Session 2: Week beginning 12th November 2018 (Monday 12th, Tuesday 13thand Wednesday 14th)
This session will require more heavy digging:

Easebourne Parish Council have three new opportunities for volunteers to get involved in the creation of Easebourne Park, which is adjacent to Wheelbarrow Castle.
On three Mondays: 17th and 24th September 2018 and 1st October 2018, we will be joined by Darren Rolfe from West Sussex County Council who will the tasks which include installation of a new ramp and two sets of steps which improve access to the Park for everyone.
All equipment will be provided as well as tea and biscuits, so if you can spare a few hours or would just like further information, please get in touch! Contact firstname.lastname@example.org or Sharon on 07342 166 188.
The Parish Council are organising the annual Spring litter pick for Saturday 14th April, meeting in the Primary School car park on Wheelbarrow Castle at 9.30am. All equipment will be provided, including gloves, bags, hi-vis vests and litter grabbers. Please spread the word and come along to spend an hour making our village a cleaner place. All ages are welcome. If you can definitely make it please let our Parish Clerk know so we can make sure we have enough equipment. Thank you and see you on the 14th!
The 2nd of our new notice boards was installed last weekend at the corner of Dodsley Grove and Dodsley Lane. We hope you agree it’s a massive improvement on the old wooden board! The 1st of the new notice boards was installed outside the village shop in December. Pictured here after installing the board is Trevor, one of our Councillors involved in the project.
With the days getting longer we are on a mission to establish a greater Speedwatch presence within the village. The most recent session logged over 40 drivers exceeding the speed limit in under an hour! However we need more volunteers. It’s an interesting role, you’ll always be working with another volunteer and for no more than an hour at a time. Some simple training on using a Speedgun is provided. If you can help please contact our Parish Clerk or complete the volunteer form, click here, for more information.
