Open Gardens in Sayers Common

A garden in Sayers Common is opening its doors in aid of St Peter & James Hospice at the end of the month. The Old Coach House will welcome visitors for the third time in ten years on 27th & 28th April 2019.

Owner Claudine Lower is well prepared and looking forward to welcoming as many visitors as possible. “Lots of friends have all been very generous, so there will be plenty of cakes, refreshments and raffle prizes on offer.”

Claudine remembers the Donkey Derbies which took place in the 50s and which started the fundraising for what was to become St Peter & St James Hospice and is keen to support the cause.

Those who have been before will notice an addition this year; a display of bluebells and a short walk has been fashioned in the grounds. Gates open at 11am.

Where's the nearest defibrillator in Hurstpierpoint, Sayers Common and Albourne?

At Hurst Life we’d like to encourage everyone living and working in the village to familiarise themselves with the sites of the life-saving defibrillator machines and learn how to use them.

Hurstpierpoint has four machines: One on the outside wall at the Fairfield Rec on Cuckfield Road, another is situated at the Bowls Club on South Avenue Rec, a third is inside the Medical Centre on Trinity Road and the final defib machine is mounted on the wall in the alleyway between Morley’s and Olive on the High Street.

In Sayers Common there is one on the outside wall of the Community Shop (by the door to the hall). While in Albourne there is one inside the Primary School, in the gym of Wickwoods Country Club (up Shaves Wood Lane) and one mounted on the outside wall of Albourne Village Hall, to the right of the entrance doors. Not all of these will be available 24/7 but the outside ones listed (right) should be.

Where’s your nearest defibrillator in Hurstpierpoint?

Since running an article back in February this year, we have had a number of people come forward to update our listings of the most local installations of these mobile defibrillators. We committed to print this information from time to time in order to help us all know and learn where to go, for that moment when we might just need to know.

All of the machines are portable and contain full instructions, but why not give yourself a head start with an online tutorial?

Neighbourhood Plan - 92.4% VOTED 'YES'!

From Hurstpierpoint Parish Council website:

Local community supports Plan

The Referendum took place on 12 February 2015 and 2139 electors voted, which was a 42% turn-out. 92.4% ( 1972 electors) voted in favour of the Plan, which means that it will now become the formal planning guidance for the Parish. Council Chairman John Wilkinson said “The Council is delighted to have the support of local people. We know some of the proposals are not everyone’s first choice, but the Plan provides a clear and credible future for restrained development in our villages.”
