Village FaceBook Group

There is a very active Stawell and Sutton Mallet FaceBook group. If you want to join you will be asked some questions and be asked to check that you agree to the group rules.  If you do not respond to these you will not be admitted.  If you want a friend to join then ask them to do it rather than requesting on their behalf.

October Happenings and News

October MOMSS: A somewhat late (my fault) digital copy of the October edition of MOMSS has been published under the Organisations/Church menu.

Parish Council Meeting (1 November):  The agenda for the November meeting of the Parish Council is available under the Organisations/Parish Council menu.

Arts and Craft Exhibition

We would like to say a huge thank you to everyone who contributed to the exhibition at the weekend in the Village Hall, the exhibitors, all the helpers on both days, visitors and, of course, the Village Hall Committee.

Thank you also to all those who so generously donated to the Open House Project for the homeless in Street.  We are delighted to say that the total amount raised was £500. An amazing sum so thank you to you all. This is going to make a huge difference to the homeless folk in Street.

This felt like a very special event to celebrate the return to our nearly normal lives after Lockdown.

Parish Council: Minutes for the October meeting are now posted under the Organisations/Parish Council menu.

Great news that we have the long-awaited return of the HUB Cafe. Doors open at 10:30am until 1:00pm. All the old favourite drinks and eats will be available.

As a bonus, the Cafe will share the hall with the Lockdown Arts and Crafts Exhibition.

The exhibition brings together work done by members of our wonderfully creative community. If you can’t make it to the HUB Cafe then the exhibition remains open on Sunday (17th) afternoon. 

September Stuff (and heads up on October too!)

Parish Council Meeting: The next meeting of the PC will take place on 4 October. The agenda is now available under the Organisations/Parish Council menu.

Postponed due to forecast bad weather. Never fear – it’ll now take place on Saturday 9 October  

Why not go along to the yard at Manor Farm on Saturday 2 October at around 11am. Bring visitors, friends, and family and enjoy a walking quiz exploring Stawell. 

After the quiz, you can enjoy a Ploughman’s Lunch back in the yard. 

Adults pay just £5 while children go free.

 Yoga: Yoga is restarting in the Village Hall. October dates are published on the calendar.

Sad news: Karen Heffernan has had a telephone call from Rose Stabbins to let her know that sadly, her husband, George Stabbins had passed away aged 84 years. Until recent years they were long-standing residents of Stawell, George having moved here when he was just 5 years old. George regularly took part in the ploughing competitions and was well known in the local farming community. Rose and George had been married for 61 years.

The funeral is on Monday 4th October at 12.00 noon at Sedgemoor Crematorium. Family flowers only, but donations can be made to Diabetes UK.

Stawell and Sutton Mallet Lockdown Arts and Crafts Exhibition

An exciting exhibition of Arts and Crafts, produced by the wonderfully creative villagers of Stawell and Sutton Mallet during the lockdown, will take place over the weekend of 16/17 October.  

On Saturday 16th the exhibition will share the hall with the Hub Cafe and on Sunday 17th the exhibition will be open in the afternoon.

Look out for the flyer coming through your door soon which has more information and the names and telephone numbers of the organisers.

Please phone one of the organisers, or email stawellart@gmail.com, with details of your entry by 30 September. This will allow the team to plan ahead and allocate space.

Please submit your entry (or entries) to an organiser by 12 October. As this event is a celebration of the creativity and resilience of our villagers over these challenging months so entries will only be accepted from people living in Stawell and Sutton Mallet 

Although we will do our very best to look after your art or craft works, storage and exhibition will be at the owner’s risk. Work can also be brought along to the Village hall on the morning of 16th October by 9.20 a.m. by prior arrangement only.

 All exhibits will need to be accompanied by a postcard, which could include such details as: title, name if wished, medium used, for sale and any other information, for use as part of the exhibition. All pictorial artwork can be mounted, but, if framed, would need to be accompanied by a display easel if possible.

Don’t keep your talents hidden. Show us yours and we’ll show you ours! You ain’t seen nothing yet, Grayson!

Fantastic News! So good to see social events returning to the Village Hall.

With FREE ENTRY, Pizza, Good music and the bar it will be a great party.

Get it in your diary straight away. See you there 🙂
