The new library in Burgess Hill, part of the wider town centre regeneration, has now opened. It’s a bright modern space and a lovely public facility.
Business-people might want to know that upstairs there is a bank of 10 PCs to use, each with access to the Microsoft Office suite plus several Windows based browsers for internet access. There’s also some comfortable desks with power sockets suitable for a bit of quiet work and a small area for 1 2 1 conversations away from the office. You’re even allowed to take in a coffee – but sealed tops please.
A further couple of services which might interest the business community are COBRA (The Complete Business Reference Adviser) and eMagazines accessible either in the library or on-line.

"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. "
"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.""
"The BHBPA is an energetic and vocal organisation that connects and empowers and informs the local business community acting as an effective conduit to local authority and other organisations. We are proud to be part of that community and the association."
