The latest schedule for the Midhurst Green volunteers is now available, showing dates and locations until the end of the year. There are lots of dates programmed in for Easebourne so please show your support and join some of these sessions to help smarten up YOUR Parish.
The team are a friendly bunch, all equipment is provided, social distancing is adhered to and all you need to do is bring your own gardening gloves!
Yesterday, Saturday 12th Sept we managed to increase our village volunteers from 2 to 3 – a great effort – but we were still seriously outnumbered by Midhurst volunteers, with an amazing 8 residents turning out to help US. Please consider joining this important work in our Parish, or if you can’t help, please spread the word and do your bit to encourage those who can.
The Green Volunteers are in the village again this coming Saturday, 12th September, this time to work along the upper stretch of High Path, between Hollist Lane and Dodsley Grove.
Last week along the A272 we only saw 2 village volunteers join the fun, which was really disappointing and doesn’t bode well for the future of this incredibly valuable collaboration. Without more help from within the village we can’t guarantee that more Easebourne dates will be added to the busy Green Volunteers schedule.
PLEASE consider joining this group of friendly volunteers who really make a difference to our Parish. It’s light work, for no more than 2 hours, on a Saturday or a Tuesday, somewhere in Midhurst or Easebourne – the full schedule is always on the Midhurst Green Volunteers Website. All tools are provided, just bring along some gloves and if you’re lucky free drinks and cakes are available at the end of the task!
So this Saturday, let’s show how much we care about our village and support this amazing team of volunteers! Meet at the end of Hollist Lane at the top of High Path from 8am! Spread the word!
The Midhurst Green Volunteers will be back in Easebourne for the next 2 Saturdays, the 1st August and the 8th August.
Working along Wheelbarrow Castle, the team will be cutting back overgrown vegetation and clearing paths and would be extremely grateful for some extra pairs of hands.
Meet at the top of Wheelbarrow Castle from 8.30am, all tools are providing but please bring your own garden gloves. The team usually finish by 10.30am and you’re welcome to join us then for a celebratory muffin! It really is a fun way to start your weekend, by joining this fun team and giving something back to your community.
If you ‘d like any further details please contact Sharon, our Parish Clerk or email@example.com.
Have you ever thought of becoming a Parish Councillor? Do you want to find out what’s involved and what a difference you can make to your local community?
We have several vacancies on the Council and lots of opportunities for the right person to get involved in some exciting ongoing projects and to help shape the future of the Parish.
You don’t need to have any specific experience in a similar role. It’s more important to be passionate about your community, have a willingness to get involved and have a few spare hours a month to help make things happen. As a Council we meet 6 times a year (although not face to face at present) and then depending on what areas you get involved in there would be other project or committee specific meetings in between.
Being a Councillor really isn’t anything like you might expect. It’s not like The Vicar of Dibley 😉 If you’d like to find out more and have a chat about what’s involved, in the first instance please get in touch with our Parish Clerk by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org
