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.

No Mow May 2024

It’s May and it’s that time of year again to leave the lawn mower in the shed for the month and let the grass and flowers grow. Leaving your lawn to nature at this vital time of year will provide food for pollinators who in turn provide food for all the birds raising their families in and around your garden. If you want more details on No Mow May, including how to count the flowers at the end of the month, visit the Plantlife official No Mow May webpage.

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.

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.
