Tiered Seating in the Park complete

As many may already have seen, the construction of tiered seating facing The Roundhouse in Easebourne Park has now been completed and is available for use!

We hope you like the end result – offering a large amount of extra seating within the Park and commanding a great view too! It will be a great addition for the Fete in the Park on the 7th  July where we have live music in The Roundhouse and for any future performances.

If you have any suggestions for future activities in The Roundhouse please get in touch with Parishclerk@easebourne.org

Big thank you to local company ACS Limited for completing the project and doing such a fantastic job!

Donations for Easebourne Park

Did you know you can now very easily make a small donation for the maintenance and future development of our award-winning village Park?

We know how much Easebourne Park is loved and enjoyed by people, with it’s open space, play equipment, stunning Roundhouse and now it’s award-winning eco loos. But what you might not appreciate is how much the Park now costs to keep it looking it’s best.

We budget for essential costs and collect our annual precept from Chichester District Council, but any extra funds that we can raise will mean we can do even more things and create an even better environment for our residents.

If you enjoy visiting the Park and feel like making a small extra donation for its upkeep, you can do so online or by scanning the QR code that will soon be appearing at the entrances to the Park.

Further Vandalism to Eco Loo in Easebourne Park

It’s depressing to report that last night, Friday 21st July, the Eco Loo in the Park was the scene of further vandalism.

Between 7pm and 9.30pm two youths were observed arriving in the Park by bike, one red mountain bike, one black mountain bike, each with black rucksacks. They were seen disappearing around the back of the Eco Loo, where this morning one of the windows was found to have been pushed in and the guttering damaged. They were later observed meeting a small white VW car in the carpark, without their rucksacks, returning to the rear of the Loos and then leaving the park by bike without their rucksacks before returning again, collecting their rucksacks and leaving.
Clear images of all this, including the car were captured by the CCTV and have been submitted to the Police for investigation and potential prosecution.
We have quickly replaced the window so the loo can be opened, as the left hand loo remains closed after the previous damage.
It’s incredibly sad that we have seen a string of vandalism in the Park in recent weeks after so long without this antisocial behaviour. Our CCTV system monitors the Park 24/7 and we will always share evidence of vandalism and suspicious activity with the Police. Antisocial behaviour and vandalism takes up valuable time for the Parish Council and costs money that would be far better spent elsewhere. As well as the cost of repairs, we are now stepping up our contracted security patrols as well as asking the Police to carry out adhoc visits.
If you think you might know who these vandals are or have any information that might help the Police, please contact them directly or share in confidence with us by emailing parishclerk@easebourne.org

Vandalism in Easebourne Park

We are extremely sad to see that the Roundhouse has suffered a fresh round of vandalism in the last few weeks, the most recent being yesterday. Each time the damage has occurred to the inside of the roof structure, by the use of a ball, stick or bat being hit hard again the wooden planks to dislodge and damage them. This is a costly and tricky thing to repair, funds that ultimately could be far better used elsewhere.
The latest incident was yesterday, Wednesday 5th July at approximately 17.50 when 3 young males were caught by the CCTV cycling inside the Roundhouse and then aggressively kicking a ball at the roof, resulting in the damage shown on the picture above.
They were also then recorded acting very suspiciously in and around the new Eco Toilets, although no damage has been discovered.
This incident has been reported to the Police and we will supply the CCTV footage as evidence.
If you have any information that might help the Police please contact them directly or share in confidence with us by emailing parishclerk@easebourne.org
It’s been a long time since we’ve seen this sort of behaviour in the Park and we’re very much hoping this is an isolated incident, but we will progress this and any subsequent incidents with the authorities and we continue to review CCTV images on a daily basis.
