Village Clean-Up, Footpaths and Art

  1. Dry Drayton’s big clean up just got bigger.

    Thanks to interest, the Great British Spring Clean has grown from one day to two. Anyone willing to spend time picking up litter from Dry Drayton’s roadsides is encouraged to take part in one of two tidying timeslots this coming weekend:

    ·     Saturday 16th March, 10.30 – 13.00

    ·     Sunday 17th March, 13.00 – 15.30

    Both efforts start at the Church Green.

    The clean up, which is being organized by Geoffrey Isitt and Gilly Carr, is part of a month long national campaign by Keep Britain Tidy.

    Participants are encouraged to bring high-visibility vests, good boots and gloves. Black bags and picking sticks will be provided.

To take part, sign up via Doodle Poll at Doodle: Dry Drayton spring clean-up .

Safety First

It’s ten o’clock at night. The streets are quiet and dark. There are lights blazing on the bus shelter – a welcoming pool of light offering a safe haven for those waiting for the next bus. An excellent safe environment in the neighbouring village of Oakington – but this is a bus stop on the misguided busway, and you will probably have to wait there for at least another hundred days before you can catch the next bus. An interesting green initiative.
