Event: Sustainable Travel

Tuesday 13th June, 16:30 to 19:00, Martlets Hall, Burgess Hill      – Free to attend

In partnership with Mid Sussex District Council, Burgess Hill Business Parks Association and Haywards Heath & District Business Association

Oh to escape the rush hour! Not to mention the daily hunt for a parking space and rising petrol prices. But how? Train, bus, walk, cycle? Delays, rain, narrow roads, sweaty armpits…

…not always. Join us to explore alternative options for commuting and business journeys. We’ll learn about the initiatives being explored as part of the Burgess Hill regeneration to make sustainable travel easier and a Mid Sussex based company successfully encouraging employees out of their cars and reducing business mileage.
