Crime, PC, Swifts, Planning, Black Horse

DryDrayton.net Village E-Mail circulated12/6/18 and accidentally omitted from the Village Blog

More crime in the village.

Ben Jakes, Chairman, St Giles Cricket Club, Dry Drayton, writes to inform us that on Tuesday night/Wednesday morning last (between 20:30 05/06/2018- 09:20 06/06/2018) their clubhouse behind houses in Scotland Road was broken into. As well as a lot of damage, their bar stock and money were taken. As you can imagine, as a club run by volunteers only, it is very frustrating and upsetting, especially as the club facilities are enjoyed by many colts. A white van was seen leaving the ground at ~8am on Wednesday morning, by one of their neighbours.

June 2018 Parish Council Meeting

The June Meeting will take place in the Village Hall on Tuesday 12 June commencing at 8pm. The agenda has been posted on the Parish Council’s website Dry Drayton Parish Council . New councillors will be adopted and a new Chairman will be elected, following the resignation of Councillor Howard Russell.

Swift Awareness Week

Read all about the local events to mark Swift Awareness Week 16-23 June 2018 on the village website DryDrayton.net   Have you seen our Dry Drayton swifts yet?  Take some time this week in June to come along to Pettitt’s Close and watch the aerobatic displays of our swifts.  They are breeding here at the height of the summer, taking advantage of the aerial plankton (flying insects). Choose a dry warm day, not too windy – particularly before 10 am and at sunset for the best chance of seeing these charismatic birds.
