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.

"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."
"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."
"The BHBPA is a fantastic hub for our business community to get together and catch up, discuss important local issues and connect new and interesting enterprises."
"“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! ” "
