Dear All, 

  1. Super fast broadband for Dry Drayton

This crept a stage closer last weekend with the successful laying of the fibre optic cabling beside the A14. More work is being done on local cabinets before a brief commissioning period, then go-live. Go-live is still scheduled to take place before the end of June, but the latest news may mean a couple of weeks shaving off that date.  We will keep you posted.

  1. Annual Parish Meeting

This will take place on Tuesday 19th May 2015, commencing at 7.00pm, refreshments at 6.45pm, in the Village Hall. The agenda is on the Parish Council’s new website at www.drydraytonpc.org.uk

 4. Village Coffee Morning – Election Day

Anne Deane writes: “village coffee will be taking place on the morning of Thursday 7th May after all. We are unable to hold it in the Village Hall, because of its being used as a Polling Station for the General Election. However, the church has very kindly stepped in and offered do coffee in the Parish Church that morning instead – and I understand that they will also be doing tea and cakes from about 3.00pm in the afternoon, so that parents and children can pop in after school”.

 5. Dry Drayton Village Newsletters

A local resident had an amazing find last week of old issues of Dry Drayton Village Newsletters. This enabled us to add several issues to the run of these held in the Cambridgeshire Collection. We are still missing around 40 of the earlier issues. You can see which ones have been deposited and which are missing on the village website at: http://www.drydrayton.net/newsletter.asp  If you are having a clear-out or spring cleaning the loft and you come across any old copies of the newsletter, please let us know.
