Personal message from BHBPA Chairman, Susan Fleet

To all members via the newsletter

Bake Off for a very special cause

I do hope you will be able to join us on Wednesday for the Bake-Off event at TKC; it will be a very special and highly enjoyable occasion to support a charity close to many of our hearts.

This is not about how good you are at cake making, and I urge everyone to come along and join in the fun at what promises to be a fantastic networking opportunity.

We will be entertained by ‘The Cake Fairy’ (AKA Mia Clift) who has more than a few tales to tell about the world of cake making, sharing a few handy tips and doubtless the odd confession to boot.  Our two judges will be caterer extraordinaire Tatjana Keenan (whom we all know and love as Tats) and senior cake decorator Shakira Tettersell from Lizzie’s Food Factory.

Whatever your level of baking skills, all entries are welcome and, remember, you don’t have to bake a cake; cookies, brownies and biscuits are welcome as much as fairy cakes or traybakes. For the more adventurous, why not have a go at creating a show-stopper to reflect your business’s theme.

Looking forward to seeing you all on Wednesday, and remember that it’s all in aid of our friends at St Peter and St James’ Hospice and all the wonderful work they do.

Susan Fleet
BHBPA Chairman

It has a very active and large membership whose points of view are taken seriously by all government structures.

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. "
