BURNS SUPPER VENUE CHANGE: Please Note there has been a late VENUE CHANGE for the Burns Supper scheduled to take place at Sutton Village hall on Friday 26th January. The event has now been transferred to Barnby Moor Village Hall. The organisers apologise for this late change, but it was beyond their control as Sutton Village Hall was no longer available for the event. Doors open 6:30pm for a 7:00pm start.

NEW ARRIVAL: The village had a new arrival last week, observant villagers will have noticed the new village post box, situated near the telephone kiosk on the village green at the junction of Sutton Lane with Station Road. Concerns were raised when the previous and probably the most used box was removed from the external wall of the former village store on Town Street having been there for many many years. Intervention by the Parish Council and support from District/County Councillor Tracey Taylor outlining the loss of such a community asset has proved fruitful and it is hoped the new facility will be used as much as the previous one. Although in situ the new box was not operational at the time of going to press.

NEIGHBOURHOOD WATCH: The next committee meeting of the local association is scheduled to take place on Wednesday 31st January at the usual time of 2:30pm.
