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.

Park path update

After a few weeks of use and varied weather conditions, we are continuing to evaluate the trial path surfaces and will shortly be adding a 4th option. A huge thank you to everyone who pledged their support for the project via the Crowdfunding campaign. With the funding in place we hope to be in a position to agree the preferred material and appoint a contractor later this month.

Park Pond Fence completed!

The pond fence has now been fitted with stock wire and a locked gate. A key is being held at the School reception and also by the Parish Council, should anyone require access. A big thank you to local contractor W L West & Sons for a great job!

Fencing for Easebourne Park Pond Update

You may have noticed that the fence and gate were erected around the pond as planned last Saturday 23rd March, however the stock-wiring to be attached to the inside of the fence was slightly too tall, so this has been re-ordered by the contractor and will now be installed on Monday 1st April. If you have any query please contact our Parish Clerk, details on the homepage.

Path Surfacing Trial

As you may have noticed, the Parish Council are now in the process of trialing different types of path surface to make the circular path more accessible for all visitors to the Park. We will closely monitor these sections over the coming weeks and if sufficient funding is secured we will hopefully be in a position to carry out the work before the summer. If you can help with our Crowdfunding Campaign, please visit www.spacehive.com and search for Easebourne Park.

New handrail installed

Darren Rolfe from West Sussex County Council along with 2 of his volunteer team have today installed a very sturdy handrail alongside the recently construction steps leading from the car park to the Park. A massive thank you to Darren and the team for helping us with another project for the Park! Darren and the team will be building a brand new bus shelter on the A286 opposite Kings Drive for us next week.

Work taking place in Easebourne Park

Various works will be taking place in Easebourne Park over the next few days. On Wednesday 27th a team of volunteers from West Sussex County Council will be installing a handrail for us alongside the recently created steps, leading from the car park to the Park, close to the slide.

Then on Friday 1st March work will be taking place around the drainage pond in Easebourne Park to prepare it for the perimeter planting. At the same time a team of volunteers will be planting an additional 200 wild heathers in the 2 borders close to the bottom of the main footpath slope. If you have time on Friday to help with the planting, please get in touch with our Parish Clerk!

Finally, we will be trialling alternative types of stone on 2 short lengths of the path as part of our process to evaluate a longer term surface that will hopefully then be installed if our Crowdfunding campaign is successful. With only just over a month to go on the campaign, we really need you help to make the path upgrade a reality – details of how you can pledge are on the link above.
