1. Dry Drayton Big Forest School
As you may have read in the July / August Village Newsletter, Dry Drayton School is committed to providing a forest school experience for every child. The S and VA is fully supportive of this initiative and is now actively fundraising to help with the facilities needed. You can read all about the initiative here:http://www.drydrayton.net/svaforest1.asp and the S and VA would very much welcome donations towards this excellent initiative. So far around 47% of the necessary funding has been raised.
2. Do you feel safe and secure in Dry Drayton?
You are invited to take part in an important community safety survey by the South Cambridgeshire Community Safety Partnership (CSP). This is made up of representatives from South Cambs District Council, Cambridgeshire County Council, Police, Fire and Rescue Service, the NHS and Probation Service, who work together to deal with local crime and anti-social behaviour issues. This survey aims to collate information from the public on perceptions of safety within their communities. This survey is extremely important in the current climate where the Covid-19 pandemic prevents face to face community engagement. The results of this survey will directly affect the way in which community safety in certain geographical locations is prioritised among the statutory bodies within the South Cambridgeshire Community Safety Partnership. Closing date Sunday 26th July 2020. The survey has 19 questions and will take about ten minutes to complete. It is here: https://www.surveymonkey.co.uk/r/SouthCambsCSPSurvey2020

St Michael’s Church Longstanton
Longstanton residents are fundraising to promote the profile of St. Michael’s Church (which is technically redundant) and the need for its ongoing maintenance and upkeep. They have a limited calendar due to the nature of the building, but have been successful in garnering community engagement regarding this beautiful old building. There is an open invitation to Dry Drayton residents to come to their Michaelmas Harvest Fair on Sat 28th September. The Fair starts at 1pm and among other things you can do some cupcake decorating. The invitation has originated from Narelle Hassell, Secretary, Friends of St. Michael’s Church firstname.lastname@example.org
