Welcome to your newsletter

Welcome to the Sutton Spotlight, a newsletter for the residents of Sutton-cum-Lound.

The Spotlight came about from the Sutton-cum-Lound Parish Plan, which was completed in 2010. It identified a need for a regular village update of some sort. The Parish Plan has now been superseded by the Neighbourhood Plan, but the Sutton Spotlight lives on.

The Spotlight is funded by the Parish Council, and is produced and distributed by volunteers every 3 months or so.

Every household in the village should receive a copy of the Sutton Spotlight when it is published, usually quarterly. If you didn’t get one, or have mislaid it, there may be extra copies available at the Village Hall. Alternatively, you can read it online here simply by clicking the image.

Don’t forget that this is your newsletter. If you have any comments, news, or burning issues you would like to see in the next issue then email They aim for a quarterly publication (March, June, September and December), so get them in now while there’s still room.
