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 Jumble Trail Sunday 2nd April 10am-2pm
Get involved with the Hurst Rethink Community Jumble Trail on Sunday 2nd April 2023. We have nearly 60 households signed up to have a stall outside their house and you can find most of them on the map below. If you scan the QR code, it will take you to a Google Map with all locations marked on it.
There will be several stalls outside Hurst Community Charity shop so make sure you include a visit there if you’re out and about. We look forward to meeting lots of you on the day.
Here’s a map of the households taking part. You can download a PDF of this map here.
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.
