‘Bygone Buriton’ exhibition brings back memories for WW2 evacuees

Over a hundred people squeezed into the village hall on Saturday 28th September – including some who had first come here over 70 years ago

With the 75th anniversary of the end of war on the horizon next year, exhibition organisers had tried to track down as many people as possible who had been evacuated to the parish, from Portsmouth and London, during the conflict.

‘Bygone Buriton’ – free Local History Exhibition

The annual local history exhibition will take place in the Village Hall (from 1pm) with lots of displays, photographs and information about life in the parish in years gone by.

 

There will be information from our popular First World War project which has discovered lots of information about life here 100 years ago – and perhaps people can still help us to find out more?
