Brief

Our aim is to communicate with all residents within Easebourne parish and to be as transparent as possible. Our primary communication method is still our public Parish Council meetings held every other month and our Annual Parish meeting.

Given the significant number of changes taking place within the Parish we rely heavily on this website to assist in providing you with updates from our meetings and projects. News stories and updates will also be shared through our Facebook page. Please do follow us on Facebook and share updates with your friends and family to help keep Easebourne Parish updated.

We will continue to utilise our notice boards around Easebourne and Henley village for significant updates, updates in the United parish magazine, along with door drops when necessary to reach out to everyone in the Parish.

If you would like to ask your Parish Council anything please feel free to attend one of our meetings, or contact the Parish Clerk via email, post or phone. Details can be found on our Contact Us page. Please bear in mind that our Clerk works 13 hours a week and so there maybe a delay in receiving a reply.

New year, new challenge?

It’s that time of year when you might start thinking about doing something new, taking on a new challenge or getting involved in a local activity. One way you could tick ALL of those boxes is to become a Parish Councillor!

Your Parish Council has space for 2 new Councillors to get involved in all aspects of our work within the Parish. From Planning consultations to Highways management, Easebourne Park enhancements to Communications and from Finance to Footpaths. There are also a number of strategic projects you could get involved in if that’s your thing.

You don’t need previous Councillor experience and there are no specific qualifications. Full training is available but most of all you should have a passion for your community and a willingness to get involved.

As a full Council we meet 6 times a year and with specific committee and panel meetings in between, depending on what areas you get involved in.

If you’re interested to learn more, please get in touch with Sharon, our Parish Clerk on parishclerk@easebourne.org to arrange an informal chat over a coffee!

Parish Newsletter now available

Many of you will have received the latest Parish Newsletter through your door in the last few days, summarising the highlights of 2019 and what the Parish Council will be working on in 2020. We’ll be hand delivering to the remaining part of the Parish over the next few days and copies will also be available after the weekend from the Village Shop, the schools, the Church and within the Park.

If you haven’t received a copy and can’t pick one up in the above locations, please get in touch with our Parish Clerk and we can put one in the post.

High Path pruning!

Saturday 7th December saw the first joint session with some village volunteers and the Midhurst Green Volunteers coming to help us carry out some serious pruning of High Path.

High Path is prone to getting overgrown in the summer months as CDC reduce the number of times they cut during the year, so as a village we need to step in and carry out additional clearance. Yesterday saw the start of a 2 day project to seriously cut back bushes, trees and shrubs along the length of the path from the Doctors surgery to Dodsley Grove.

In all, 5 Midhurst volunteers and 5 Easebourne volunteers spent 2 hours and took away an estimated 1.88 tonnes of green waste! This is the highest volume of waste shifted in any one of the Green Volunteers sessions to date!

The remainder of the path will undergo the same treatment on Saturday 25th January, meeting at the junction to the Doctors surgery at 8.30am.

Moving forward, The Green Volunteers are happy to help with other Easebourne projects, but as well as us volunteering to help with our own projects, we need volunteers to help with Midhurst projects too – it’s only fair!

The team carries out projects every Tuesday from 9.30 to 11am and every Saturday from 8.30 until 10am. There’s a list of scheduled events on their website. Further sessions in Easebourne will be announced shortly so watch this space and PLEASE help us by joining both volunteer groups to make Easebourne and Midhurst a cleaner and tidier place!

Midhurst Green Volunteers come to Easebourne!

The Midhurst Green Volunteers are a small group of volunteers who help keep excess vegetation at bay around the town. The team work independently of, but in cooperation with, the Midhurst Town Council and Chichester District Council to improve access for people.

The team has lots of equipment to help with weeding, mowing and cutting tasks, thanks to the contribution of local sponsors.

The Parish Council is delighted that the green volunteers have agreed to extend their services to Easebourne BUT we need volunteers to help with the tasks in both Easebourne and Midhurst – things such as keeping High Path clear of brambles and spreading hedgerows, keeping verges trimmed, cleaning bus shelters etc.

The first confirmed date is Saturday 7th December at 8.30am. If anyone can lend a hand for a couple of hours either then or at a future date please contact the Parish Council at parishclerk@easebourne.org. You can find out more about the green volunteers by visiting their website www.midhurstgreenvolunteers.org.uk

Please VOTE for Easebourne Park!

As we may have already mentioned (!), Easebourne Park has been shortlisted for a South Downs National Park Design Award which we are absolutely thrilled about! Voting is so easy and takes seconds so we’d really appreciate it if you could following this link, vote and share around every single person you know!

Having an award winning Park and Community Space in our small Parish would be amazing and could really help us to attract more funding for future projects.

Here’s the link – https://www.southdowns.gov.uk/planning/south-downs-national-park-design-award/peoples-choice-2019/

Thank you !
