Volunteering

The Parish Council aims to encourage volunteering within the community and supports a number of groups, events and projects during the year. Volunteering continues to become more and more important as District 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.

There are two active volunteering groups within our local community, the Friends of Easebourne Parish (FrEP) and the Midhurst Green Volunteers. Both these groups do tremendous work in keeping parts of our Parish tidy, well maintained and clear of overgrowing vegetation.

To find out more about the Friends of Easebourne Parish, please contact frepsec@btinternet.com and to contact the Midhurst Green Volunteers visit their website www.midhurstgreenvolunteers.co.uk  

You can also contact the Parish Council to register your interest in either of these fantastic groups and we can pass on your details.
