Good Morning Peter
Reading through your recent newsletter I came across the article about the vans and individuals cruising the estate as magpies looking for some shiny gains, I thought I would share recently I noticed a white transit Luton high roof van drive in and disappear around the corner to the side of our unit. Curiosity and instinct got the better of me I went to take a look at where they were delivering to and sure enough there was one guy sat in the van and another out looking and going through some fencing on a pallet we had delivered for a job in Crawley and clearly was not resembling scrap !!
On challenging as to what was he doing his reply was ” Just having a look mate thinking about getting some for myself” with that got in the van and they zipped out of the yard.
This was at about 2 in the afternoon and they were on the take so to say. Van registration number was RX 04 XED. It may be of interest to some one.
On this note as you know I have two business at Victoria business centre Aprimatic Automation Ltd the security company, plus Spiral flooring Ltd, the flooring business, we have just taken over another unit in unit 5 to convert to a showroom for the Spiral Flooring business. This is to enable potential customers and public to visit.
As the Spiral flooring business is growing at a remarkable rate we are looking for flooring fitters either established fitters looking to increase their volume of work or trainees looking for a flooring apprenticeship, if there is any interest or help available we would be most grateful for the info.

"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."
"“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”"
