• Margaret's Seat, high on the footpath overlooking Sutton Poyntz, has been damaged yet again. The cause of this is difficult to ascertain, and there have been suggestions of vandalism. It is however difficult to imagine that anyone would take the trouble to walk a kilometre up a steep hill just to inflict wanton damage on a couple of pieces of stone. Whatever the reason for the strange occurrences, it is to be hoped that the seat can be restored to its former glory, for there is no finer place, whatever the time of year, to sit and admire the view over Weymouth Bay.

• The Spring and Autumn Jumble Sales in the Scutt Hall are two of the prime fund raising activities for the Weymouth East Scouts and Guides. For as many years as I can remember they have been organised by Betty Hennessey, and she and her loyal band of helpers have raised many thousands of pounds in that time. Recently Betty has been finding it increasingly difficult to carry out the work. However she contacted me the other day to say how delighted and relieved she was that Mo and Dave Martin have volunteered to take on the task. They are to be commended for their public spirited response to a real need in the community, and I am sure everyone will give them all possible support. The Autumn Jumble sale will take place on Saturday 1 October, so put the date in your diary. In the meantime they would be grateful for any saleable items that you might care to donate. If you were thinking of clearing out that packed wardrobe, cupboard or groaning loft then now is the time. Gather the items together and ring Mo & Dave (836332) or Betty (833614), who will be happy to explain when the Scutt Hall is open for deliveries. Your support will help to maintain the Hall for the benefit of all our local youngsters.

• A small but vocal audience turned out for the AGM of the Sutton Poyntz Mission Hall Trust. Reports from Chairman Anthea Heathershaw and Treasurer John Allan were very positive. The hall had been used a great deal over the last year, leading to a sizeable increase in rental income, and demonstrating the worth of the facility to the local community. The windows had been painted, new external lighting installed and plumbing and water heating adjustments. The biggest improvement was the complete replacement of the ceiling in the hall, with acoustic panels employed to deaden sound levels, plus boarding above the kitchen which gave much needed storage space. The ceiling work was carried out thanks to a very generous donation from Barbara Harrison, and there was spontaneous applause when Bill Edgerton proposed a vote of thanks to Barbara. The Chairman and Treasurer were re-elected, as was Pam Dawson-Harris, the hardworking Secretary, together with the five committee members. All were heartily thanked for their efforts, and the meeting concluded with refreshment, provided, of course, by the committee!

The Osmington Speedwatch group has had a busy few weeks since they received their new replacement camera. This looks somewhat like a mobile phone but is very efficient in recording the speed of vehicles through the village. On one morning between the hours of 7 and 9am 25 vehicles were registered speeding, and one recorded speed was well over 40 miles per hour. Speedwatch is obviously helping to reduce speed of some drivers through our village, as the police have informed us that no driver has been recorded again after receiving a warning letter issued after the first occasion.
