Wheelbarrow Castle Field

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.

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.
