A big new family event with a range of activities, talks, stalls and demonstrations
Come along with all the family to enjoy a free, fun-packed afternoon in the village hall and on the recreation ground.
From 12 noon until 4pm.
The theme of the community’s “B-earth Day” event is all about nature, wildlife, pollinators and climate issues in the parish.
There’ll be a nature-themed fancy dress competition, a mini-beast safari, art activities, face-painting, displays from Buriton school and much more.
- 1.30pm: master chef Heinrich Boreniok: cooking for your health and for the planet
- 2.15pm: cheap energy saving tricks and tips from expert Christine Murphy
- 3pm: mini-beast safari with Melanie Oxley
There’ll also be the grand opening of Buriton’s new bug hotel and opportunities to buy bird boxes and to make your own mini bug hotels.
Other stalls include bumblebee conservation experts, the RSPB, Woodlands Trust, the Hampshire Swifts Charity, HCC’s Pollinator Team, Petersfield’s Climate Action Network, South East Water, Petersfield Cycle Buddies, Buriton’s Thermal Image Camera team, the Primary School’s Uniform swap, Ditcham Park School’s ‘Relove Your Stuff’ team … and more.
Light refreshments and a raffle available.
Although there’ll be a serious message behind the event, it’s hoped that everyone will find it fun as well as interesting.
As there is only limited parking in the village it’s hoped that people will do their bit to help the planet by walking or cycling to the event.
For anyone visiting from beyond the parish there are lots of lovely walks to Buriton from places like Petersfield or the Queen Elizabeth Country Park.
