The Sutton Poyntz Society is affiliated to the Dorset Group of the CPRE (Campaign to Protect Rural England), and also to the Weymouth Civic Society.

Both these bodies share with us a remit for conservation of the natural and architectural beauty of the area we live in.

The village of Sutton Poyntz has also worked closely with the Dorset AONB (Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty); in particular both the History Group and the Biodiversity Group worked with and for the AONB's South Dorset Ridgeway Heritage Project. Initial funding for this website came through the Dorset AONB.

Our Biodiversity Group is working closely with Wessex Water's environmental team to protect and improve the natural habitat provided in the waters and woodlands behind the Water Museum and Pumping Station.
