Welcome to Buriton

Scores of parishioners and visitors from further afield came to the first Open Day in the Buriton Chalk Pits on Saturday 7th May. There was a range of activities for all age groups - enhanced by perfect weather conditions.

About 70 parishioners, family and friends were treated to a delightful stroll along farm paths not normally open to the public - including a magnificent show of bluebells and some impressive Early Purple orchids.

Over 100 villagers and friends have booked places for Buriton's popular antidote to ordinary Quiz Nights: Saturday 14th May, 7.30pm in Buriton Village Hall.

This is the third Buriton Wine Challenge in aid of the AGSD-UK. Funds raised will sponsor Allan Muir to take part in a slightly more demanding challenge - a 1500 mile cycle ride from Pompey to Pompeii in September. All funds raised from the event will go towards supporting families living with Pompe and related ultra-rare diseases and to promote research into improved care and treatments.

As always, Buriton will be supporting this anuual fund-raising drive for the poor and disadvantaged. Christian Aid aims to attract support for its projects not just from the church community but from all quarters. Collection envelopes will be distributed in advance and collected house-to-house.
