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 !!
"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."
"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. "
"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. "
"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."
