The Toddler Towers are open!

We’re delighted to announce that the latest addition to Easebourne Park, Toddler Towers, is now open! Designed specifically for 2-4 year olds, the Towers were created specifically for us by local experts Playsafe Playgrounds. The need for some equipment in the Park for younger children was something that came out of the Parish survey earlier this year and so we’re thrilled to have been able to now install the Towers and the roundabout. Neither could have been achieved without the help of grants from Chichester District Council and The Boltini Trust.

The Toddler Towers will be officially opened at the Picnic in the Park on the 31st August, but from today feel free to check them out!

Report of defibrillator being interfered with during the weekend (27th/28th July 2019)

Our defibrillator in the telephone box in Dodsley Lane was tampered with during the weekend.  It was not damaged, but it is very sad to think that someone would do this to such a vital piece of equipment.

The Parish Council would like to thank the residents who reported the matter to the Parish Clerk (07342 166188) and can reassure residents that the matter was attended to within five minutes of the initial report.  Residents are our eyes and ears in the Parish so please report any such matters to our Clerk as soon as possible.

If residents witness anyone interfering with a defibrillator which does not appear to be for the purposes of an emergency, or have any information as to who was responsible for this activity at the weekend, please call the police on 101.

Thank you

Here it is – our fabulous new roundabout!

Please say a big hello to the latest piece of equipment to be installed at Easebourne Park – our new, fully accessible roundabout! When we carried out the Parish wide survey in January this year, a roundabout was a popular suggestion as to what residents would like to see in the future.

We have been extremely lucky to receive a 2nd grant from The Boltini Trust, a local organisation who have already helped with the first phase of the Park and the roundabout is now a reality!

Climbing Towers update – work is progressing well on the toddler climbing towers and we expect to have this handed over to us on Wednesday 31st July!

Current Easebourne Park Installation

The current installation of the new toddler climbing area and roundabout is progressing well but is taking a little longer than anticipated. The roundabout is due to be available from this Thursday 25th and the climbing area from Wednesday 31st July. We’re working closely with the contractor to minimise these delays and we’ll do all we can to get them finished sooner.

Please accept our apologies but we’re sure both of the new areas will be worth the wait!

Wild flowers and watering…

In case you’ve not noticed, Easebourne Park is looking very pretty at the moment with it’s carpet of wild flowers! Our trees are surviving this latest warm spell but we’re still in need of extra pairs of hands to help with our watering task.

Sadly, out of the entire village, only 1 person has volunteered since our last call for help. So we’re now trying to co-ordinate small groups of people who can take shorter turns in watering, so even if you only have 30 mins to spare one evening, it will still be possible to help share the workload. If this could work for you, please do get in touch with Sharon, our Parish Clerk on parishclerk@easebourne.org. Thank you.

Installation minus 12 days…

Update 12th July 2019 – please note that since our original post there has been a slightly delay to the start date for this installation, which will now be the 17th July.

Last month we told you the exciting news that a new toddler play area had been confirmed for Easebourne Park, along with a fully accessible roundabout.

We’ve now had installation dates confirmed and we’re only 12 days away from the start of this fantastic new phase for the Park! Installation will begin on the 15th July and is scheduled to take just 1 week, during which time the area near to the toddler swings will be fenced off. The rest of the park will remain open but please be aware that there will be some disturbance and vehicle movements during the days. Our local contractor, Playsafe Playgrounds will ensure that deliveries to the site take place outside of school drop off and pick up times so as not to cause problems in the car park.

We hope you’re as excited as we are about this new addition!

Free, sorry, tree therapy…

Last month we put out a call for help with watering the recently planted trees in Easebourne Park. Even though the recent rain has meant we’ve been saved from this task for several weeks, with temperatures set to rise we will once again been needing to water on at least a weekly basis.

Sadly no-one has so far offered to help with this task, which to date has been carried out by Parish Council volunteers. If you enjoy spending time in the Park and can spare a couple of hours a month, please consider getting in touch and taking a turn, after all, many hands make light work!

To find out more please email Sharon on parishclerk@easebourne.org or message us on the Easebourne Village Facebook page. Thank you.
