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.

"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."
"“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.""
"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. "
"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."
