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!

This Saturday, High Path, WE NEED YOUR HELP!

The amazing Midhurst Volunteers are back in Easebourne this coming Saturday, 24th April, once again tackling the infamous High Path! This often used route to Midhurst will be getting a trim, a tidy and a sweep.. and we’d love some extra pairs of hands.

Meeting at the Northern end, at the entrance to the Rother sports field, 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.

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!

Join the Green Volunteers this Saturday 27th March

The Green Volunteers are back in the village again this coming Saturday, 27th March – this time working from Egmont Road, south along Dodsley Lane clearing the paths heading towards the Midhurst roundabout.

Last week the team carried out a massive cut back and tidy up of the path north from Egmont Road, heading to the pedestrian crossing – over 2 tonnes of waste was cleared and with only 10 volunteers – AMAZING!

As always, volunteers will be given tasks that enable social distancing to be followed, please bring your own gloves but all other equipment will be provided. For this session we will be meeting on the corner of Egmont Road and Dodsley Lane from 8am on Saturday. The session will usually finish by 10.30am.

Please come along and lend a hand if you can.. many hands make light work.. but if you can’t lend a hand then the team always appreciate a cheerful hello and maybe a cake at the end of the session!

The Green Volunteers are BACK!

The Green Volunteers will return to the village this coming Saturday, 20th February to carry out a tidy up of the upper section of High Path.

They have been taking a break during the current lockdown but keeping a very close eye on the local stats and feel that the time is right to start their sessions again. The Government advice for the current lockdown didn’t actually prevent Volunteer Groups from continuing their work, but it was felt that taking some time off was the responsible thing to do.

As always, volunteers will be given tasks that enable social distancing to be followed, please bring your own gloves but all other equipment will be provided. For this first session of 2021 we will be meeting on the corner of Hollist Lane and Crossways, from 8.30am on Saturday. The session will usually finish by 10.30am.

Please come along and lend a hand if you can.. many hands make light work!

The team will be tackling the leaves and overgrown greenery along the south side of Wheelbarrow Castle. If you’ve walked Wheelbarrow Castle recently you’ll know there’s a lot to clear, so we would be extremely grateful for some extra pairs of hands!

The team usually finish by 10.30am at the latest and you’re welcome to join us then for a celebratory muffin! It’s a great way to start your weekend, by joining this hardworking and dedicated team and giving something back to your community.

Green volunteer update…

Last Saturday, 7th November, the Green Volunteers worked so hard that they trimmed, raked, swept and tidied the whole of High Path in one session – they worked so fast there wasn’t even time for a photo! (Library pic above!)

This type of volunteer activity is still allowed in Lockdown, so this coming Saturday 14th November there’s a bonus opportunity to get involved in a different part of the village.

Meeting from at 8.30am on the corner of Egmont Road and Easebourne Lane, the team will be trimming and sweeping along the paths, in both directions, as far as they in the time that they have! They finish by 10.30am.

Last weeks effort was down to a great team of volunteers – it proves that more hands really do make light work. So please think about taking your daily exercise early this Saturday and doing something really worthwhile at the same time!

Just bring yourself and some gardening gloves. Everything else is provided.
