The Co-operative Food shop launched its opening at the Hurst Community Charity Shop on Tuesday 20 December 2016. The opening hours are 8 am to 8 pm and there is a very good range of products.
Please note: This is a temporary move for the Co-op until their High Street store has been repaired from the recent fire. The Charity Shop is located at the Village Green off the Hurstpierpoint High Street (west side); the closest car park is Trinity Road Car Park.
The short-term section of Trinity Road carpark has increased its parking time allowed from 2 hours to 3 hours; the hours of operation have also increased and are now: Monday - Saturday from 8:00 am - 6:00 pm , excluding bank holidays. That means that showing your parking disc in the car, you can now park there for up to 3 hours, between 8 am - 6 pm. Discs are on sale for £1.00 at a number of locations in the village.
The Parish Council has now started to replace the 140 or so old streetlights around Hurstpierpoint and Sayers Common, with new LED versions. 'Heritage' style columns will be used in selected 'conservation' areas and slimline style in others.
Hurstpierpoint Food Bank collects non-perishable food, kindly donated by local people, and distributes it to people who are in financial crises and are hungry. Clients in need are normally given a Voucher for sufficient food for 3 days. A client can normally only receive 4 vouchers per year - help is to give someone breathing space in a crisis.
Vouchers are provided at a number of places including the Parish Council office, St Lawrence C of E Primary School, Hurstpierpoint Pre-School, Sussex Downs Children and Family Centre, and others. To receive your Food Bags, you can take the voucher to The Melting Pot Cafe at the Social Club, Willow Way, Hurstpierpoint, on Wednesdays from 9 am - 11.30 am.
