The big day is almost here, with construction beginning on our Community Shelter within Easebourne Park, tomorrow, Monday 9th March! Despite the rather soggy ground conditions, it’s full steam ahead and the build is expected to take just 5 weeks.

Deliveries to site will all be made outside of the busy school drop-off and pick-up times. However, as with any project, there could be times when additional activity is taking place in the Park and we would ask for your patience whilst we build this exciting new addition for the community!

After construction of the shelter, an extension to the perimeter path will be added around the shelter and at the same time 2 additional picnic benches are being installed. We’re also planting a number of very mature trees which will hope will give a little instant shade this summer. Other additions in the coming weeks will include a traditional see-saw, a large community noticeboard and a BBQ area!

All of these additions have been made possible after our successful bids for funding from Chichester District Council, The Grange Community Association, The National Lottery and the South Downs National Park Community Infrastructure Levy.
