Help needed at Hurst Farm Pond

2 July 2019

East Grinstead in Bloom needs volunteers to help with maintenance at Hurst Farm Pond. It would be a great help if you could spare just an hour of your time one Sunday afternoon a month.

We need to clear unwanted growth, such as brambles, from smothering the naturalised bluebells in our local beauty spot.

Have fun meeting others in a peaceful setting which is much enjoyed by the locals. We want to keep it natural and undeveloped where the local wild life can feel safe.  You may even be able to see moorhens or mallards with their youngsters.  This is also a good place to introduce youngsters to the beauty of nature.

Volunteers needed for East Grinstead in Bloom

25 June 2019

East Grinstead in Bloom is a group of local volunteers whose aims are to improve the local environment for the benefit of all. We are aligned with South and South East in Bloom which in turn reflects the aims of Britain in Bloom which each year involves hundreds of enthusiastic communities across the UK, from the smallest village to the largest city. We enter our town into the South and South East in Bloom competition each year and have been successful in gaining the Silver Gilt standard in various categories.

We would dearly love to win gold this year but desperately need volunteers to work on our various gardens. This need only be 2 hours once a month but as you can imagine there is a great difference between 2 people working in a garden (which sadly it sometimes is) and say 6. Three times as much work achieved! So please come and give it a try. It helps if you like gardening and have some hand forks/trowels spades and forks. We work on various gardens and on different days and times.

  • Compass Garden, Mount Noddy, 10.00 – 12.00 the first Sunday of each month

If you would like to join or find out more information, email or just come along!
