Some of our Successes

BHBPA successes in more recent years have included:

  • responding promptly to traveller incursions
  • holding the bi-annual BH Biz Awards ceremony
  • overseeing the reinstatement of effective postal services
  • re-branding from “industrial estate” to “business park”
  • improved signage
  • organising regular business topic led networking events
  • establishment of the bi-annual BHMB exhibition
  • creation of a regular newsletter
  • growing a solid membership base of well over 100 businesses

The Coordinator remains the focal point for communication within the Association, and between the Association and interested 3rd parties. As we enter 2020, a new Coordinator has been appointed, and there is a strong desire to take the benefits of being an Association to the next level, as Burgess Hill itself develops as a town and district.

Testimonials

"“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”"

Bruce Millington, Manager
(Sutton Winson Ltd)

"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 Hon Nicholas Soames MP

"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."
