Easebourne Park Crowdfunding Initiative Launched!

A new Crowdfunding initiative for Easebourne Park has been launched to raise funds to upgrade the paths around the Park enabling easier access to all areas for buggies, cycles and wheelchairs. Combined with an existing volunteering project to improve access on foot from the eastern Wheelbarrow Castle entrance, this initiative will help provide a much safer way to access the Primary School on foot. 

During phase 1 of Easebourne Park, the paths were constructed in such a way that upgrading would be possible once sufficient funds were available. Since it’s completion in September 2018 the Park has proved to be a great success with large numbers of the community using it ever since.

Crowdfunding is the new way in which we as a Parish Council can try to access funds from the West Sussex County Council Community Initiative Fund. Projects must show that they have community buy-in in the form of likes, comments and most importantly, pledges to our crowdfunding campaign. This is why we are seeking as many pledges as possible (from as little as £2 upwards) from individuals and businesses within the Parish and surrounding areas to show that this project has the backing and support of the local community. 

You can make a pledge to our project by following this link: www.spacehive.com/easebourne-park-inclusive-access-project and clicking ‘Back this project’. The more pledges we receive, the more likely we will be to secure additional funding from West Sussex County Council. If you’re not familiar with the concept of Crowdfunding, your pledge will only be claimed as and when we reach our fundraising target! So please help us achieve this key element of Phase 2 of Easebourne Park by pledging just £2 (or more!) and spreading the word among your friends, families, neighbours and colleagues. Thank you!

Easebourne Park Questionnaire

Everyone in the Parish should now have received a copy of our short questionnaire asking for your views on Easebourne Park. We’d really appreciate it if you can take just a couple of minutes to let us know what you think about Phase 1 and what if anything you would like to see added in Phase 2.

The questionnaire can be completed online by going to www.surveymonkey.co.uk/r/23YK8NJ or the paper copy can be returned by dropping into the temporary Parish Council postboxes located in the village shop, Easebourne Primary school, Conifers school or the Church.

We’ll share the results with everyone during February!

Bus Shelter Opposite Kings Drive

As you may have noticed, the bus shelter opposite Kings Drive is in the process of being re-built after it was found to be in need of significant repair. This is being undertaken largely as a volunteer project, co-ordinated with Darren Rolfe and his volunteer team from West Sussex County Council, with the financial assistance of City and Country.

The shelter is due to be completed at the end of February/beginning of March.

Thank You Tesco

Easebourne Parish Council have received £2,000 from Tesco’s ‘Bags of Help’ community fund, which will be used to further enhance Easebourne Park.  

This is the first ‘over-sized’ cheque ever presented to the Parish Council, which is very exciting.  So, a big thank you to Tesco and all those customers who voted with those little blue tokens for Easebourne Park to receive some funds, and to Anita from the Tesco Community Team who handed the cheque to Parish Councillor Ian Milne today.

Councillor Tony Dignum, Leader of Chichester District Council, says: “We’re delighted that the free Park and Ride service is returning for Christmas 2018. It has proved to be very popular in the past and we hope that this year will be no different.

“If you’ve used the service before you will know the benefits of parking at the Park and Ride facility at Chichester College and then continuing the rest of your journey into the city centre by public transport.

“Chichester is a popular shopping destination at Christmas so the Park and Ride service provides residents and visitors with a more convenient and less stressful alternative to using their car. With a dedicated bus every 15 minutes, shoppers and families can benefit from a quick and reliable journey avoiding congestion. An increase in visitors to the city centre also provides a welcome boost for traders in the run-up to Christmas.”
