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.

A reminder about our Community Bike Ride tomorrow at 10.30am. All are welcome, young and old, slow or not so slow 😜. We will gather in Trinity Road Car Park from 10.15am for a safety briefing before setting off to Hassocks where we will stop at the newly located Hassocks Village Market in the Age Concern Car Park. This is a steady and fairly easy bike ride with lots of cheer, bell ringing and colour. Please dress in your brightest clothes and come along for half an hour of fun, followed by a bit of shopping! We would love to see cars on our roads slow down a bit to make cyclists feel safer and encourage more people to get on their bikes. Let's show it can be done... See lots of you tomorrow morning 🙌 ...

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.
