Your online resource for the village of Sutton

header04 header05 header06


The parish of Sutton is situated 6 miles west of the Cathedral City of Ely, in the Cambridgeshire fens. The Parish Council has been in existence since 1895 and has 15 members serving the parish.



All village residents are invited to the Annual meeting of the electorate, 7pm on Thursday 21st March 2019 at The Glebe, Sutton.  Village organisations will be invited to have a stand to promote their club/organisation.

The theme for the evening is Timebanking.  The meeting will receive a presentation from Kate, the coordinator of Somersham and Pidley TIme Bank.  Residents will have an opportunity to ask questions, and to discuss the Parish Council setting up a scheme for Sutton.

"Time Banking is a way for people to come together and help each other by exchanging knowledge, help and skills. By helping someone do some gardening, walk their dog, water their plants etc. etc. you get an hour’s time credit which you can then use to get something back. That may be help to write a CV, learning how to hem a skirt, someone picking up a loaf of bread, getting a haircut or gaining some computer skills.

Everyone’s time is equal, so one hour of my time is equal to one hour of your time, irrespective of whatever we choose to exchange. However it’s not just about giving and receiving. Time Banking is also about bringing people together to build a stronger, safer and happier community". Somersham Timebank Website 2019
