News: Young Artisan of the Year

Posted on 4th December 2018

Sponsorships wanted for this prestigious award competition…

The Young Artisan of the Year Competition (YAY)  will be in its 33rd year in 2019.  The work produced by these young people is amazing and as the organisers we would like to attract more sponsorship if possible.  Last year over 10,000 people came into the marquee to see their work; it is always a great attraction at the show. Details of the competition are here

The brochure for the South of England Show is now available –

You can see on page 2-3 of the brochure the levels of sponsorship – platinum, gold , silver and bronze – which can be directed towards one or any of the events at the show.   In return there are free tickets etc and loads of publicity. Last year ‘The Arts Society’  raised  £2,500 for YAY, and this was the largest single sponsorship for YAY, so most of the sponsorship amounts are quite modest.

Testimonials

"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”"

Bruce Millington, Manager
(Sutton Winson Ltd)

""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 am delighted to have a long-standing relationship with the BHBPA. Since its foundation the Association has gone from strength to strength and there is no doubt that it has brought huge benefits to its members and the business community as a whole through the partnerships it has formed with the local authorities, Sussex Police and local organisations. It is paramount that Burgess Hill businesses have an effective collective voice."
