Green volunteer update…

Last Saturday, 7th November, the Green Volunteers worked so hard that they trimmed, raked, swept and tidied the whole of High Path in one session – they worked so fast there wasn’t even time for a photo! (Library pic above!)

This type of volunteer activity is still allowed in Lockdown, so this coming Saturday 14th November there’s a bonus opportunity to get involved in a different part of the village.

Meeting from at 8.30am on the corner of Egmont Road and Easebourne Lane, the team will be trimming and sweeping along the paths, in both directions, as far as they in the time that they have! They finish by 10.30am.

Last weeks effort was down to a great team of volunteers – it proves that more hands really do make light work. So please think about taking your daily exercise early this Saturday and doing something really worthwhile at the same time!

Just bring yourself and some gardening gloves. Everything else is provided.

Join the Midhurst Green Volunteers…

The amazing Midhurst Volunteers are back in Easebourne this coming Saturday, 7th November, once again tackling the infamous High Path! This often used route to Midhurst will be getting a trim, a tidy and a sweep.. and we’d love some extra pairs of hands.

Meeting at the Northern end, at the entrance to the Rother sports field, come along from 8am until around 10am. All equipment provided but please bring your own gloves. The long term forecast is for good weather and the team will be spread along the path, working at appropriate distances from each other.

We’re incredibly lucky that this dedicated team of volunteers, most of whom don’t even live in the village, come back time and time again to make where we live a cleaner, tidier place. Please show them some support and come along to lend a hand.

Could you become a Parish Councillor?

Have you ever thought of becoming a Parish Councillor? If so would you like to find out more about what’s involved and what a difference you can make to your 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. Whether your interest is in Easebourne Park, our highways, local planning decisions or how we manage our finances, there is plenty to get your teeth stuck into!

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 spare time to help make things happen. As a Council we meet 6 times a year (by Zoom at the moment of course) 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 Sharon, our Parish Clerk by emailing parishclerk@easebourne.org

60 bags of green waste!

The Midhurst Green Volunteers and 5 Easebourne villagers worked their socks off this morning, Saturday 17th October and shovelled up over 60 large bags of green waste from the footpath heading north from Budgenor Lodge. An amazing volume of waste when it’s not exactly a relaxing location to be working. It’s scary the speed that people still drive past at when they can see people wearing hi-vis and working right on the side of the road 🙁

The photos show the difference in the width of the path!

The team also strimmed and mowed the grass areas at the Hollist Lane junction and also cleared green waste from the 1st section of High Path. A fantastic team effort by a relatively few people.

It would still be amazing if more villagers could step up and give just a few hours of their time to be part of this important collaboration. Without the help of the Green Volunteers none of this work would be taking place as CDC simply do not have the resources. The same people volunteer week after week so just a few new faces would give those a break and we can still keep up with the work! Come on, it’s fun, active, Covid-secure and gives you a warm fuzzy feeling inside!

The team are out and about every Saturday and Tuesday – check the website for details of where they are or email parishclerk@easebourne.org. Thank you.

Green Volunteers are at it again!

The Midhurst Green Volunteers were in the village again this Saturday, tidying along the bridge between Midhurst and Easebourne and continuing up Dodsley Lane and Easebourne Lane. In particular the overgrown brambles behind the wall near the roundabout received a harsh cut back! We hope you agree it’s a huge improvement!

Remember to keep an eye on their schedule of activity and please feel free to join any of the future sessions, in Midhurst or Easebourne.

Latest Green Volunteers Schedule

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.
