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 mail 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.

Parish Newsletter now being distributed

The first Parish newsletter of the year is now being distributed and we thought it was a good opportunity to review everything that has happened in the last year together with highlighting what we will focus on in 2019. We hope you find it informative and a useful summary of the activities of your Parish Council. If you have any comments then we’re always happy to hear them!

Easebourne Park Crowdfunding Initiative Launched!

A new Crowdfunding initiative for Easebourne Park has been launched to raise funds to upgrade the paths around the Park enabling easier access to all areas for buggies, cycles and wheelchairs. Combined with an existing volunteering project to improve access on foot from the eastern Wheelbarrow Castle entrance, this initiative will help provide a much safer way to access the Primary School on foot. 

During phase 1 of Easebourne Park, the paths were constructed in such a way that upgrading would be possible once sufficient funds were available. Since it’s completion in September 2018 the Park has proved to be a great success with large numbers of the community using it ever since.

Crowdfunding is the new way in which we as a Parish Council can try to access funds from the West Sussex County Council Community Initiative Fund. Projects must show that they have community buy-in in the form of likes, comments and most importantly, pledges to our crowdfunding campaign. This is why we are seeking as many pledges as possible (from as little as £2 upwards) from individuals and businesses within the Parish and surrounding areas to show that this project has the backing and support of the local community. 

You can make a pledge to our project by following this link: www.spacehive.com/easebourne-park-inclusive-access-project and clicking ‘Back this project’. The more pledges we receive, the more likely we will be to secure additional funding from West Sussex County Council. If you’re not familiar with the concept of Crowdfunding, your pledge will only be claimed as and when we reach our fundraising target! So please help us achieve this key element of Phase 2 of Easebourne Park by pledging just £2 (or more!) and spreading the word among your friends, families, neighbours and colleagues. Thank you!

Easebourne Park Questionnaire

Everyone in the Parish should now have received a copy of our short questionnaire asking for your views on Easebourne Park. We’d really appreciate it if you can take just a couple of minutes to let us know what you think about Phase 1 and what if anything you would like to see added in Phase 2.

The questionnaire can be completed online by going to www.surveymonkey.co.uk/r/23YK8NJ or the paper copy can be returned by dropping into the temporary Parish Council postboxes located in the village shop, Easebourne Primary school, Conifers school or the Church.

We’ll share the results with everyone during February!

Henley telephone box refurbishment complete

The iconic telephone box opposite the Duke of Cumberland Arms in Henley has been fully refurbished by the Parish Council and will shortly be put to good use again. It will house a life saving heart-start defibrillator that the council is purchasing with the support of the Communities Heartbeat Trust and with a generous donation by the owner and patrons of Duke of Cumberland Arms. This key piece of medical equipment has now been installed. Appropriate training sessions are in the process of being arranged, perhaps in the Duke, and will be widely advertised by the Parish Council.

The newly repainted K6 telephone box, resplendent in a coat of its original bright red paint, was designed by Sir Giles Gilbert Scott to celebrate the King George Silver Jubilee. Over 20,000 were placed in every town and village by the end of the 1920s and the K6 had its 80th birthday in 2016. The Parish Council trusts that by injecting a new lease of life into this phone box it will continue to serve the wider community around Henley, in its new role, for many more decades.

Defibrillator training will be held at and co-ordinated by the Duke of Cumberland Arms in April for local residents who wish to apply.
