Friends of Easebourne Parish (FrEP) are now on social media!
The amazing FrEP team of volunteers are now on Instagram and Facebook! Search Friends of Easebourne Parish and follow them to see what they’ve been up to, out and about in the village tidying up, cutting back hedges, trimming verges, looking after our planters, picking litter.. the list goes on!

Become the Editor of your Community Magazine!
United Easebourne Magazine are looking for a new Editor to take over the role of pulling together this community focussed magazine from July 2023 onwards.
Tina and Gavin, the current editors have been doing the role as volunteers for the last 7 years but feel it’s time for someone else to take on the challenge! It’s a very rewarding role, sharing news and stories about what’s happening in our community, its people and its businesses.
Tina tells us it takes around 3 days in a month, split over the month of course and is all done from home. It doesn’t have to be done by one person, so maybe it’s something you think you could share with someone? If being an editor or roving reporter is something you’ve always fancied having a go at then maybe this is your opportunity!
To find out more and to have a chat about what’s involved, please get in touch with us by email or phone.

Thank you Sara Davies, Phil Stringer, Frank Davies, Ian Milne (who took the picture!) and Jon Clarke.
