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!

Latest Green Volunteers schedule

The latest schedule of works is now available for the team of Green Volunteers who, along with the Friends of Easebourne Parish, work tirelessly to keep our village tidy and looking it’s best.

The MGV meet every Tuesday and Saturday morning, and the link below will tell you where they’ll be next. Please consider joining them for an hour to lend a hand. There’s no long term commitment to join every week, but we’d always appreciate some extra help.

Programme 2022 – Midhurst Green Volunteers

March 23rd, 2022|News, Volunteering|

New Green Volunteers website!

The wonderful Midhurst Green Volunteers have launched a new website today containing the latest information about the planned sessions as well as information about the team and their history.

You can check it out here – Midhurst Green Voluteers – Helping to keep our town looking smart and tidy (midhurstgreenvolunteers.co.uk)

The team are also back in the village this coming Saturday 12th and Tuesday 15th, working along Dodsley Lane from Wheelbarrow Castle heading south.

More hands are always welcome and make easy work of the tasks ahead, so please have a look at your diary and if you can spare an hour on either of those days, grab a pair of gloves and come along! The team start around 8am and finish by 10am, but you can come anytime in between!

Please show your support for this amazing service – without them our village wouldn’t look anywhere near as lovely 🙂

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.
