A great mention to Easebourne Park in this latest edition of the South Downs News! You can read the whole story on the following link:
Saturday 7th December saw the first joint session with some village volunteers and the Midhurst Green Volunteers coming to help us carry out some serious pruning of High Path.
High Path is prone to getting overgrown in the summer months as CDC reduce the number of times they cut during the year, so as a village we need to step in and carry out additional clearance. Yesterday saw the start of a 2 day project to seriously cut back bushes, trees and shrubs along the length of the path from the Doctors surgery to Dodsley Grove.
In all, 5 Midhurst volunteers and 5 Easebourne volunteers spent 2 hours and took away an estimated 1.88 tonnes of green waste! This is the highest volume of waste shifted in any one of the Green Volunteers sessions to date!
The remainder of the path will undergo the same treatment on Saturday 25th January, meeting at the junction to the Doctors surgery at 8.30am.
Moving forward, The Green Volunteers are happy to help with other Easebourne projects, but as well as us volunteering to help with our own projects, we need volunteers to help with Midhurst projects too – it’s only fair!
The team carries out projects every Tuesday from 9.30 to 11am and every Saturday from 8.30 until 10am. There’s a list of scheduled events on their website. Further sessions in Easebourne will be announced shortly so watch this space and PLEASE help us by joining both volunteer groups to make Easebourne and Midhurst a cleaner and tidier place!
The Parish Council are absolutely delighted to announce that Easebourne Park won a South Downs National Park Design Award this week!
More than 1,200 votes were cast for the People’s Choice Award, which included an online poll for the public’s favourite among 16 shortlisted schemes. The SDNPA were impressed with the fact that the Park is an “impressive mix of play area and habitat creation” and a fine example of the “power of using the National Park for health and well-being purposes”.
So a huge thank you to everyone who took the time to vote for the Park and look out for news of more exciting plans for the next phase of the Park which we hope to be able to share with you very soon.
More news about the awards and other winners can be found on the SDNPA website:
The Midhurst Green Volunteers are a small group of volunteers who help keep excess vegetation at bay around the town. The team work independently of, but in cooperation with, the Midhurst Town Council and Chichester District Council to improve access for people.
The team has lots of equipment to help with weeding, mowing and cutting tasks, thanks to the contribution of local sponsors.
The Parish Council is delighted that the green volunteers have agreed to extend their services to Easebourne BUT we need volunteers to help with the tasks in both Easebourne and Midhurst – things such as keeping High Path clear of brambles and spreading hedgerows, keeping verges trimmed, cleaning bus shelters etc.
The first confirmed date is Saturday 7th December at 8.30am. If anyone can lend a hand for a couple of hours either then or at a future date please contact the Parish Council at firstname.lastname@example.org. You can find out more about the green volunteers by visiting their website www.midhurstgreenvolunteers.org.uk
As we may have already mentioned (!), Easebourne Park has been shortlisted for a South Downs National Park Design Award which we are absolutely thrilled about! Voting is so easy and takes seconds so we’d really appreciate it if you could following this link, vote and share around every single person you know!
Having an award winning Park and Community Space in our small Parish would be amazing and could really help us to attract more funding for future projects.
Thank you !
Many thanks to those of you who have reported some slight damage to the matting around the roundabout. This is being addressed by Playsafe, the original installer and work is expected to take place this Friday, 4th October.
Just a reminder.. please VOTE for Easebourne Park in the South Downs Design Awards!

A big thank you to everyone who joined us at the Picnic in the Park 2019 last Saturday 31st August! The weather didn’t dampen anyone’s spirits (until right at the end!) and it was great to see so many people enjoying the Park and it’s added extras for the day – Dylan’s ice-cream, The White Horse Bar, the Cowdray Tuk-Tuk, live music and the WSCC Fire Service! Thanks also to our wonderful village shop for donating cold drinks and to all those who slaved over the homemade cakes! If anyone would like to get involved in planning for our 2020 event, please get in touch!
