John Tufton (23 November 1773 – 27 May 1799) was an English cricketer and a Member of Parliament (MP). He was a member of the aristocratic Tufton family that produced the Earls of Thanet and related through his mother to the Sackville family that produced the Dukes of Dorset.
Molesey Matters is the only dedicated community magazine for East and West Molesey, serving the KT8 postcode, launched in September 2016.
The magazine, like the Sunbury and Shepperton editions before it, is an essential part of community life, connecting local people with local trades and businesses. We would all ideally like to use a local builder, roofer, electrician, shop in local shops, and enjoy a meal or drink on one of our local bars or restaurants. Right on the doorstep of Hampton Court and Bushy Park, the main shopping locations of Bridge Road and Walton Road serve the community well. If you want to advertise your services to the people of Molesey look no further.
Molesey Matters is run independently. It is advertising funded. Advertising costs are set at such a level as to be affordable to large and small businesses alike. For advertising in the KT8 postcode area, Molesey Matters can help.
As well as advertising, Molesey Matters carries relevant local editorial features, community news and notices as well as recipes, puzzles and useful phone numbers.
