Welcome to the Ewhurst LEAP website.

Ewhurst Local Environment Action People (LEAP) are an inclusive group of friendly volunteers working to improve the surroundings of our beautiful village through conservation, as well as raising awareness of wider environmental issues.

We usually have a working party once a month for a range of activities such as footpath clearing, pond maintenance or litter picking. Through initiatives such as sharing wildflower seeds at the Ewhurst Carnival, we engage others in wider issues that concern us all.

Below are the latest posts, messages and rambles. Amongst them are Richard’s wonderfully evocative articles about his wanderings around the parish, to see these articles in one place see Rambles in a Surrey Village.

Please come and join us at any of the LEAP events and working parties in the calendar below and join the mailing list for occasional emails.

Cobbler’s Brook path

Despite the mud, the team that helped last month made quite a difference to the two footpaths tackled.  A lot of people use the paths from Wykehurst Lane to Coneyhurst Lane, so thank you.  We have another footpath that need widening: FP428 alongside Cobblers Brook and Bramblehurst Farm.

Unfortunately I cannot be with you, but Alice will show you the path. She will also have the LEAP tools to collect from outside our house before she leaves. If you want to borrow secateurs, loppers or a bowsaw please come to Leabrook, Mapledrakes Road. I’ve marked it on the map. Alice will set off from Leabrook at 10am this Saturday 9th February, and will finish at midday.

I have been sent a message from Chris Westbrook in Ellens Green, asking if anyone would like to help out at this year’s Ellens Green communal litter pick, which will be held on Saturday, the 23rd of March. If you are interested please email me and I will pass on the details.

All the best
