29 October 2023 - Victorian Street Fayre 2024 in danger of not going ahead
Dear Sutton Poyntz Village
The open meeting held on Friday 27th October to discuss the Sutton Poyntz Victorian Street Fayre unfortunately did not result in a committee to run this event in 2024.
Therefore if you want to help and run a committee please e-mail David Langridge
28 October 2023 - Mission Hall News - Music and Ploughman's
Being held on the 17th November in the Mission Hall, the Mission Hall Trust Fundraisers invite you to join us at 7.30pm for an evening of music provided by a variety of musicians coming from near and far to entertain us. We originally thought this would be an 'open mic night' but this plan changed and we now have a wonderful line-up of selected artists who have generously agreed to play for us.
The evening, which will be compèred by our very own impresario Rick Potter, will include in the line-up some familiar professional artists including Ken Watkins, Rob Ryan and David Gordon plus Damaris Fowler, Hedley Stone, Bob Willows and from further afield, Kusameh Omala and Lloyd Davis.
So come along and relax, bring your own drinks and immerse yourselves in an evening of lovely music and a great supper in a convivial atmosphere.
Tickets are available from Bill Egerton 01305 833728 or Maureen Morris 01305 835533.
24 October 2023 - Victorian Street Fayre 2024
David Langridge has organised an Open Meeting in the Mission Hall on Friday 27th October at 7pm.
For those new to the village, David will explain all about the Fayre and how much it raises for local charities. He will also explain all the roles needed and of course be looking for volunteers for the committee roles.
Please come along to learn more and get more involved in the event...........if of course we want to run it again?!
24 October 2023 - Neighbourhood Plan
The Weymouth Neighbourhood Plan has reached the stage of formal public consultation, and will commence on Friday 27th October with responses required by Friday 8th December. This "Regulation 14" consultation is done before the Neighbourhood Plan (modified if necessary in the light of the consultation responses) is submitted for Inspection. If approved by the Inspector, the Plan then goes to referendum, when all the people in the Weymouth Town Council area can vote on whether to adopt the Plan.
Copies of the Neighbourhood Plan, along with other relevant documents, are available at https://www.weymouthtowncouncil.gov.uk/neighbourhood-plan/ If people remember, there is a Sutton Poyntz Neighbourhood Plan. This will be replaced by Weymouth's Neighbourhood Plan, if it is adopted, but it was Weymouth Town Council's intention that the policies in our previous Neighbourhood Plan should be "included and respected" in the new Neighbourhood Plan, and the Weymouth Neighbourhood Plan includes an appendix explaining how this is done. Our Neighbourhood Plan is available at https://suttonpoyntz.org.uk/index.php/our-village/environment/planning?start=2
People should perhaps be made aware that at the Town Council meeting on the 18th October, all three Councillors representing Preston and Sutton Poyntz voted against the Neighbourhood Plan going forward to consultation. We are sure our local Town Councillors would be happy to provide their reasons, if asked.
