Fencing for Easebourne Park Pond

After responses to the recent Easebourne Park survey, the drainage pond in Easebourne Park will now be fenced. This work will be carried out by a local contractor from 7.30am on Saturday 23rd March 2019 so please be aware of vehicles and people working in the Park during this time.

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.

Friends of Easebourne Park is launched!

Easebourne Park Needs YOU!

Easebourne Parish Council has agreed to the formation of a volunteer organisation to be called the “Friends of Easebourne Park” (FrEP).  This group has been created with 3-fold aims:

  1. To fundraise on behalf of Easebourne Park.
  2. To seek volunteers willing to join FrEP and work to support and develop the Park.
  3. To gather input from local people and representative groups so that the Park may best serve the local community.

All funds raised to be exclusively spent on the Park by FrEP. A FrEP constitution has been created and this requires 4/5 committee members as follows: Chairman; Vice Chairman (to be a EPC councillor); Treasurer, and finally; Secretary/Membership Secretary (could be split). It is really hoped that Easebourne Parishioners will volunteer to fill these committee posts.  The work involved will be slight and the FrEP committee is to meet 4 times a year.

However, if you do not wish to serve on the FrEP committee, but would wish to indicate your support for the Park and would like to be involved in its future development, just join and become a member of FrEP.  Membership is free to all Easebourne Parishioners.

To volunteer for a committee post, see a copy of the FrEP Constitution, or to simply become a member of FrEP, please contact the Parish Clerk on Parishclerk@easebourne.org or call 07342 166 188

Let’s keep developing this wonderful community space and play park together
