Free, sorry, tree therapy…

Last month we put out a call for help with watering the recently planted trees in Easebourne Park. Even though the recent rain has meant we’ve been saved from this task for several weeks, with temperatures set to rise we will once again been needing to water on at least a weekly basis.

Sadly no-one has so far offered to help with this task, which to date has been carried out by Parish Council volunteers. If you enjoy spending time in the Park and can spare a couple of hours a month, please consider getting in touch and taking a turn, after all, many hands make light work!

To find out more please email Sharon on parishclerk@easebourne.org or message us on the Easebourne Village Facebook page. Thank you.

Sussex Safer Roads Partnership

The Sussex Safer Roads Partnership mobile camera van still visits Easebourne as regularly as is possible, and from the number of offences they record is extremely successful in raising awareness of our 30mph limit. We’d really like to do more though to maintain that awareness when the van can’t be with us. That’s where Community Speedwatch comes in. 

We really need residents who are concerned about speeding in our village to come forward and offer to help tackle this issue. There is a speedgun located in Midhurst Police Station which we can borrow as often as we like, but we need people to operate it! Operating the Speedwatch Gun is really easy and it really does work, with offenders being reported to the Police who then take the appropriate action. The scheme is managed by Chichester Police who have offered to come to the village and talk to residents in more detail about what’s involved and explain how they can help.

If you’d be interested in attending such a session, please get in touch and we will arrange a suitable venue and date. If you would like to improve traffic safety in Easebourne then please consider joining our Community Speedwatch group.

New Toddler play equipment coming soon!

In January this year, the village wide Park survey identified the need for more play equipment in the Park for younger children. With this in mind, the Parish Council has been working with a number of potential equipment providers and has now approved the final design for a new Toddler play area in Easebourne Park! This will feature a number of small towers, bridges, scramble nets and climbing options, surrounded by the same safety surface as the rest of the current equipment.

We will also be installing a ground level, fully accessible roundabout, thanks to an incredibly generous donation from The Boltini Trust.

The current schedule is for this new area to all be installed early July, so it’s ready for the summer holidays! The project has been awarded to local specialist business, Playsafe Playgrounds. Watch this space for more information on it’s progress as the installation begins!

Save our Trees!

Last November we planted a variety of lovely trees and hedging in Easebourne Park, as part of the transformation from a dis-used field into a beautiful green space for the whole community to enjoy.

The trees have settled in well over the winter and you may have noticed that since the beginning of May, volunteers have been watering every last tree and sapling on a weekly basis, to give them the best chance of survival as we approach summer.

We’d like to appeal for some extra help in maintaining this watering regime over the coming months. It’s actually quite a relaxing process and a great opportunity to spend a couple of hours in the Park, appreciating the beautiful surroundings! We always work in pairs, or more if we have the volunteers, so it can also be quite a social event!

So if you love Easebourne Park and want to see our trees survive and thrive for years to come, please consider helping with this important task. If you want to find out more, drop an email to parishclerk@easebourne.org or send us a message on the Easebourne Village Facebook page.

Thank you

Park path complete

The new Fittleworth Stone path was completed in the Park yesterday, along with 4 new bases ready for picnic benches. The path will be compacted again after several weeks to ensure that it binds together and forms a smooth, robust surface.

The picnic benches, made from recycled materials, will be arriving in the Park at the end of the month.

Work in the Park 13th – 17th May 2019

Please be aware that groundwork will be taking place in Easebourne Park next week, between the 13th and 17th May 2019 to upgrade the surface of the perimeter path. After a number of weeks trialling different surfaces, we will be using local Fittleworth Stone for the new surface.

After the recent Parish wide survey where we received a large number of requests for picnic benches, the contractor will also be preparing the surfaces for 4 new picnic benches which will be installed soon after completion. Minimal disruption is expected but please keep clear of the areas where work is taking place. If you have any query please contact the Parish Council by telephone or email, as detailed on the homepage.
