Fifty-Mile Walk (Plus)
Local man Alan Petrie (71 years old) is planning to walk 50 miles or more in North Somerset for five days in early September. Monies raised from the event is destined for Cancer Research UK. Alan, who has lived in Sutton for 18 years, has a Just Giving page, “Alans walk for cancer”, on Facebook and is looking for support for his charitable event and a very worthwhile cause. Villagers wish him well with his quest in September.
Sutton and Barnby Moor W.I.
There was no monthly meeting of the group in August (now standard practice) as the local association had organised an “Away Day”, where some members get together for an evening meal with their peers. Things return to normal next month when the group will meet as usual on Wednesday 21st September, same time, same venue. You are invited to join them.
New members and visitors are always welcome every 3rd Wednesday of the month at Sutton Village Hall, 7:15pm (summer), or 2:15pm (winter).
St Bartholomew’s Church
On Sunday 21st August, the 10th Sunday of Trinity, a service of “Worship for All” took place at the local church. The service started at the usual time of 9:30am and everyone was welcomed to the event.
Toilet and Kitchen Update
The church is moving ever closer to raising the money needed for the installation of a toilet and kitchen to make the building more useful and inclusive for community events. So far, because of people’s generosity, £45,000 has been raised towards the target. Further fundraising activities are being planned as well as the church seeking funding from grants.
A special Just Giving site has been set up for anyone wishing to make a personal donation towards the project. Every penny counts and the church appreciates all donations large or small. If you would like to donate you can either click on the link below, or make a donation by cheque posting it to us, or handing it to one of the Churchwardens.
Meet the Neighbours
This informal lunch club has been operating for over 15 years, providing a monthly event for everyone where, for a very reasonable price, you can enjoy a fresh home-cooked two-course meal followed by tea or coffee.
