Join us for a FREE afternoon of fun and activities in Haywards Heath, Burgess Hill, East Grinstead and Hurstpierpoint at the start of August.

We're hosting four FREE Play Day events for local families to enjoy.

The theme this year is 'beside the seaside' and all the rides, games and creative activities are inspired by the traditional British beach holiday.


Funding has been provided by the Clarion Housing Group to enable Mid Sussex District Council to host a Play Day event in Hurstpierpoint for the first time. The money is part of the Clarion Futures project, an initiative that aims to make estates and neighbourhoods more attractive and vibrant places to live.


The financial support provided by Clarion means the Play Day at Court Bushes Recreation Ground will feature free miniature train rides for children to enjoy, in addition to all the seaside themed events.

Hurst Meadows - open to the public…….
1st May 2018


Nearly 50 acres of meadowland has now been acquired by the Parish Council, for access by the public and for preservation of the natural countryside. This is part of the Council's Neighbourhood Plan which was approved by over 90% of the community in our referendum in 2015.


The area is north of Trinity Road, west of College Lane, and east of Iden Hurst and Fairfield Crescent, with points of access currently from the Millennium Garden (Trinity Road), Highfield Drive, Latchetts Lane and St Georges Green.


Over the coming months and years we will be introducing new planting, to reinforce the indigenous species, introducing a community orchard, improving access and adding noticeboards and maps to help everyone understand and enjoy the areas.
