Posted on Wed, 29/11/2017 - 4:12pm

At the beginning of the Parish Council meeting on Monday 27th November, Chairman Tim Concannon delivered the following speech.


"I understand that there are differing views about what is best for the Village. We are blessed in that there are so very many people who care deeply enough about our community to want to do what is good for the village as they see it.


However, in their enthusiasm, some people forget that there are other views than their own.


New handrails on popular footpath

Posted on Sat, 11/11/2017 - 3:47pm

The Parish Council has arranged for new handrails to be fitted at both ends of the North Lane ("The Lawns") footpath.

After suggestions from Buriton’s “Walking to Health” Group that the steps leading down onto North Lane near to Pillmead House and at Pitcoft Lane could become dangerous, the Parish Council has arranged for new handrails to be fitted.

The Parish Council successfully applied for some grant funding towards the total costs so that not all expenditure fell upon local tax payers. The work has also tidied up the flights of steps, returning them to the condition that they were in many, many years ago.
