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

"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."
"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. "
"“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! ” "
"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."
