Love Burwash

Love Burwash Day 3rd November 2018

Each year the Parish Council organises two Love Burwash days to get the parish cleaned up one in the spring and one in autumn.  This next Love Burwash is an extra special one.  Many people may have seen the preparations going on for the 100 armistice which will be remembered on the 11th November.  For details of events on this day please click here.  This year councillors want to really concentrate efforts in making the parish ready for these services which will be held at the three churches. Therefore efforts will be concentrated on the High Street in Burwash and teams will be working in Burwash Weald and Common to give the whole parish a good tidy up for the winter.

Even if you just want to come and do some light litter picking or gardening on the day every little bit helps and it is a really fun day for everyone to get together.  If you are interested in taking part this year please contact the Clerk, Jane Clarke on 07854699518 or to find out more about the day. Teams will be meeting from 10am on the 3rd November in Burwash, Burwash Weald and Burwash Common and likely to finish around midday.  Furthe details to follow.

This Love Burwash we would also like to welcome everyone who helps on the day to come at celebrate the founder of Love Burwash our dear late Cllr Jacky Nash who sadly passed away earlier this year.  A lime tree on the High Street is being dedicated in her honour at 12.30pm outside Alma House (formerly Teskey’s Newsagents).  We hope you will be able to join us in remembering this special lady.

Love Burwash Day 28th April 2018

Was a great success. 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.
