SUTTON SPOTLIGHT: The latest edition of the Sutton Spotlight was delivered around the village over the week-end, although somewhat late, this edition was packed full of information, and included an extra update and progress report from Sutton Art Group, based in the village. The additional information included a copy of works carried out over a period by artists old and new, and all done to a high standard. Also included in this edition of Spotlight are details of Nottinghamshire Community Foundation, a local charity, who are the new owners of Sutton Meadow (formerly Sutton Manor Paddock).

Sutton Meadows is currently being landscaped by willing volunteers to create a quiet space for use by local residents during open hours. The development is very much work in progress and villagers will be able to enjoy access during the process, rather than wait for a completed project. The opening times for the Meadow will be displayed on a notice board near the main gate.

As this is a new venture for the charity, they are keen to ensure that the space is developed and maintained to add value to the village surroundings, facilitate an educational benefit to the children of the village school, and generally provide a pleasant location to visit, walk in, or just sit and enjoy all the aspects of the environment.

This edition of the Spotlight has been very well received throughout the village and is funded by the Parish Council but edited and produced and distributed by volunteers.
