Hurst Rethink

Hurst Rethink

We are a group of locals who have joined forces to drive sustainable change in the villages of Hurstpierpoint and Sayers Common. All of the group are volunteers and we have no political affiliations.

We have decided to focus our efforts on five main action areas: Biodiversity and Nature, Community, Green Consumer, Green Homes & Energy and Green Transport. Underpinning all of this will be work with the relevant local councils (Parish Council, Mid Sussex District Council, West Sussex County Council) and action groups as well as publicity and education in our community. Read more about us.

The Hurst Rethink AGM will take place on Wednesday 30th November at 7:30pm. The meeting will take place on Zoom and the joining details are:

Learn About Sustainability

We highly recommend the What Planet Are We On Podcast’, available on BBC Sounds. Presenter Liz Bonnin delves into various issues, including our relationship with wildlife, agriculture, consumerism and economics. It’s a great way of gaining insight into the issues facing us all and how we can change for the better.
