Some of you will have seen that the traditional road sign at the Junction of Main Street, Appletree Lane and

This project has been lovingly master minded by Charles Lees and Grahame Barnes-Moss.  I think we will all agree that they have done splendid job which will last for many years to come.  Thanks also to David Frusher for the oak, Luke Wilson for cutting the oak and, of course Harry the cat for checking the spelling.

‘We tried very hard to establish WI in the village but I have to let you know that it didn’t work out. There were only 12 of us in the group and as a whole we decided that it wasn’t what we wanted and that it wasn’t the right fit for the village so no WI, we didn’t want to be tied by constitutional rules and requirements and we also felt we wanted to be inclusive to all. 

We thought that we could have a village group where everyone can take part and we can organise activities, get together, whatever comes up. There are no details or information at the moment but if you have any ideas and would like to be part of setting up the new group please get in touch.’

Open Gardens
The idea has come up again of having an Open Gardens day / weekend in the Village next year.

The idea is for as many people in the Village as possible, to open up their gardens, and for one of them to sell cream teas.  Several people have already agreed to this but we would love to have more!  If you are interested in this or if you have any ideas about it, please leave a comment on this website.

A Message from Our Postie:
Hello everyone, I’m Ray your postman and would like to say a big thank you to you all for welcoming me as your new postman after I took over from David.  Last year in June I collapsed in the Main Street and was lying there for about 3 quarters of an hour until I was found by Vicki down Blacksmiths Lane.  I started back last December, no reason could be found by the doctors but I’m ok now and am looking forward to serving this lovely village until I retire.  All my best wishes to you all and if I can help in any way please give me a shout, regards Ray the posty.

Wells in the Village
Martin M is trying to record the whereabouts of all the wells that were/are in the village.  If anyone has any information he’d be very grateful to hear it.  A note through 8BC or a comment here will get to him.  He’s aware of the well in the school field; one beside the presbytery garage, one in the now filled in presbytery cellar, one in the garden of 3BC, and one in 22PC.  Any others?  Old Tom Smith said that the last well to run dry in a drought was down on the railway, where precisely, Martin doesn’t know.  Are there any others?

  1. Sue,

    I have been told that I can have a static Poppy Box, please could you alert people! If they felt like it they could come here to get poppies.
    Many thanks and love from Debby T.

  2. Kings Sutton Bridge Club
    Could we have a line or two in your newsletter to advertise our club and a course for Beginners’ at Bridge?

    1. Hi Ken,
      Sorry I didn’t reply before, everything’s been a bit mad here organising our Scarecrow Trail Event! I will definitely put your notice on this website and in our next newsletter if there’s enough space for it.
