Possible changes to local footpaths.

The Parish Council have been approached and asked for their views on possible changes to public footpaths around Rectory Farm. The Parish Council welcomes the views of residents on the proposals and will consider this at their Meeting on Tuesday 14th May 2019. Full details of possible changes, including maps, are on the Parish Council website www.drydraytonpc.org.uk. Please send any comments you wish to make to the Parish Clerk clerk@drydraytonpc.org.uk

Cambourne to Cambridge Public Transport Route – Have Your Say

With just weeks to go, the Greater Cambridge Partnership (GCP) wants people to have their say on proposals for part of a new link between Cambourne and Cambridge. The GCP Project Team has been sharing proposals across the surrounding area, with a good turn-out at Dry Drayton Village Hall on Tuesday (6th).

The Project’s Communications Lead, Laura Gates, said: “We’re really keen to get to gather views as widely as possible, in particular from those in villages close to the proposed route and P&R sites. Views will be used to shape plans for an end-to-end route and P&R site, which will be presented to the GCP Board in the Autumn for final decision. We’ll also be attending the next Dry Drayton Parish Council meeting on Tuesday 12th, so please do come along if you have any questions”.

Consultation closes on Sunday 31 March and you can respond via the paper questionnaire delivered to homes and businesses in the area or online at www.greatercambridge.org.uk/cambournetocambridge

 Dry Drayton Bag2School Collection – It’s this week –

Twice a year, in March and October, The Dry Drayton School & Village Association arranges a collection of second-hand clothing for the Bag2School scheme, in order to raise funds. We achieve an average of £300 each time. The next collection will take place during the morning of Thursday 19th March. Clean, good quality second-hand adults’ and children’s clothing, shoes, bags, belts, hats, ties, scarves, jewellery, lingerie and soft toys are all welcome. The following items, however, are unfortunately no longer accepted:-

Pillows and cushions

Duvets, bedding, blankets, household linen

Carpets, rugs and mats (including bath, shower and toilet mats)



Soiled, painted, ripped or wet clothing

School uniforms

Corporate clothing and workwear

Textile off cuts, yarns or threaded material

You should soon be receiving a special Bag2School bag through your door – but any other kind of bag can also be used, so you can carry on collecting throughout the year! The heavier the bags are the better, as Bag2School pay us per kilo… Please could all shoes be paired up, with an elastic band round them or else with the laces tied.

Please bring all bags – big and small – to the School, or leave them outside the Village Hall, as early in the morning on the 19th as you can. Collection may also be possible if you are unable to deliver. Please contact Anne Deane, the village Bag2School co-ordinator, on 01954 789622 or 07718 305141 for more information or to discuss collection. She also has plenty of additional Bag2school bags available, if you need them.

Another Bag2School collection is being planned for 8th October.

Look out – more scams, viruses etc

Most days something arrives in the e-mail box which is an obvious scam and a candidate for immediate deletion. There was one today which was a bit more subtle than most, purporting to come from the DVLA and asking me to fill in an online form to get back a refund on an earlier transaction. It all looked fairly official and believable, but the link in the message didn’t go to a government site but to somewhere obscure. Don’t be fooled by it – delete and don’t click on the link in the message.
