Local radio features Buriton

Shine Radio visits the village

Petersfield’s local radio station recorded a feature programme about the community in February.

They had conducted some interviews at the village’s Christmas Tree Shedding event in January (available here) and were keen to come back and find out more.

In particular they wanted to hear about the community’s pollinator initiative and climate care work and also the art activities at the Five Bells.
