Adastra Park is a real asset to Hassocks Parish Council and to the community as a whole.  The Parish Council is keen to ensure that the facilities in the Park meet the needs of a changing and growing community.  Therefore with this in mind, a “Masterplan” has been drawn up with a range of proposed improvements to make Adastra Park a Park for All.  

The Parish Council is seeking the views from as many members of the community as possible through a Public Consultation.  The Consultation is running from Monday 7 May, for a six week period, until Monday 18 June 2018, please view the proposals.

Alternatively, the MASTERPLAN can be viewed online by clicking the link.




The Garden of Remembrance in Adastra Park was created by Edward Stafford, who donated Adastra Park to the Parish Council.  Edward Stafford’s eldest son, The Frederick John Ewart Stafford (known as Ewart) was killed in the First World War, and the Garden of Remembrance was to commemorate Ewart and other comrades from the village.  Further information about the history of the Adastra Garden of Remembrance and other War Memorials in Clayton and Keymer can be found here.

The Parish Council would very much like to initiate a plan to refresh this special area and to provide ongoing maintenance and care.  Therefore it is hoped that it might be possible to create a team of volunteers who would be prepared to roll up their sleeves and help to bring this beautiful garden back to full glory.

If you feel you might be able to give your time even for just a couple of mornings per year, please let the Parish Office know by completing a VOLUNTEER FORM and dropping it into the office (address as above) or emailing at
