Hurstpierpoint Traders Association has recently had a change in leadership with David Hampson and Gill Blackburn being appointed to co-chair the organisation.
The pair take over from Lucy Driver, of Southdowns Cellars, who chaired the group for three years. “All of us are tremendously grateful to Lucy,” Gill commented. “She did a great job over a long period of time. Our job is now to follow in her footsteps and we are both very excited about this next chapter in Hurstpierpoint’s shopping history.”
The group has its fist meeting under the new leadership at the beginning of this month and there will be plenty of ideas on the table for traders to collectively consider in order to make an impact on the village shopping experience. “There is lots to be positive about in Hurst,” Gill continued, “and that’s what we will be focusing our attention on now as a Traders Association.”
