On a warm evening last Tuesday 18 teams gathered to take part in the BHBPA Quiz, and fiercely contested it was. By the time it finished, Leap Environmental had managed to hold on to an early lead to win by just one point with 52 out of 70. Runners Up were Romping Donkeys (The Hospice team) with Beginners Luck in 3rd on 49.5.
It was generally felt to be one of the more difficult quizzes, and congratulations to all the teams who made the effort to come and raise a goodly sum for the Hospice. To get 17 teams out from the BHBPA is a fantastic effort. I feel sure that most of them enjoyed the evening and probably got to know some work colleagues better during the evening.
You will have spotted no doubt that the photos are different from normal in the key aspect of being clearly visible – ie you can see them. The reason for that was that I forgot to bring my phone and had to rely on Paul Noble to take some pics. Apparently he has done this sort of thing before! Mind you, it appears as if he failed to get a pic of the winners, ironically. I’m sure they will have spotted that he was on our team and think that it’s just sour grapes, but no!
Thanks go to Lance and Dee and the staff at the Woolpack, Mike the quiz master and all those who came out to support. I reckon we made around £500 on the night.
"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. "
"“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! ” "
"“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”"
"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."
