Christmas Shopping Trail – 2014
Janet Woodjetts our Retail Champion and I have been pounding the streets once more finding out if retailers are happy to take part in another Christmas Tree Challenge this year.
The result to date is a resounding ‘Yes’ they are! So, if anyone reading this would like to know more about this scheme and either have a business that could participate or know of someone else that would like to be involved then please send me an email, we are looking to double the number of Independent outlets that took part last year along with a variety of prizes to offer, some coming from retailers but you may have something you’d like to donate and help promote your own business? Over the coming weeks we will let you know how the campaign is growing and if anyone would like to help the team you are more than welcome. The aim of this campaign is to raise awareness among the public of how diverse the businesses are in Hove and Portslade and to drive footfall into the area and hopefully spend ££££££s!

How it works:

Over 40000 maps are printed and distributed through various points. The maps show the participating independent retailers and where they are located within Hove and Portslade. The challenge is to get 12 different stamps from 12 of those retailers and then the completed map goes into a prize draw with the chance to win an array of prizes, one being £500 cash!!!
For more details email or call Jill 07801 295799 or tel: 07920 004639
Local school children recently entered a competition to design the poster for the campaign, judging has taken place and winners will be announced soon!

Some of the HBA Executive members take a walk!
Clive and Jill get a helping hand
Take a dull and overcast Sunday morning, throw in the chance of a bracing squall or two, and add a force six westerly just for good measure – and you can see how a five mile stroll gets a tad tiring. But we did it – HBA Chair, Jill Humphrey, Vice Chair, Ed Carr, and fellow HBA member and staunch supporter Clive Bonny (not forgetting Binky, his dog), all completed the task in aid of the Defib Fund. And after all their efforts – all you need to do is visit the “Just Giving” page, and – just give!

Our next Business Breakfast is kindly sponsored by Bungard Funeral Directors – Brighton & Hove’s oldest independent family funeral directors.

Next breakfast Thursday 13th November 2014
