United Easebourne Magazine – Editor wanted

United Easebourne Magazine are looking for a new Editor to take over the role of pulling together this community focussed magazine from July 2023 onwards.

Tina and Gavin, the current editors have been doing the role as volunteers for the last 7 years but feel it’s time for someone else to take on the challenge! It’s a very rewarding role, sharing news and stories about what’s happening in our community, its people and its businesses.

Tina tells us it takes around 3 days in a month, split over the month of course and is all done from home. It doesn’t have to be done by one person, so maybe it’s something you think you could share with someone? If being an editor or roving reporter is something you’ve always fancied having a go at then maybe this is your opportunity!

To find out more and to have a chat about what’s involved, please get in touch with us by email or phone.

Picnic in the Park success

2022’s Picnic in the Park took place last Saturday and was deemed to be another successful free event for the village.

We were treated to live music from Baby Eleanor and Yukon Bass, teas and coffees by the Church, delicious cakes and bakes from Pinders Patisserie, ice-creams from Deluca’s, Facepainting by the Guides, our Friends of Easebourne Parish, the school PTA, fundraising by the Parish Council and the Scouts.

The weather held out and several hundred parishioners enjoyed a relaxing afternoon. A big thank you to everyone who joined us!

Onto planning now for 2023!

Midhurst Green Volunteers are BACK!

The Midhurst Green Volunteer team are back in the village for the next TWO Saturdays, the 6th and the 13th August, working their way along the length of Wheelbarrow Castle, trimming verges, cutting back the undergrowth, edging, sweeping and tidying!

They meet from 8am and the tasks are usually finished by 10am. Everything is provided, you just need to bring yourself and if you have them a pair of gloves!

Today they were working their magic at St Ann’s Hill – a lot was achieved with only a handful of helpers. As well as strimming, mowing, raking and sweeping, today saw a very large bag full of rubbish including a lot of empty bottles and even a laptop battery collected from just around the Hill 🙁

More help is always appreciated so please have a look at your diaries and pop along to show your support on these dates if you can. Believe it or not it’s good fun and a very productive way to start your weekend!
