25 January 2024 - Sutton Poyntz Garden Club Talk
We would like to invite anyone from the village who is interested in gardening to our next meeting.
This will be in the Mission Hall on Wednesday March 13th at 2.30.
We have a speaker coming to talk to us about "Seasonal Colour and Interest in the Garden".
The cost will be £3 and there will be tea and cake afterwards.
We do hope that some of the residents will find this interesting and will support this event.
Thank you and we look forward to seeing some of you.

19 February 2024 - Victorian Street Fayre
In case you hadn't seen it, this is from the Fayre Facebook page, written by Dave Langridge and Paul Caddy:
"I write this post with sadness, I and the 2022 Street Fayre committee have held off as long as possible, but unfortunately we have not been able to get enough people to form a full committee, with several key roles still remaining vacant.
Additionally due to changes in policy, access, health and safety concerns by Wessex Water we are no longer able to utilise the Waterworks area for the Fayre, this is obviously a huge blow to the running of the event.
Therefore, the committee have decided to cancel the 2024 event and have asked the residents locally what their view is on the event and to gauge interest to try again in 2025. This could be the same format, a totally new theme and format or a reduced event to cut down the impact on the manpower required to put the event on and impact on the village itself.
Please use the comments facility on the Facebook page or use Messenger within the Sutton Poyntz Victorian Street Fayre Facebook page to message the committee.
It is planned to mark the 30th Anniversary of the Street Fayre in the summer of 2024 in some way, all residents and supporters will be welcome to attend.......more details to follow on this page.
Thank you to all who have supported this event in the past we have thoroughly enjoyed putting the event on."
