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,

"“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."
"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. "
"“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.""
