Burgess Hill business – in or out?
As the battle rages over Brexit, Burgess Hill businesses are being given a unique opportunity to cast their vote on European membership in an early referendum.
The Burgess Hill Business Brexit Poll will be an early opportunity to gauge who’s in and who’s out before the rest of the country goes to the ballot box on June 23.
Due to be staged during the Burgess Hill Means Business exhibition at the King’s Centre on May 6, it’s expected to be one of the main topics for debate among hundreds of visitors.
“This is probably the most important issue to face business since we last went to the polls over Britain’s relationship with Europe in 1975,” said Paul Shearing, chairman of Burgess Hill Business Parks Association, which organises the annual networking event.
“Some of us are old enough to remember the debate among business leaders back then – but a much more polarized view seems to be emerging this time around. Many companies in Burgess Hill have built strong trading links with Europe over the years – we even have some European company offices based here – so it will be interesting to see how close our straw poll is.”
The eighth Burgess Hill Means Business event is free to enter on presentation of a business card and is an informal networking event for anyone wanting to find out more about what the town has to offer.
It takes place from 10am – 3pm at the King’s Centre, Victoria Road. For more Information and to book exhibition space, contact Peter Liddell at email@example.com
