Parish Council

Parish Council Meeting

The Parish Council met on Wednesday 15th March 2023 at 7:00pm in the Village Hall. A full report will follow, when to hand.

Volunteers Required

The Parish Council are putting plans together to celebrate the forthcoming coronation of His Majesty King Charles III on Saturday, May 6th 2023. If you would like to be involved in putting these events together and can volunteer your time and energy in whatever way you can, please contact the clerk at clerk@suttoncumlound.net.


The volunteers from the Sutton Speedwatch team were out on two separate occasions last week. Braving inclement weather, the members were out at 5:30am until 7:00am, and on another occasion in the week saw them again performing, from approximately 4:00pm until almost 6:00pm. All in the interests of safety and wellbeing of the village residents.

Sutton Spotlight

The March Issue of the Spotlight hit the village streets again over the last week, and what an asset it has turned out to be. Full of information and dates for your diary, not forgetting the local gossip of course! An excellent production, which can put many top-ranking information sheets and local magazines in the shade, and all done by a talented group of community based helpers. Funded by Sutton cum Lound Parish Council, and produced by volunteers. Well done to all concerned.

House Calls

Many householders in the village received a visit from our District Councillor Darrell Pulk during the last two weeks and, on some occasions, he was accompanied by the deputy leader of Bassetlaw Council Jo White, who has been nominated as Prospective Parliamentary Labour candidate for Bassetlaw for the forthcoming general election taking place in May.

The Councillors visits were to ascertain any issues or concerns that residents may have now or in the future. District Councillor Darrell is seen in the village most weeks and notes any problems that may arise or any abnormalities that may require his attention or intervention. Recent issues being noted as mud on village roads after agricultural work taking place or any construction issues within the area. Dog fouling is a recurring problem and the appropriate steps are being taken to address this situation, which is unsightly and can become a health hazard in the community.
