My thanks to the Mid Sussex Times for this report on the Awards success of BHBPA Member Burgess Hill Cricket Club …
Burgess Hill Cricket Club topped off a remarkable 2018 year by winning the prestigious Active Sussex Club of the Year award at the awards evening held at the Grand Hotel in Brighton last Friday.
Having been shortlisted from an original 260 clubs nominated, Burgess Hill saw off competition from Lancing Football Club and 5 Ways Netball Club, both outstanding in their sporting field, to win the public vote. Only a couple of months ago the club won promotion to Division 2 of the Sussex Cricket League and next year will be playing at the highest level ever in their history.
In recent years the club has worked to significantly improve their facilities and now aim to work with the local Councils to upgrade their Pavilion and cricket outfield. The recognition was a result of significant success in and out of competition, development of participation in the Community, establishing education and community links, being fully inclusive, catering for people from all backgrounds and benefitting the locality in an exceptional way.
A club spokesman said: “We look forward to the 2019 season and continued progress for the club on and off the pitch.”

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. "
"Regular, well organised events, excellent updates and information by email along with a warm welcome from the Chair and Coordinator are just some of the positives at BHBPA."
"“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! ” "
"“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.""
