*Look out for our stall at the St Lawrence Fair this year on Saturday 30th June.

 

 

The Hurstpierpoint Society AGM is on Saturday 14th April 2018 in the Village Centre starting at 14.00.This will be followed by a presentation by Mary Louise Rowland, the deputy archivist at Hurstpierpoint College, talking about the original architecture at the College and more recent developments, reflecting the College moto of Floreat Hurst, showing how the College is flourishing.

 

Hurstpierpoint Society, founded in 1962, is a well-supported village charity with more than 1,300 members, all committed to improving and protecting our village environment.

 

We take a particular interest in planning issues that might irrevocably damage the appearance and character of this historic village, or the ecology of the surrounding countryside.

 

The village features over 100 listed buildings within three conservation areas, containing an eclectic mix of architectural styles which we are committed to preserving.

 

Our bustling High Street contains both listed and unlisted buildings dating from the 14th century, including shops with living accommodation above. This results in a richness of streetscape which defines Hurstpierpoint as a village of character and charm.

 

The village boasts numerous societies covering a range of activities and interests for all ages.

 

 

What a fantastic Christmas Street Party on Sunday afternoon. We sold out of Christmas Cards and two pots of mulled wine! Thank you to everybody who visited our stall and for buying the beautiful Hurstpierpoint Society Christmas Cards and joining the Society.

 

 

We are very grateful to Toby Lott for commissioning the paintings by Lyndsey Smith for Hurstpierpoint Society to use for fundraising. They are absolutely wonderful and will prove to be a significant contribution to help us sustain our efforts to continue to protect the historic fabric of the village, as the Society has done for over 50 years.

 

Increasingly in recent years, the Society has moved beyond protecting and conserving, and the never-ending scrutiny of planning applications, to contributing to the 'future history' of our village. We have planted over 100 trees around the village and helped fund many community projects, the most recent being the new cover for St. Lawrence School's swimming pool.

 

Never far from our minds is the need to maintain the significant membership of the Society that currently has over 1,300 members.

 

People will be able to buy our Christmas cards and join the Society on our Christmas Street Party stand. The Christmas cards will be sold in packs of 10 for £4. There will be limited edition Giclee signed prints of the village party scene available to order for £40 with all proceeds going to the Hurstpierpoint Society. The prints are signed and numbered. Unframed, approx. 30 x 40 cms. Posted either flat or rolled in a cardboard tube.
