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.
"I am delighted to have a long-standing relationship with the BHBPA. Since its foundation the Association has gone from strength to strength and there is no doubt that it has brought huge benefits to its members and the business community as a whole through the partnerships it has formed with the local authorities, Sussex Police and local organisations. It is paramount that Burgess Hill businesses have an effective collective voice."
"“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.”"
"“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.""
"“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”"
