In past years there were two Friendly Societies or Sick Clubs, usually known as The Club, which were run from The Bell Inn and the Three Tuns pubs (both now closed) The Club Feast was held on Whit Monday when members paraded with a brass band to the Church for an 11am service. The vicar was paid a golden sovereign for his sermon and invited to the Annual Meeting and Dinner at The Bell. The custom of the Feasts ceased in 1912.

Factoids.......Always shown opposite, these factoids are all taken from the book about King's Sutton which was published in 1993. It opens with the rhyme... King's Sutton is a pretty town,
And lies all in a Valley.
There is a pretty ring of bells,
Besides a bowling alley.
Wine and liquor in good store,
Pretty maidens plenty.
Can a man desire more?
There aint such a town in twenty.
