CHURCH MATTERS: Thanks to everyone who gave so generously of tombola prizesand helped in anyway at the opening of Sutton Meadows on Sunday 16th June. The proceeds of the Tombola stall raised the sum of £90 toward the toilet and kitchen fund. Thanks to all concerned!

YET AGAIN: Yes it’s happening again, much to the disgust of villagers and genuine and responsible dog owners/lovers. People in charge of dogs ignoring the plentiful warning signs/ and doggy bins provided and leaving their dogs droppings behind. With one successful prosecution carried out and another pending villagers are asked to report any incidents noted and details to Bassetlaw District Council for their perusal and any action they may wish to take. Don’t blame the dogs, blame the irresponsible owners!!
