The Parish Council acknowledge the community spirit within Sutton-by-Dover Parish and in past emergencies (like the flooding) parishioners have gone out of their way to help their neighbours. In these difficult times, please may we encourage everyone to be a ‘good neighbour’ and look out for those in our Parish who might be isolated and need practical or emotional support.

We are not expecting anyone to put themselves at risk, and there is more information and links on this Website re. current Government guidance.

Thank you
Sutton-by-Dover Parish Council
