Brexit, democracy, thieving and art

  1. Brexit

We circulated details of the public meeting held by Heidi Allen MP on 2nd July on what Brexit might mean for us. A number of people from the village attended and found the meeting useful. Heidi has posted a full video, photos, and texts from the meeting on her site at: . Events have obviously moved on since 2nd July and Heidi will be holding a similar meeting on Saturday 16 July – 3-5pm at the Imperial War Museum, Duxford. Doors will open at 2.30pm. If you wish to attend, please send an email to and confirm your full name, residential address and postcode. Confirmation of your place along with full directions and a map describing how to find the venue will then be sent to you by email. Entry to the meeting will only be available for pre-registered guests.

  1. Have your say on…..

Here is another chance to have your say on the way the country is run. South Cambs District Council are holding a public consultation on the proposed Cambridgeshire and Peterborough devolution deal. This proposal follows initial proposals by Government for a devolution deal covering the whole of East Anglia. You can have your say at: or The consultation pages take about ten minutes to complete. Consultation closes on 23 August 2016.


If you like contributing to public consultations there is another one here, the Cambridgeshire Local Assistance Scheme (CLAS) Survey. It is about a scheme which helps vulnerable people and families under exceptional pressure who have little or no money. The survey is here: . There is more about the scheme itself here: This survey will only take just 5 minutes and it closes on 3 August 2016.

If you want even more involvement in democracy at work, Dry Drayton Parish Council Meets on Tuesday next – the agenda is on the Parish Council’s website at, where you will also find the Council’s recently agreed Emergency Plan.
