Love Burwash

Love Burwash Day Report - March 2017

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.

Love Burwash Day 23rd September 2017 - Tidy up before the Winter!!!

The Parish Council are organising the fourth ‘Love Burwash Day’ on Saturday 23rd September from 10am – 1pm and we are asking the local community to join together for couple of hours of litter picking, cleaning, fixing and pruning throughout the parish. 

What we are aiming for is to:  

  • Clean street signage (we know some people already keep the signage near their homes clean)
  • Clean finger posts
  • Work with householders with hedging fronting the road or pavement, ensure it is cut back and any signage clearly visible
  • Wash down all benches, the Burwash Map and the bus stops
  • Tidy any areas where litter is gathering

In addition, as you travel around the parish, take note of any broken or missing bollards, any bent or rusty signage or any areas where the footpaths are obstructed and report these to the Parish Council.

We would also welcome suggestions for any specific areas in need of a bit of LOVE.

To register your interest please e-mail the Parish Clerk or telephone 07854 699518 with your name, contact details and a suggestion of which area you would like to help.
