12th, 13th & 14th Nov Easebourne Park Volunteer Planting Event!

Planting to Enhance Easebourne Park

The first planting session which took place on the first 3 days of October was very successful.  Adult volunteers from the Allotment and Garden Society, the local community, children from Conifers and Easebourne C.E. Primary School, the Rainbows and Brownies planted 1,000 bluebell bulbs and hundreds of wild flower plugs and seeds.  Over 90 children helped in this planting session and we were so grateful for their help.
 
The next opportunity to get involved is week beginning 12th November when we will be planting hundreds of heathers, hedgerow saplings and trees.

You don’t need to be green fingered to help us with the next phase of the Park, which is due to begin early next month.  You can choose to help for a few hours in the morning or afternoon, for the whole day or even more days if you are free!

Session 2: Week beginning 12th November 2018  (Monday 12th, Tuesday 13th and Wednesday 14th)

This session will require more heavy digging:

  • A mass of heather planting along the bank
  • Tree and hedge planting

Please bring a trowel and a spade and wear some sturdy shoes/boots, and gardening gloves if you have them.

Instruction and a safety briefing will be given prior the planting session by Lawrence of Wildwood.

If you are keen to help us with this next phase of Easebourne Park, please ‘sign up’ as soon as possible by emailing Sharon the Parish Clerk, on parishclerk@easebourne.org

We need you!

Easebourne Park is open!

Saturday 1st September saw the official opening of Easebourne Park! After years in the planning and 3 months of building, our brand new, innovative play park and community space is open to all and we were thrilled that so many people from the village and further afield came along to enjoy it!

After a few words from the Parish Council and the Heads of our Village Schools, the ribbon was cut by 2 pupils and the fun began. The sun shone, there were free cakes, cold drinks and goody bags for the kids. Children explored the Wildwood Dens created by oak donated from the Cowdray Estate and gave the swings, zip wire, slide and tramolines a thorough test too! All this with live music from local trio Yukon Bass, ice creams from the team at Fitzcanes and free face painting!

The final stages of Phase 1 for the Park will take place in October and November, with the planting of heathers, wild flower seeds, bulbs, a new hedgerow and trees. We’d love as many villagers as possible to get involved in these planting events so if you can spare a few hours or a few days, please get in touch with us. We’ve also got several more volunteer projects in September to improve the footpath access onto Wheelbarrow Castle and to add some new steps into the Park from the school car park. If you can help with either of these projects please also get in touch for more details, check the Volunteering page on this site or on the Easebourne Village Facebook page.

Easebourne Park is nearing completion!

Well, we are nearly there now.  Rubbish bins bases are being secured into the ground. The Park benches have been cleaned ready for fitting into the concrete bases. And, excitingly, the new Easebourne Park signs are ready to be fitted. Finally, the Park meandering path is nearing completion.  The official health and safety inspection is on Monday 20 August. Fingers crossed we are given a clean bill of health in time for the official opening on 1 September, where pupils from our 2 Parish schools will cut the ribbon.”

The Wildwood trails and dens are complete – and magnificent they look as well. The carvings submitted by pupils of the two parish primary schools have been cut into the wood and add a essential touch of local interest. Playsafe Playgrounds are on site and cracking-on with their work on the surface trampolines, slide, zip-wire and 3 sets of swings.
Once the site passes an inspection by a Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents official, we will be open for business.
The official opening is 1st September 2018 at 1.00pm – look out for your invitation soon.
