News: Loss of Community Space in BH

Posted on 18th January 2018

Since the plans for the new town centre have been produced there has been much discussion, debate and concern in Burgess Hill about the loss of a community space with the demolition of the Martlets Hall.  There are no plans by the developer for a replacement building, as such. Lots of local people who used the Martlets complex for all sorts of activities have voiced concerns about this situation.

As a result the Town Council has done some work towards the idea of developing a new Community and Performance Venue in the town.

You can read the full details of progress on the BHTC website here

It looks like an exciting development for the town, and you can have your say about the project by emailing this address NewPerformanceVenue@burgesshill.gov.uk

"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."
