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.

We currently meet once a month. Please join our mailing list for details of our next meeting.

Plant your Tree for the Queen’s Jubilee

If you’re interested in helping us, even if it’s for an hour or two a month, we’d love to hear from you.

Charlotte here! We're really looking forward to our screening of 'We The Power' next Thursday at St Lawrence School Hall, 7:30pm. We hope lots of you can make it as we've put a fair bit of effort into putting on the screening 😉 There will be a bar there serving wine and soft drinks. The film is around 40 minutes long and there will be time afterwards for a discussion about it and about community energy here in the UK. We think it's going to be a very inspiring evening. Watch the trailer here and let us know if you plan to come in the comments 🙌 ... See MoreSee Less

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.
