New Hurstpierpoint community building ready to open
A derelict building in Hurstpierpoint has been transformed from a burnt out shell into a brand new community building for local people.
The Court Bushes Community Hub is a flexible space that can be divided into three self contained areas to allow different events and functions to operate simultaneously, or opened up to make space for larger events. The building is set overlooking the large Court Bushes Recreation Ground, with football goals, play areas and a skate park.
The new community building, which was formerly the Ex Servicemen's Club, has been brought back into use by Mid Sussex District Council after it was devastated by fire in 2017. The building will be managed by Hurstpierpoint Parish Council and you can find more information about the facilities, activities and make bookings at https://www.hurstpierpointvillagehalls.org/
A special opening event takes place on Saturday June 1st, 1pm - 3pm and everyone is welcome to come along and celebrate the launch of this fantastic community building. There will be free refreshments, a bouncy castle, music by DJ Neel, dance demonstrations and the nursery will be open for soft play.
Hurst Festival will also be running a Mosaic workshop to create a beautiful sign for the new Hurstpierpoint Community Hub. Mosaic Artist and Teacher, Caroline Budden (LunaMoon Mosaic) will be leading the session and everyone is welcome to join in and contribute to the community mosaic. No experience is necessary and all materials will be provided.
We hope to see you there from 1pm - 3pm on Saturday 1 June 2019.
