I am writing just to share with you information on a series of upcoming events, called Play Days, within the District to which we are seeking support from local businesses. The Plays Days are free outdoor, community focused events which offer a range of activities for families (https://www.midsussex.gov.uk/about-us/press-releases-and-publications/children-turn-out-in-record-numbers-for-play-days/).
The Council would be interested in getting businesses within the area of their town to sponsor and support the event, so that we might be able to expand the offer of activities. We would be looking for support in the range of £50 – £450.
With this in mind, I wonder if you would be able to advise please as to whether or not you think any of your members would be interested in the first instance? We are also still working on what we might be able to offer sponsoring businesses in return, I don’t suppose you would have an suggestions from similar events you might have run in the past?
Once we know exactly what the offer will be, our team can prepare a more comprehensive information sheet which can be shared with your members.
Please let me know what you think,

"Since joining BHBPA we have found it to be a dynamic and vibrant members’ organisation, with excellent, regular and informative meetings.
Peter Liddell does a first class job in ensuring that members’ interests are aired and addressed.
"“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”"
"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."
