Our Village Neighbourhood Watch have received a number of messages about a couple of young men with Northern accents who are delivering leaflets in neighbouring villages and may be using this as an opportunity to look for places to later break into and steal. If you see anything suspicious, neighbourhood watch contacts are listed in the Village Newsletter or Cambs Police have an online reporting facility https://www.cambs.police.uk/report/Report or you can phone 101.
Next Village Newsletter
The next Village Newsletter will be published in September and the deadline to submit items is next Thursday, 20th August. If you have anything you would like included, please send it to Rachel Gardner email@example.com by next Thursday at the latest. Pictures really bring the Newsletter to life, so please include them if possible. If you are sending pictures, please send them as separate attachments (i.e. not embedded in a Word document) and please send the largest file size that you can. Low file-size photos look fine on a screen, but sadly they do not reproduce well in print.
Are you concerned about the speed of vehicles driving through our village? Village Speedwatch would welcome a few more volunteers to help them to educate drivers on the perils of speeding. In the last few weeks a Speedwatch session at Scotland Farm showed around 25% of drivers exceeding the 30mph speed limit. To find out how you can help to make Dry Drayton a safer place for all road users, please contact the Village Speedwatch Co-ordinator, Graham Carver on 019954 781806
