Love Burwash

Love Burwash Day - when residents of the three villages (Burwash, Burwash Common and Burwash Weald) don hi-viz jackets and wellies, and grab their brooms, sponges and mops to give the villages a spring clean.

Love Burwash Day 2018

This year, Love Burwash Day will be on Saturday, 28 April - more details to follow. 

Here's how Love Burwash went last year:

Burwash had its 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.
