The Midhurst Green Volunteers are back in the village tomorrow, Saturday 4th September, meeting from 8am at the corner of Hollist Lane near Canada Grove and working on the footpath that starts at the top of Upperfield. If you join a little later then please go straight to the footpath! The session is usually finished by 10.30.
Last week the lack of volunteers from the village was really disappointing and it’s meant that unless we up our game and join in with this amazing group then we are unlikely to see as many, if any, sessions in Easebourne after the current schedule ends in December.
This would be a massive blow to the appearance of the village, as the volunteers keep areas including High Path, Easebourne Lane, Dodsley Lane, Wheelbarrow Castle and many more areas in-between looking as smart as possible. This is all work that would not be carried out by Chichester District Council as funding and staff cuts do not allow.
If you can spare a few hours to help ensure your village carries on looking it’s best, please come along and join in. All equipment is provided, just bring your own gloves!
For more information please visit www.midhurstgreenvolunteers.org.uk or email our parish clerk.
The Green Volunteers will return to the village this coming Saturday, 20th February to carry out a tidy up of the upper section of High Path.
They have been taking a break during the current lockdown but keeping a very close eye on the local stats and feel that the time is right to start their sessions again. The Government advice for the current lockdown didn’t actually prevent Volunteer Groups from continuing their work, but it was felt that taking some time off was the responsible thing to do.
As always, volunteers will be given tasks that enable social distancing to be followed, please bring your own gloves but all other equipment will be provided. For this first session of 2021 we will be meeting on the corner of Hollist Lane and Crossways, from 8.30am on Saturday. The session will usually finish by 10.30am.
Please come along and lend a hand if you can.. many hands make light work!
