We formed our Community group in October 2021 following the success of the COVID -19 Neighbourhood group. This group got locals to look out for and support each other during the pandemic and we want to carry on this spirit of caring.

The aim of the Hurst Rethink Community group is to strengthen our community bonds through a series of events which encourage neighbours to come together in shared experiences, to get to know each other better, to have fun and also be more sustainable.

Hurst Rethink Community Advent Calendar

Hurst Rethink Community are delighted to announce that the Hurstpierpoint Advent Calendar is ready to go! 24 families have signed up to open their festive Advent Windows between 5-8pm on the dates specified on the poster. All Windows will be open on Christmas Eve. The map will help people plan their Advent route as they walk around the village.

We have requested that photos of the windows to be posted on the newly formed Hurstpierpoint Advent Calendar 2022 Facebook group, so that those who cannot get out and about are still able to enjoy them.

If you would like a digital version of the map then please email for a copy. ( A printer ink friendly poster can be printed in black and white ). 


Big Hurst Jumble Trail

Our first Village wide Jumble Trail took place on Sunday 10th April 2022 from 10am – 2pm and was a great success. We hope to repeat it in spring 2023.

Hurst Rethink Community Doorstep Carols

Our first event was the Hurst Rethink Community Doorstep Carols on Wednesday 15th December 2021. This was part of a nationwide initiative to come out onto the street, sing carols with our neighbours and spread a bit of festive cheer.

The carols were broadcast over BBC Sussex Radio from 6-7 pm on Wednesday 15th December (same across BBC local radio stations throughout the UK) so it’s a simple case of tuning in on a mobile phone or other device and attaching a speaker to share the carols with your neighbour group.  Then sing your heart out!

We’ve set up a Facebook group for everyone who is interested in taking part. Please join it to find out the latest news.
