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.

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.
