Ceilidh, Road Closure, Black Horse Etc

COMMUNITY CEILIDH TONIGHT – IT’S NOT TOO LATE….

The Community Ceilidh is TONIGHT, Saturday, in the church, at £10 per adult, £5 per child or £25 for a family. The event starts deliberately early (7pm) to cater for the whole family and will finish at 9pm.  The Cyriacs will provide music for dancing in two sessions each of about 45 minutes and, in between, there will be a light buffet and soft drinks. If you wish to, you can bring your own beer and wine.  There will be something for everyone, communal dancing (with clear instruction), a great band and the company of your community in our most historic building (as you have never seen it before).   If you’re planning to come along and haven’t reserved a ticket yet, you can still just turn up on the night.


CLOSURE – DRY DRAYTON BRIDGE OVER A14

SAD NEWS – Mrs Bunty Heffer

Jim Heffer writes to inform us of the sad news of the death of his mother, Margaret Elliott (Bunty) Heffer, on 9th November 2017, peacefully with her family.  Mrs Heffer was a resident of Dry Drayton for over 40 years. Mother of Richard, James and the late Stephen, grandmother of 7 and great grandmother of 3. Funeral 11.00 am, Saturday 2nd December at St Peter and Paul Dry Drayton.

BLACK HORSE SUPPORT GROUP NEWS from Judith Bennetton


There will be another Pop up Pub 6pm – 11pm and curry 6pm – 8pm on Friday 24th November. Lord Conrad’s brewery will provide the bar (from 6pm) and there will be medium and mild, meat and vegetarian curry with rice, naan and condiments.  Standard plates £5 and bowls £3.  Although Colin and Amanda can’t be with us we hope, around 8pm, to have some news on how their plans are coming along. November’s pop-up will be the last for 2017 as the BHSG just cannot squeeze out another.  However we’re glad to say Lord Conrad is planning on popping up in the Village Hall on 29th December from 6pm – 11pm.  Before that you’ll see his signs for the bottle shop, 11th – 17th December. Finally we don’t make a lot of profit after expenses on our pop ups but any profit we do make is helping to offset the costs of our campaign to Save the Black Horse.  Any surplus will be deposited in the Dry Drayton Community Enterprises account and used to benefit the community.’

Also a separate item ‘Volunteers to help clear undergrowth at the rear of the Black Horse, Sunday 25th November 10 am – 3pm.
The BHSG asked Colin and Amanda how the community could help them and they told us they’d really appreciate some help to clear undergrowth. There are nettles and brambles and all sorts around the pond so strong gloves and protective clothing would be advisable.  Bring secateurs and loppers and if anyone has a petrol strimmer it would be great.  Even if you just have  half an hour to spare it would help. Colin and Amanda would be grateful for any help and will provide refreshments throughout the day, 10am to 3pm. http://www.savetheblackhorse.co.uk and https://www.facebook.com/SaveBlackHorse/’

DRY DRAYTON VILLAGE NEWSLETTER

The deadline for December’s Newsletter is next Monday, 20th November. Please send copy to drydraytonnews@gmail.com

RECENT SHED BURGLARIES
 
E-Cops have written to advise us that over the last ten days there have been a number of shed and outbuilding burglaries, with power tools and equipment being targeted. Villages affected include Little Shelford, Foxton, Meldreth, Fowlmere, West Wratting, Oakington, and Haslingfield.
 
Since the clocks have gone back, darker evenings provide more cover for potential criminals.  Also consider the security of your shed even if you only store garden spades etc. inside as these may be used to prise open a door or window in order to break into your property.
