There are a number of regular meetings of clubs and societies around the village. Some of these meet locally at the Village Hall, whereas others generally meet outside the village. We have a few of these here, but see the Sutton Village Hall Calendar for those that meet at the Village Hall.

See a list of the regular groups and clubs meeting at the Village Hall in a typical month.

The village news items generally contain details of when and where meetings take place. The easiest way to stay informed about these is to sign up for our email updates.

Sutton has it’s own Gardening Club in conjunction with Barnby Moor, which meets in Barnby Moor Village Hall, Kennel Drive, Barnby Moor, DN22 8QU on the first Tuesday of the month at 7:15pm.

We are a very friendly and supportive group, so if you are new to the area, or new to gardening, we would love to see you. You do not need to be an expert at gardening, we all learn from each other and our guest speakers.

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/coffee. There is usually a fun quiz, a raffle with exciting prizes and there is a licensed bar.

Why not come along and meet friends old and new in a friendly and relaxed atmosphere?

For anyone new to the village this is a great way to “MEET THE NEIGHBOURS” and find out all that goes on in and around the village.
