Welcome to Buriton
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.
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.
