Love Burwash

Come and join us to give
Burwash Parish a Spring Clean!

Since 2016 Burwash Parish Council has organised a clean-up twice a year.  For two hours we ask residents to come and help us tidy and spruce up the Parish.  All are welcome and it is a great community event that supports the  Great British Spring Clean 2019.  We will be updating this section of the website over the next few weeks.

 If you are able to help on the day or would like any more information please contact the Parish Clerk on or phone 07854 699518.  If you would like to come on the day please register so we know we have enough high-vis jackets/litter pickers/black bags and other such delights!

If there are any areas within the Parish you feel could do with some 'Love' then please let us know and we can see what we can do on the day.  

Teams will be meeting in the following places:

  • Burwash Village - The Bear Car Park
  • Burwash Weald - The Wheel Pub Car Park
  • Burwash Common - The triangle of Vicarage Road and Vicarage Lane

Love Burwash Day,  November 3, 2018

The Parish Council organised another Love Burwash Day on November 3 to get our three villages spruced up and tidied. The latest event was extra special for two reasons: it was an opportunity to prepare for Services of Remembrance to mark the 100th anniversary of the end of the First World War on November 11 - for details of events please click here - and it was the day we honoured the founder and inspiration of Love Burwash Day, the late parish councillor Jacky Nash.  

Family and friends gathered to dedicate a lime tree in Jacky's honour on Burwash High Street. It was a fitting tribute to her love for Burwash. See here for details.

Here are some pictures from Love Burwash Day:


Love Burwash Day 28th April 2018

Parishioners got together on Saturday 28 April to give our three beautiful villages a spring clean.

The rain held off and villagers worked all morning cleaning, weeding, trimming, litter picking and planting poppies.  Many motorists and pedestrains stopped to congratulate the teams in Hi-Vis Jackets from Burwash, Burwash Common and Burwash Weald on their community spirit.










































 Here's how Love Burwash went last year:

The three villages had their annual Spring Clean on Saturday 25th March 2017. Teams of volunteers from all round the parish participated, the youngest being aged 5 and the oldest in their 80s.

Volunteers cleaned all the road signs and finger posts from the Etchingham road to Burwash Common and all surrounding lanes. In the village itself, the car park and footpath were cleared and the area around the Scout Hut was tidied by the Cubs; grass was cut and the lanes around Batemans were litter picked by National Trust Volunteers. Dudwell Bridge was enthusiastically tidied by a family of 5 year olds and another 5 year old washed the post box.

All the Lime Trees along the High Street, which had been adopted, were labelled; the frontage of Rectory Court was cleared and tided and the bank along by Highfields was cleared and widened

Teams were also out in Burwash Common and Burwash Weald.  The Burwash Common team cleared the twitten from Vicarage Lane to Vicarage Road of brambles and overgrown branches.  The bus shelter was cleaned and given a makeover as was the phone box.  The overgrown grass verges were also cleared giving better access for pedestrians and mums with pushchairs along the A265 and down the Stonegate Road.  Although the maintenance of the overgrown verges is an ongoing job it is great exercise and much cheaper than going to the gym!

Our thanks go to all volunteers, especially the Fire Service who provided their mobile unit as the base for the morning.
