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.

Great news – The Black Horse is having its very first Pub Quiz. It will be held on Wednesday 9th September 2009 starting at 7:00pm, 5 members per team. The winner will take away 2 bottles of their house Merlot/Chardonnay or Rosé.
There may be disruptions to post later this week – there is a 24 hour all out strike within the Mail Centre on Clifton Road Cambridge on Thursday. Morning deliveries will not be affected on Thursday, but their may be a reduced amount of mail on Friday. The strike commences on Thursday 18th September at 6am until Friday 19th September at 6am.
The agenda for the next Parish Council Meeting has been posted on their Site.
For village bibliophiles, further progress is being made with the new Central Library in Cambridge – as you can see from the photo below the wooden hoarding has been removed from the library entrance on the first floor of the Grand Arcade.
Tonight my partner and I tried out the food at the newly opened Black Horse pub in Dry Drayton.
The Milton ale was excellent.
We were given a very pleasant welcome by the new team and a discreet table for two just off the main bar area. A good range of food was on offer – we went for the chicken and smoked haddock dishes, not quite knowing what to expect. The food was served promptly and was beautifully presented. It tasted as good as it looked, and both our dishes were full of flavour, perfectly cooked and absolutely first class. Portions were a good size for real cuisine, leaving us with room only to share a sweet. The creme brulee was served with fresh fruit and cream, again looking and tasting delicious.
The new team have clearly taken on an excellent chef. Our advice – visit soon. In a few weeks when word gets around about Dry Drayton having a gastropub and what is on offer here, you will only be able to get a table by booking up well in advance. We couldn’t recommend a better village pub for an evening meal. Brilliant.
