Welcome to Buriton

All the District Council’s litter bins around the village can be used for bags of dog poo.

 

Thanks to dozens of volunteers on Saturday 23 February, bags and bags of litter and rubbish were collected so that our lanes and hedgerows now look tidy again.

A hundred years ago the hills above the village were all open downland – grazed by thousands of sheep. But reactions to the First World War brought significant changes – and perhaps more are yet to come?

Popular artist Paul Best will be teaching and demonstrating techniques with acrylic paints, focusing on aspects of local Buriton landscapes.

Buriton’s new Chalk Pits Ranger, Ashlea Walters, arranged another popular session in the Nature Reserve on 16 February – enticing participants with the usual tea, coffee and cakes.
