Burgess Hill Town Council’s new look Help Point was officially unveiled on 13 November 2021 celebrating its 25th Anniversary of being open to the public.  Burgess Hill Town Council’s Mayor Anne Eves initiated the proceedings with a speech detailing the history of the Help Point; its working partnerships with Sussex Police and Job Centre Plus, alongside the addition of a public terminal computer and said that “this marks an exciting era for the Help Point.”

Leader of the Council, Robert Eggleston said “The Burgess Hill Help Point has been a great asset for the town for twenty-five years but we recognised that there was a changing pattern of usage and so we decided to broaden its scope by bringing in more technology to support resident’s needs and provide more help remotely. We also wanted to create a shop front for our many excellent local craft and artisan businesses to help them grow and prosper, as well as supporting the wider town centre economy.”
