Just when you think such things are of a bygone time, the thieves show their hand again by coming onto the business parks at dead of night and stealing diesel from trucks. We have to be aware that there are relatively few companies which work 24 hours round the clock, which means that night times and weekends on the business parks are especially convenient times for thieves to do their worst. We are fortunate to have Beacon Services on the Victoria Park, but even their patrols can be worked around it seems.
This is from Paul Padgham, whose company PDP Services has written to tell me this :-
Just wanted to let you know we had all the diesel drained from our cherry picker on sovereign business park (pic attached).
I think it was last night but could be Monday night
Might be helpful to know if anyone else was targeted this week or have any CCTV
We have reported to police

"As MP for Mid Sussex I believe passionately in the importance of a vibrant local business community in order to create and sustain fantastic opportunities that enable people to meet their responsibilities, prosper and fulfil their potential. I am committed to collaborating with BHBPA and others to be an effective collective voice for Burgess Hill."
"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."
"“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.""
"As the local hospice for the area, it’s great that we receive so much support from the BHBPA. Last year the members raised an amazing £2150 through activities such as Bake Off and the BHBiz Awards. Each well planned members meeting enables good networking opportunities and speakers that are relevant to the present climate and local issues. We are proud to be members of BHBPA."
