I am writing to congratulate all the organisers of this years’ Burgess Hill Festival.

The excellent programme of over 60 events must have been a marathon to put together and have involved thousands of residents!

The spread of events was so eclectic and mixed to appeal to all age groups and interests. Burgess Hill is not always easy to please, but there really was something for everybody!

Most events were free or kept low-priced so they could be enjoyed by all.

From classical concerts and big names (fantastic fun and memories with Des O’Connor), to Teddy Bears Picnic and Lions Curry night, to Afternoon Tea and Jazz in the park, Fred Avery’s talk on the railways coming to Burgess Hill, the Quiz Night for the ‘brain boxes’ and the finale of the Tea Party celebrating HM Queen Elizabeth’s 90th Birthday for over 200 Burgess Hill children on Sunday afternoon at the fair. –every event was so well planned and attended by Burgess Hill Councillors and council staff.

Burgess Hill residents must thank everyone involved and be so grateful that our council fosters the feeling of community for all, always caring and going the extra mile for all of us.

Looking forward to 2017 already!
