Roundabout safety matting has been repaired :-)

Our roundabout has been so much loved and used, the ground surrounding it had sunk a little which had caused a small issue with the safety matting.  This has now all been repaired, so please feel free whizz around as much as you like.

Report of defibrillator being interfered with during the weekend (27th/28th July 2019)

Our defibrillator in the telephone box in Dodsley Lane was tampered with during the weekend.  It was not damaged, but it is very sad to think that someone would do this to such a vital piece of equipment.

The Parish Council would like to thank the residents who reported the matter to the Parish Clerk (07342 166188) and can reassure residents that the matter was attended to within five minutes of the initial report.  Residents are our eyes and ears in the Parish so please report any such matters to our Clerk as soon as possible.

If residents witness anyone interfering with a defibrillator which does not appear to be for the purposes of an emergency, or have any information as to who was responsible for this activity at the weekend, please call the police on 101.

Thank you

Here it is – our fabulous new roundabout!

Please say a big hello to the latest piece of equipment to be installed at Easebourne Park – our new, fully accessible roundabout! When we carried out the Parish wide survey in January this year, a roundabout was a popular suggestion as to what residents would like to see in the future.

We have been extremely lucky to receive a 2nd grant from The Boltini Trust, a local organisation who have already helped with the first phase of the Park and the roundabout is now a reality!

Climbing Towers update – work is progressing well on the toddler climbing towers and we expect to have this handed over to us on Wednesday 31st July!
