News: Bright Engineering Student Available

Posted on 5th June 2019

I have a grandson who is in his third year (of four)  at Stellenbosch University studying mechanical engineering. He is very clever – so much so that he is able to pay his fees through a bursary. He will be visiting us from November for 2 months and has asked me whether I know of any firm in Burgess Hill that he may be able to spend some time with to see what they do. He does not want to be paid and indeed would not be allowed to be paid as he is not British. However some work experience would be right up his alley. Last year he was selected as part of a group that went to Germany and spent time there seeing how large firms work.


Do you have any contacts who I might approach  to see if they would be able and willing to accommodate him for a week or so?  Please contact Steve Cridland at BHTC on 01444 238208


Many thanks

"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. "

Steve Cridland, CEO
(Burgess Hill Town Council)

"“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! ” "

Judi Arditi, Director

"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”"
