There is a great new venture at St Edward’s Church in Burgess Hill, where a new cafe comes highly recommended. The Mustard Seed Cafe is now a BHBPA Member.
The cafe is open 3 days a week, Thur/Friday/Sat, is run solely by volunteers, and any profits are used for the community, e.g. young carers day, helping with meals in school holidays etc.
The breakfast and lunch menu is cooked to order and at a very reasonable price. There is always a selection of home made cakes on offer too.
On the weekend of July 14th /15th St Edward’s Church will be celebrating 50 years since its inauguration. On the 14th we will be hosting a free community BBQ, open to all, with music, games and activities for children. On the 15th at 6.00.p.m. there will be a special service taken by the Lord Bishop of Chichester, followed by free refreshments in The Weald.
I wonder if you could possibly add the details of these events in the newsletters for members. We would like to see lots of members join us on July 14th, but also at other times at the Mustard Seed Cafe !!
"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."
"If Carlsberg did networking they would do it the BHBPA way. Each event is packed with great ideas, thought provoking presentations and fun. As a small business we feel supported and part of the community. We have built friendships and business relationships and there is always plenty of advice on hand to benefit us all so don’t hesitate to join whatever the nature of your business. "
""BHBPA is a really well organised and run group, great for networking and benefitting from knowledgeable local speakers with real business insight. Peter brings enthusiasm and humour which helps drive the association forward. I am glad to be part of it.""
"“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! ” "
