“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 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."
