Families from nine different counties in England and some from Wales flocked to see Buriton’s annual local history exhibition on Saturday 29th September 2012 – mingling with residents and parishioners.
Possibly one of the last chances to enjoy one of Buriton Events’ evenings of fun in the Manor Barn - and a bit of a coup for the village with the visit of stars of radio, TV and the Edinburgh Fringe, “Instant Sunshine”.
"A great evening" seems to be the overwhelming reaction to Buriton's first ever 'Parish Proms'. Held in the magnificent Manor Barn on Sunday 9 September, the event contained a mixture of humorous songs and Albert Hall favourites - something for everybody – and it provided another opportunity to wave those Union Jacks and bunting.
Over 350 children attend the Primary and Secondary Schools in Dompoase – an outlying hamlet of Dominase in rural Ghana. And, until now, they have not had anywhere private to go to the loo. Teenage girls would choose not to go to school for a few days every month; missing out on vital learning.
Buriton is an attractive and historic place with a friendly and active community. Walkers, cyclists and horse-riders are welcomed but car parking is very limited, except for customers of the Five Bells or Master Robert Inn.
Visitors by car are encouraged to park elsewhere. There is a public car park just half a mile south of the village at Halls Hill (Grid Reference SU 734198).
Visitors can also park at the Queen Elizabeth Country Park, PO8 0QE (Grid Reference SU 719186) and enjoy any of a number of routes into the village.
