Crime prevention event in Dry Drayton on 10th May
Burglaries have been on the increase in Dry Drayton over recent years. Would you like to get some advice from the local police on simple sensible precautions you can take to make your property less vulnerable to thieves?
Dry Drayton Neighbourhood Watch have arranged for police staff to be here at the Village Church from 5.30 pm to 8.00 pm on Wednesday 10th May to give a crime prevention talk and offer individual advice. The crime prevention talk will start at 6.00pm. You will also have the chance to speak with police officers, meet our new Police Community Support Officer, discuss any local issues of concern and to purchase security products at cost price. Refreshments will be provided. This village event is part of the police Operation Hunter, which aims to reduce burgalries in Cambridgeshire.
Saving the Black Horse
News supplied by Judith Bennetton, Secretary Black Horse Steering Group.
We have 8 people making up an enthusiastic and able team to strive and save our pub. They are Adrian Bennetton, Andrew Henderson, Ed Fleming, James Adams, Judith Bennetton, Liz Challis, Rob Lunn and Robbie Hawkes. Our first meeting was on 24th April and we are meeting weekly.
We believe that the project is doable and the result will be a viable Black Horse with something for everyone. However first we must do our groundwork and that’s what we are doing now.
Raising money in a short time is one of the many challenges and there will be more about how we hope to fund the project as we progress.
What we want from you now is your enthusiasm and to spread the word that the Black Horse has been unwell but is not dead! We know there is not a big market in our small village but when we spread the word through our own families, neighbours, friends, colleagues and their networks to the world then anything can happen.
Thanks for your support.

The Village Pub and other strategic issues – keeping up to date

Litter Picking – from Annie Harley.
Thank you to everyone who helped with the litter pick on Easter Saturday. Between us we collected 16 bags of rubbish. Special thanks must go to the Isett family who cleared the area within the 30 mph limit at Scotland farm. Judging from what they found, it hadn’t been cleared for a very long time. Thanks must also go to Miriam who walked past the Village Hall as we were assembling, and immediately volunteered to help, and to the Irishes, who cleared Oakington road with me, and then turned out again two days later to clear Five Bells corner by the A 14 – which was briefly pristine, before the coffee cups and drinks cans appeared again. Prize find of the day was a functioning I-pad, found in the gutter in Oakington Rd and now returned to its very relieved owner.
I know several others regularly pick rubbish up as they come across it, so I hope that with everyone’s help we can keep the village looking smart all summer. Annie Harley
Crime in the Village
We continue to receive the unwanted attention of thieves. Between 7pm on 15/04/2017 and 3.30pm on 19/04/2017 at Scotland Road, Dry Drayton, a burglar forced entry to a shed and stole two lawn mowers. Please be vigilent and report anything of concern to our village Neighbourhood Watch representatives.
