Volunteering

Brief

As part of the Communications and Volunteering Committee, the Parish Council aims to carry out a number of volunteer projects in the village during the year. Activities can be carried out by a volunteer party either with the support and help of West Sussex or on our own. Volunteering will become more and more important for us local council budgets continue to be squeezed and Parishes need to find ways of doing things that might previously have been done by the County or District teams.

We are always keen to hear from you if you are interested in joining the volunteer list for current or future projects. If you can help, please get in touch!

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.

Picnic in the Park 2021

Easebourne Parish Picnic-in-the-Park
On a slightly overcast day, Easebourne Parish Council held the third community “Picnic-in-the-Park” event, bigger and even better than before, especially after the disappointment of not being able to hold the event last year. This popular and well attended social event was enjoyed by all whom attended and was supported by three musical sessions in the beautiful park Roundhouse from versatile local band, the B3s, led by Steve Ball and talented duo Ellie Baker and Tom Holder, both tremendous musicians.
The event was also supported by Easebourne scouts who provided hot drinks and bacon sandwiches, Deluca’s Ice Cream van, the Easebourne Primary School PTA who were selling pre-used school uniform, Birthday House residents selling knit-ware and knitted children’s toys and a stand manned by Friends of Easebourne Parish (FrEP) who were recruiting volunteers to assist with their litter-picking and other Parish green tidying duties.
Nick Haddock, the under 6s’ coach at Midhurst Rugby Club, held training sessions for youngsters. Additionally, there was a highly popular Dog Show run by David MacDonald-Lawson, where proud dog owners demonstrated their and their pooches skills competing for highly coveted rosettes.
The Parish Council gave out free soft drinks and answered parishioners questions.  Estimates indicate that the Picnic-in-the-Park was attended by around 300 local families. The event would not have been possible without the support of the Head of Easebourne Church of England Primary School, Johnny Culley and a host of willing councillors and other volunteers.
This event was an acclaimed success and will definitely feature as an annual community event well into the future.

Green Volunteers in July, WE NEED YOUR HELP!

The ever energic Midhurst Volunteers are back in the village for the next 3 Saturdays, starting on the 17th July and as ever WE NEED YOUR HELP.

The task for the 17th is to cut back over hanging branches and tidy up Wheelbarrow Castle. We know this path is walked so often by so many villagers, en-route to the Park, going to school, the shop or the pub. So if you are one of the many who will appreciate a wider path and nicer walk, please come along to lend a hand! Meeting on the corner of Cowdray Road and Wheelbarrow Castle from 8.30am until 10am.

The following 2 Saturdays are to clear the upper section of High Path and the path from Hollist Lane to Budgenor Lodge – again, both well used routes. On these days the group will meet on the corner of Hollist Lane at 8.30 until 10am.

Please try to spare an hour to come along and help. As we’ve said before, this work would simply not happen without the volunteer team, many of whom don’t even live in Easebourne! It’s a fun and active way to start your weekend and your chance to do something really good for your community.

You don’t need to be an experienced gardener or bring your own tools. Everything is provided. Please show them some support and come along to lend a hand!

Tomorrow, Wheelbarrow Castle, WE NEED YOUR HELP!

The amazing Midhurst Volunteers are back in Easebourne tomorrow, Saturday 19th June, once again tackling Wheelbarrow Castle! This often used route will be getting a trim, a tidy and a sweep.. and we’d love some extra pairs of hands.

Meeting in the school carpark, come along from 8am until around 10am. All equipment provided but please bring your own gloves. The forecast is for good weather and the team will be spread along the path, working at appropriate distances from each other.

The team are back in the village again on Tuesday 22nd to tackle the upper part of High Path – so if you can’t make it tomorrow, please try to join on Tuesday – better still, come along to both!

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 – it’s a very productive and rewarding way to start your weekend!
