Emily Darnell & Esther Dawson are very proud to announce that the Sussex EA/PA Network will be four years old next month and although they’ve had a quieter period over the last year, they are kick-starting their regular quarterly meetings with a birthday party at Ridgeview Wine Estate on Tuesday 16th July from 5.30pm until 7.30pm.
Ridgeview have had a fantastic 2019 so far, winning the World’s Best Winemaker Award at the International Wine & Spirits Competition at the end of 2018 and HRH The Duchess of Cornwall paying them a visit to congratulate them on that award, just four weeks ago. As it happens, The Duchess grew up in Plumpton and went to school in Ditchling!
Therefore, Sussex PA Network would like to invite EAs, PAs & Office Managers to a Garden Party in the vineyard to help celebrate their birthday and to enjoy the beautiful surroundings in the South Downs National Park.
There will be wine, soft drinks and nibbles to enjoy in the wine garden (weather permitting, we’ll be in our tasting room if the sunshine we order, doesn’t arrive) Esther will also conduct a tour of the vineyard & winery for those who haven’t visited before.
2020 is going to be a big year for the network and we hope you can join us to socialise and discuss our plans for the future. They look forward to you coming along to help celebrate our birthday and please forward this newsletter onto any other PAs, EAs or Office Managers who you think might be interested in coming along.

"“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! ” "
"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. "
"“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”"
"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."
