Burglaries, A14 and Bag2School

Dear fellow villagers,

Burglaries in the Village

There has been a spate of four burglaries in the centre of Dry Drayton (Scotland Road, High Street and Cottons Field) during the last 48 hours, details not yet received from E-Cops. Entry at the unlit and unobserved  rear of premises, some during the daytime, some after dark, possibly part of a wider pattern of burglaries in local villages. What can we do about this? Greater vigilance, awareness that the stranger you have seen getting out of a parked car or walking around the village may be someone who has come here to steal. Show an interest, let strangers feel they have been seen and make a note afterwards of anything you see which is suspicious. Don’t make your own property the easiest target in your street; a darkened house in a secluded unlit garden obviously unoccupied when you are not there. And in the longer term perhaps our Neighbourhood Watch and Parish Council will need your support in any forthcoming debate about the possibility of a CCTV scheme in the village.

A14 – What’s going on

As you use the A14 you will see surveyors in fluorescent jackets everywhere, archaeological trenches and new fencing in fields and lots of heavy plant moving earth. Things are really happening – there will be a new A14 road open in 2020 – if you feel that you have lost the plot and are not sure how the A14 of the future will look or how the works are going to progress over the next 3 to 4 years, then how about an update and the chance to ask questions? There are a number of public information meetings taking place where you can drop in to get up to speed with  developments. These are at: Milton All Saints Church Hall Tues 11 Oct 2-8pm, Oakington Pavilion Sat 15 Oct 10-4.00pm, Swavesy Memorial Hall Wed 19 Oct 2-8.00pm, St Ives United Reform Free Church Thur 20 Oct 2-8.00pm and Judith’s Field Hall Godmanchester Mon 24 Oct 2-8.00pm. If you can’t get to any of these then the Highways England website for the project has maps, policies, newsletters etc to keep you briefed. It is here:  www.highways.gov.uk/A14C2H

Bag 2 School

Please help the Dry Drayton School and Village Association raise money for our village school – Bag 2 School bags will be delivered to you all for a collection taking place on Thursday 13th October.  Please use this as the opportunity for a good clear-out of your unwanted clothing, shoes, bags, belts, handbags, jewellery, soft toys etc. Fill the bags (you can add your own bags too) and drop them off on 13th at the School or Village Hall.

  1. Footpath Maintenance Volunteers Wanted – from Richard Stamford

Three footpaths in the Parish are in need of re-surfacing, at least in part. Last time I arranged a weekend which went exceedingly well but excluded those unable to attend through other commitments. I also managed to pick a wet couple of days!! So this time I propose to have an open schedule, having the material delivered as close to the works as possible and complete each path in turn on a turn up – do a bit – go home for a hot bath – return later and do some more basis.

So, in the first instance please register your interest with me, Richard Stamford on 01954780187 when you can leave a name and contact number to which I will respond to advise the detail, and ensure you are covered by the parish council’s insurance. It is hard work, but also great fun and a valuable community activity contributing to health and happiness of workers and walkers alike.

The re-surfacing materials have kindly been granted by the Cambridge Ramblers Club totally free of cost to our Parish.

I very much look forward to hearing from you!

Richard Stamford Dry Drayton PC

DryDrayton.Net Village E-Mails – film location, fabrics, A14, murder, Village Hall, Bag2School

Dear DryDraytonians All,

Some unusual and interesting communications for you below.

  1. Can you help get Dry Drayton to the Cannes Film Festival?

Zhongwei Sun writes to say: “I am a University of Cambridge MPhil student and a Wolfson member, and I am currently producing ORACLE, a London Film School MA Filmmaking graduation film. It tells the story of how the death of his donkey and the naïve faith in God of his mentally disabled son pushes a middle-aged priest into a dilemma between religious faith, life difficulties and fatherly love. We are currently busy preparing for shooting and we are now desperately looking for the following locations below:

(1)A typical (preferably old-fashioned, shabby) farmhouse in the British countryside with a dining room, bathroom, bedroom and a horse/donkey stable (2)Reception hall of a vet (or any reception hall that can imitate a vet) (3)[alternative for (1)]A typical British house situated in the countryside or in a quiet town street with a dining room, bathroom, bedroom.

We will be shooting for 11 consecutive days, including 10 days in the farmhouse and the stable, and 1 day in the animal hospital hall. The possible shooting dates are from 16 November 2015 to 26 November 2015. Is it possible to shoot our film in your village?

As producer I ensure that this is a powerful, influential story and we will be sending this film to next year’s Festival de Cannes. Do you have one of these three kinds of locations that we can come in and shoot our film? You will be listed in our credits as either “location producer”, “co-producer” or “Executive producer”. We are planning to shoot the film between late November and early December 2015.

Thank you so much! Best regards, Zhongwei Sun, Student, Producer of ORACLE” http://cambridge.academia.edu/ZhongweiSun

  1. Dry Drayton Fabric Appeal

Anne Dean asks, “Dear All, Does anyone have any fabric lying around the house that they no longer need – especially any Christmas-themed material? Margaret Wheatley, whose grandson attends the village school, would like to use it to make craft items for sale at the forthcoming “Dry Drayton Winter Wonderland” Christmas bazaar, to be held in the school hall from 3.00-5.00pm on Saturday December 5th. If you do have any fabric you would like to donate, please contact me on 01954 789622 or at deanery2@talktalk.net and I can make arrangements with you to collect it. Very many thanks, Anne Deane”

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.

Dear All,

 Roadworks will affect you if you are on the A14 after 10pm or before 6am

Amey will be carrying out resurfacing works on the A14 westbound between Junctions 31 (Girton interchange) and 26 (Fenstanton). They will also be resurfacing the carriageway on the A1307 (Huntingdon Rd) between Histon Road and A14 junction 31 (Girton interchange). They are carrying out the works to replace old and worn out surfacing at this location. They will carry out the works in two phases. Works to resurface the carriageway between junctions 31 (Girton) and 29 (Bar Hill) will start on Thursday 23 October, and subject to weather conditions they plan to finish these works by Friday 7 November. They will then start the resurfacing works between junctions 29 (Bar Hill)  and 26 (Fenstanton) on Monday 10 November and plan to finish these works by Tuesday 2 December. They will be working between 22:00 and 06:00 on weeknights only and will be closing the entire Westbound carriageway on the A14 where their staff are working.


Evaluation of possible items to be auctioned for the benefit of Medecins Sans Frontiers Tuesday, Nov. 11 at 8.15-9.15 p.m. in the Village Hall, Dry Drayton. 

The parish church is organizing a fund-raising scheme, all the proceeds of which will go to Medecins Sans Frontiers  — a charity that is doing major humanitarian work in a number of conflict zones.

Cheffins of Cambridge have kindly agreed to include a number of items in one of their regular sales (some time next Spring) that will not be subject to their usual commission. The entire proceeds will then be given to the charity. A verbal evaluation of possible items (antiques or pictures or other items that would be suitable for a Cheffins auction catalogue) will be undertaken by Mr Richard Haywood on Nov. 11.

It is suggested that individuals who are interested in this scheme bring up to six items to the evaluation — in the village hall — on the understanding that they will seriously consider offering at least one of them to the auction — with a likely value of not less than £20. [There will be no commitment made at this time, and everyone will benefit from having a verbal evaluation of a number of items.] Those considering offering more than one item will not be restricted to six items. Any enquiries to Michael Langford (19 High St, 01954-789593).
