I trust you are well and enjoying the sunshine.
In my ‘spare’ time I am Chair of the Trustees of a very small charity called The Loiyangalani Trust, which helps a large primary chool and some children to go through secondary education, in a remote part of north west Kenya. See our website at www.loiyangalanitrust.org.uk
We are holding a fundraising event at Bluebell Vineyard Estates on the 8th July (I happen to know the owners) and will be having wine and cheese tasting, vineyard tours and a ploughman’s lunch, all in aid of our charity. I attach a flyer with full info.
If not through the ‘official’ channels of BHBPA, if there is any way you can forward it to a few people who might be interested in coming along that would be great and it would of course be great to see you there.
Look forward to catching up soon,

"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."
"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."
"“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”"
