Tree carvings

If you’ve been taking your daily exercise in Easebourne Park recently you may have noticed our tree carvings have started to appear! Local Chainsaw sculptor Nathan Blatherwick is turning the conifer stumps into an impressive corner of carved animals, toadstools and an amazing tree trunk house!

Nathan will be continuing to create his chainsaw masterpieces over the coming weeks.

Easebourne Park remains open in Lockdown

Following the Government announcement last night, Monday 4th January, we have investigated the detailed guidance and can confirm that Easebourne Park and the play equipment can remain accessible during the current Lockdown.

Obviously the rules around meeting others from outside your household must be followed, social distancing should be maintained at all times and if you are using the play equipment please do take the necessary precautions with regards to antibacterial hand gels before and after use.

Rain and rubbish…

We were sent these photos from a resident after a walk around the village last weekend and thought we’d share for anyone who didn’t see the high waters.

Sadly at the same time they sent us a photo of the rubbish left inside and around The Roundhouse. There are plenty of waste bins in the Park, several within yards of The Roundhouse, so if this was your litter please take it with you next time or put it in a bin. Thank you.

Easebourne Park remains open

Even though we are now in Lockdown again, this time around the Government guidelines allow Parks and playgrounds to remain open.

However, social distancing must be adhered too and you must still follow the rules by not meeting up with any more than 1 person from outside of your household, even outside.

Please continue to take extra care when using the play equipment and wash or antibac hands after touching anything and before touching your face.

Thanks to Emma Chapman for the photo.

Scooter track official opening!

The brand new Scooter track in Easebourne Park saw it’s official opening last Thursday, with Jessica Riches, Community Infrastructure Levy Officer for the South Downs National Park Authority cut the ribbon!

The scooter track was 100% funded by the Community Infrastructure Levy awarded to the Parish Council in September last year after a successful bid was submitted in January 2019. This is just one of a string of successful fund raising bids and grant applications made by the Parish Council since the original concept for Easebourne Park was in development.

Also in the photo are Chris Collyer from Playsafe Playgrounds who designed and built the track, and Mike Noble, Chairman of the Parish Council.

A park with a view

Those of you who have recently visited Easebourne Park will have seen that the Parish Council has now had the giant conifers removed from the bottom corner. We hope you agree it has opened up the view beautifully. It’s also created more light for allotment holders closest to that corner of the park.
Local tree surgery experts, Arborlec Services Ltd have done a great job felling the trees and clearing up with minimal damage to the grass surface. Several substantial stumps have been left as we look into commissioning nature sculptures.
Now that this corner of the Park has been opened up we’re looking into creating a “Carbon Corner”. The idea is that any resident wishing to offset their carbon emissions, say due to their flight activity, can donate funds towards the creation of a small orchard, with fruit trees more appropriate to this part of Sussex. Indeed, we’ve already received our first generous donation.   If you want to donate to Carbon Corner please contact the Clerk at parishclerk@easebourne.org.

Scooter track construction begins 29th/30th September

Further to our recent announcement, we can now confirm that construction of the Scooter track in Easebourne Park is scheduled to begin this week, on Tuesday 29th or Wednesday 30th September. It’s expected to take just 1 week, although the schedule could be subject to change if the weather turns.
As well as being a fun place to play for the under 12’s, the track will also have educational road markings. It will be made with a green slip-proof surface in tarmac for durability. The multi-route design will have a few gentle undulations and a mini roundabout for interest.
A local business, Playsafe Playgrounds, who have created much of the Parks current play equipment will be carrying out the work.
We expect disruption will be minimal, but please be aware that vehicles and equipment will be accessing the Park over this time and keep clear of the area where the work is taking place. The contractor will be avoiding any vehicle movements to and from the Park during school drop off and collection times.
If you have any queries please contact our Parish Clerk on parishclerk@easebourne.org

Green light for under 12’s scooter track in Easebourne Park

We’re delighted that approval has been given for a scooter track alongside the path between the play area and the Pond. We expect construction to take place during October.
As well as being a fun place to play for the under 12’s, the track will also have educational road markings. It will be made with a green slip-proof surface in tarmac for durability. The multi-route design will have a few gentle undulations and a mini roundabout for interest.
A local business, Playsafe Playgrounds, has been contracted to do the work.
When we designed Easebourne Park it was always the intention of the Parish Council to have a scooter track. Only now have we had the funding thanks to a Community Infrastructure Levy grant (CIL funding) from South Downs National Park Authority.
We look forward to sharing photographs in due course; in the meantime, take a look at the design images. We hope you agree it will be a fantastic addition to the play park.

Tree felling in Easebourne Park Monday 21st September

The big feral conifers at the far corner of Easebourne Park, separating the park from the cemetery and the allotments, are being felled and removed week commencing 21 September. This long-planned work has been coordinated with the County Council, South Downs National Park, Cowdray, St Mary’s Church and the allotment authorities. It will open up the vista and create more light for Park users, Birthday House residents and many allotment holders.
We’re hoping to have several of the larger stumps left 10 feet above the ground for future carving. In time, the conifers will be replaced with native trees, plans for which we will share in future.
The park and play area will continue to be open for people to use away from the area of works. The contractors will be on site for a week.
