L❤️VE BURWASH DAY 2019
Scores of people turned out on Saturday, 23 March, 2019 to give our three villages a wash and brush-up as part of the annual Love Burwash spring clean. This year the regulars were joined by Brownies and Beavers who worked on a clean-up of the playground equipment at Swan Meadow. The Parish Council would like to thank the volunteers who worked so hard during the day – neatening the borders on the Lime Tree pavements; clearing the verge in Ham Lane; cleaning the bus stops, benches and signs as well as litter picking and clearing undergrowth from verges. A great job by great teams! Click here for photos.
Love Burwash Day, November 3, 2018
This event was extra special for two reasons: it was an opportunity to prepare for Services of Remembrance to mark the 100th anniversary of the end of the First World War on November 11 and it was the day we honoured the founder and inspiration of Love Burwash Day, the late parish councillor Jacky Nash.
Jacky’s family and friends gathered in the High Street to unveil a plaque and dedicate one of the village’s unique Lime Trees in her memory. Jacky’s son Richard Huggett said: “My mother loved Burwash and we are all so proud of what she did.”
Parish Council Chair Betty McBride said: “One of Jacky’s greatest contributions to the village was the launch of the Lime Tree adoption scheme which brings together preservation of the trees and community involvement. She was in every sense the inspiration for Love Burwash Day – as founder and key organiser.”
The plaque in her memory is beneath a Lime Tree outside Alma House, opposite The Bear pub.
