Tomorrow, Saturday 11th and it’s Green Volunteer time!

The Midhurst Green Volunteers are back in the village tomorrow, Saturday 11th September, meeting from 8am at the corner of Dodsley Grove and Dodsley Lane, near the entrance to the Rotherfield Sports ground. The task will be to cut back the summers growth along High Path. The session is usually finished by 10.30.

Last week the lack of volunteers from the village was again disappointing, so sadly this could be the last time the volunteers tackle High Path. If as a village we can’t generate more help for them then we will need to rely on the annual cut from CDC. At times this might make the path quite difficult to use.

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 are in town again!

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.
