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 have belonged to this group since I started my own business, Lea Graham Associates, in 1986. The association has been through several incarnations since then, but its most recent one, BHBPA, is by far the best.
It’s much more than just a networking group, although it is supremely good at that too. BHBPA is inclusive and friendly and acts like a mutual-support society. The events are stimulating, worthwhile and often great fun and I believe most members share this opinion.”"
"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."
"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."
"“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! ” "
