Good afternoon Peter
Please can you pass on our huge thanks to all the supporting businesses that kindly donated to the Christmas Hamper project. The delivery of Christmas hampers in 2018 was organised by a multi-agency group comprising Burgess Hill District Lions Club, The King’s Church Mid-Sussex, Burgess Hill Town Council, Burgess Hill Youth, Burgess Hill Community Food Bank and Burgess Hill & District Rotary Club. On 8 and 9 December, 280 hampers were delivered by volunteers to families and individuals in need in Burgess Hill and surrounding area.
We are very grateful for the huge level of support provided by local businesses and we are pleased to confirm that the project will be happening in 2019. If businesses would like to received information on the project please contact Jennifer@burgesshill.gov.uk

"“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”"
"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."
"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. "
