Four legged friends in Easebourne Park

As the Park gets busier during the summer holidays, please remember to keep your dog on a lead near the play equipment, especially in the areas designed for our younger visitors.

Dogs can obviously be quite scary for small children so please bear this in mind and if you’re walking your dog and the Park is busy, please consider keeping your dog on a lead. Thank you.

The Toddler Towers are open!

We’re delighted to announce that the latest addition to Easebourne Park, Toddler Towers, is now open! Designed specifically for 2-4 year olds, the Towers were created specifically for us by local experts Playsafe Playgrounds. The need for some equipment in the Park for younger children was something that came out of the Parish survey earlier this year and so we’re thrilled to have been able to now install the Towers and the roundabout. Neither could have been achieved without the help of grants from Chichester District Council and The Boltini Trust.

The Toddler Towers will be officially opened at the Picnic in the Park on the 31st August, but from today feel free to check them out!

Current Easebourne Park Installation

The current installation of the new toddler climbing area and roundabout is progressing well but is taking a little longer than anticipated. The roundabout is due to be available from this Thursday 25th and the climbing area from Wednesday 31st July. We’re working closely with the contractor to minimise these delays and we’ll do all we can to get them finished sooner.

Please accept our apologies but we’re sure both of the new areas will be worth the wait!

Midhurst Vision…

Midhurst Vision has been launched to find out what we all think about Midhurst, what’s good, what’s bad and what you would like to see happen in the future. It’s being supported by local groups and Chichester District Council and being led by an independent organisation who specialist in bringing communities together.

The survey takes just a few minutes and can be found by going to www.midhurstvision.org.

Wild flowers and watering…

In case you’ve not noticed, Easebourne Park is looking very pretty at the moment with it’s carpet of wild flowers! Our trees are surviving this latest warm spell but we’re still in need of extra pairs of hands to help with our watering task.

Sadly, out of the entire village, only 1 person has volunteered since our last call for help. So we’re now trying to co-ordinate small groups of people who can take shorter turns in watering, so even if you only have 30 mins to spare one evening, it will still be possible to help share the workload. If this could work for you, please do get in touch with Sharon, our Parish Clerk on parishclerk@easebourne.org. Thank you.

Installation minus 12 days…

Update 12th July 2019 – please note that since our original post there has been a slightly delay to the start date for this installation, which will now be the 17th July.

Last month we told you the exciting news that a new toddler play area had been confirmed for Easebourne Park, along with a fully accessible roundabout.

We’ve now had installation dates confirmed and we’re only 12 days away from the start of this fantastic new phase for the Park! Installation will begin on the 15th July and is scheduled to take just 1 week, during which time the area near to the toddler swings will be fenced off. The rest of the park will remain open but please be aware that there will be some disturbance and vehicle movements during the days. Our local contractor, Playsafe Playgrounds will ensure that deliveries to the site take place outside of school drop off and pick up times so as not to cause problems in the car park.

We hope you’re as excited as we are about this new addition!

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!
