Welcome to Buriton

Many thanks to everybody who has helped with our 'Buy a Bog' fund-raising campaign to help improve sanitation conditions in our sister community of Dominase. Photographs in earlier messages have shown work taking place on the block of school toilets that we are providing. Here are two more photos (taken in January) which show the building taking shape.

On one of our early visits to Dominase, thanks to village connections with (and the generosity of) Corporate Mobile Recycling Ltd, we were able to take a number of recycled mobile phones with us.

If anybody identifies a person who is vulnerable and who may also be worried that their fuel supply is about to run out (or has run out), the following telephone number at HantsDirect will be staffed (24hrs) to coordinate this: 0845 603 5630 (Adult Services).

Plans for a day of festivities and fun in Buriton on Sunday 3rd June have been revealed in the Parish Magazine. And bookings are needed for the Street Party by 1st May so that the organisers know how many tables and chairs to obtain.

Children in Dominase are not fortunate to have many of the educational aids that we take for granted. Pens, pencils, paper, books and school uniforms are all very expensive for poor families. Without any electricity in their schools, children can only learn computer skills by looking at books with pictures of keyboards.
