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”.

A reminder from the village Neighbourhood Watch – please remain vigilent both during the longer hours of darkness and during daylight and report any suspicious activity. In recent weeks there have been distraction burglaries in other villages during the daytime, and shed burglaries at night also feature. One local resident has reported suspicious activity by a couple of men in a landrover shining a red laser light across fields in the village, and we understand there have been attempted break-ins at one local Dry Drayton business.

Another burglary in the village – Between 10:00am and 1:00pm on 13/09/17 at Oakington Road, Dry Drayton. Unknown offender has forced entry into a property via the front door and was then scared off by the dog left inside.

Cambs police warn of a spate of tool thefts in South Cambridgeshire recently. Most of these have been thefts from vans but they have seen a couple of building sites broken into. If you notice any suspicious behavior then please call 101, or 999 if you see a break-in in progress. And police are advising that you look after your tools, store them securely, mark your tools, park vehicles containing tools sensibly, and report to them any “dodgey deals” involving tools for sale.

Saving the Black Horse

In case you have not heard, below is the latest update from Judith Bennetton on behalf of the Black Horse Steering Group.

Many of you will have seen or heard that the lease of the Black Horse has been sold.  We understand from the Agent that the new owners have “shown a keen interest in the campaign to save the Black Horse” so they will know about the results of our survey in June and we are encouraged by that.  We will pass on all your comments (anonymously) and are sure that, with our support, the new leaseholder(s) can be off to a very good start.

Make a note of the next pop up pub (with food) in the Village Hall on Saturday 30th September.  All welcome.
