With the days getting brighter and lighter and little lamb tails bouncing in the fields, it surely means that spring is on its way. And what a busy month March is, with Mother’s Day on the 11th and Easter just catching the tail end on the 30th, we have an issue packed full of ideas and things to do.
Along with celebrating Mother’s Day, on March 8th International Women’s Day recognises the achievements of women in the current climate. On page 82 Heather Joy explains more about this day and why you should be wearing purple.
Even with the sun (hopefully!) shining a bit more, a well-designed lighting plan can make all the difference to your home and garden. If you want to add an extra zing to your abode, turn to page 56 for our illuminating lighting feature. It’s also the perfect time of year to start sowing your vegetables, on page 52 Flo Whitaker details what to sow now and how to avoid the pitfalls of the still chilly weather.
This issue also sees the return of our popular education feature. From page 22 we have three interesting articles delving into the world of apprenticeships and positive placements to the life of Grace Kimmins who led the way for specialist care for young people with disabilities.
Have you ever considered what makes a tree a champion? Read on from page 42 for Peter Erridge’s fascinating article all about these magnificent arboreal wonders in Sussex, the different type of tree classifications and where you can find them.
From us all at Sussex Living we hope you enjoy reading our March issue and wish you an eggcellent Easter and a Happy Mother’s Day!
"“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”"
"“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.""
"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."
"As MP for Mid Sussex I believe passionately in the importance of a vibrant local business community in order to create and sustain fantastic opportunities that enable people to meet their responsibilities, prosper and fulfil their potential. I am committed to collaborating with BHBPA and others to be an effective collective voice for Burgess Hill."
