Buriton Parish Council has sent a detailed response to Hampshire County Council’s consultation about cuts to bus services.
The latest kissing gate in the Parish Council’s programme to gradually replace stiles in the parish was recently installed near Weston Farm.
The Parish Council has subsequently received a number of messages of thanks including the following: “The new kissing gate is much appreciated by dog walkers and families as it stops dogs and children rushing out into the road and access into the field is so much easier. Everyone I have spoken to is very pleased with it. Please thank everyone involved for making it happen.”
