The village has its own journalist who collects information on forthcoming events, edits them and has them published into the weekly Retford Times.

This is a free service available for anybody in the village who would like to publicise an event.

All you have to do is send an email to with your event details and they will do the rest. A few things you may want to include:

  • Your Name
  • Your Telephone Number
  • The Name of Your Event
  • The Date and Time of Your Event
  • A Description of Your Event
  • Any flyers or posters

Now, how hard can that be?

Please note that the Village Journalist retains absolute discretion over event descriptions, size and editorial content.

Due to editorial and publishing constraints please make sure that any requests are submitted by 12:00noon on the Monday prior to the Thursday Retford Times issue. Requests made after this time may not appear.

Also, the Retford Times reserves the right to publish certain content, so your entry may not appear.

Want something publicising?

Don’t forget, if you have any event or item of interest for the village, just email it to and our resident website monitor will do his best to accommodate you. All posts go out to our increasing list of email update subscribers as soon as they’re published.

We also have the Sutton Spotlight, which goes out to every house in the village on a quarterly (ish) basis. Space is sometimes limited, so try to get your entry in early.

We’re also lucky to have a village Journalist who collates news and updates for the Retford Times on a weekly basis. Get your copy in on Monday morning for the Thursday issue.

All our website updates are also sent down the village “X formerly Twitter” feed, @SuttonCumLound. So, follow us there for these and other items in and around our area.

The Parish Council has a Facebook presence for all things of a council nature. Contact the Clerk if you want anything on this feed.
