4 Local Government - When Weymouth Rural District was disbanded in 1933, the north-western part of the Civil Parish of Preston cum Sutton Poyntz was separated out and placed in West Dorset. Even then it should have been obvious that this would mean that quite quickly a few Sutton Poyntz houses would be in a completely different administrative unit from the rest of the village. As a long term aspiration, it would be good to reunite the whole village, but not while that would cost the West Dorset inhabitants (whose Council Tax is currently about £200 lower like for like).

8 Local services and community facilities. We have a lovely village hall (maybe a bit small now) which has been greatly improved in recent times by village funded initiatives. We have a good well patronised pub. What more do you want? A small shop/post office and a doctor’s surgery? Unviable I suspect. Get on the bus!
