Crime prevention event in Dry Drayton on 10th May
Burglaries have been on the increase in Dry Drayton over recent years. Would you like to get some advice from the local police on simple sensible precautions you can take to make your property less vulnerable to thieves?
Dry Drayton Neighbourhood Watch have arranged for police staff to be here at the Village Church from 5.30 pm to 8.00 pm on Wednesday 10th May to give a crime prevention talk and offer individual advice. The crime prevention talk will start at 6.00pm. You will also have the chance to speak with police officers, meet our new Police Community Support Officer, discuss any local issues of concern and to purchase security products at cost price. Refreshments will be provided. This village event is part of the police Operation Hunter, which aims to reduce burgalries in Cambridgeshire.
Saving the Black Horse
News supplied by Judith Bennetton, Secretary Black Horse Steering Group.
We have 8 people making up an enthusiastic and able team to strive and save our pub. They are Adrian Bennetton, Andrew Henderson, Ed Fleming, James Adams, Judith Bennetton, Liz Challis, Rob Lunn and Robbie Hawkes. Our first meeting was on 24th April and we are meeting weekly.
We believe that the project is doable and the result will be a viable Black Horse with something for everyone. However first we must do our groundwork and that’s what we are doing now.
Raising money in a short time is one of the many challenges and there will be more about how we hope to fund the project as we progress.
What we want from you now is your enthusiasm and to spread the word that the Black Horse has been unwell but is not dead! We know there is not a big market in our small village but when we spread the word through our own families, neighbours, friends, colleagues and their networks to the world then anything can happen.
Thanks for your support.
Judith Bennetton Secretary Black Horse Steering Group

Very kind of the Neighbourhood Watch to organise the Crime Prevention Event at the Church. Unfortunately we were not able to attend but I did speak to our Community PSCO earlier, a very nice and approachable officer. I hope the event was well attended and supported. Frightening that burglaries are on the increase. My memory takes me back to watching police 5 as a child with Shaw Taylor saying “keep ’em peeled”. Thank you again Neighbourhood Watch Team!!
