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.

Join us for our next event – a community bike ride to Hassocks!

Unsurprisingly, their biggest concerns were around energy and biodiversity. Universally they wanted to see more greenery - trees and wild areas. They also wanted to see transformation in our energy systems, with a focus on local, renewable energy production. We will hopefully be working with the school further in the next academic year. ...

A reminder that sadly, from now on we can ONLY collect MILK BOTTLE TOPS at our collection box in the Village Centre. All other plastic lids will need to go into your black bin at home. We're really sorry about this but plastic lid recycling is very limited and they now longer collect at Haywards Heath for the hospital, which was where our lids were going. ... 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.
