‘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?

 

Evacuated to Buriton

A fascinating account of life in Buriton during the Second World War

Gill Hamilton, now living in Perth, Australia, has recently sent details of her life in the village as an evacuee from 1939-45.

She had been living as a small child in Portsmouth before she came to live with Canon and Mrs Morley and about 18 other evacuees in Buriton Rectory.

‘Bygone Buriton’ – free Local History Exhibition

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

There will be a particular focus on life 100 years ago as the First World War was drawing to an end – but we still want to find out more about what living conditions were like at those times, as well as finding out more about every one of the parishioners who took part. Can you help?
