DryDrayton.net Village E-Mails: Traffic, Family History, Broadband and Feast Week

Dear All,

  1. Local Traffic Issues

For those of you who are keen to learn the latest news on local traffic issues – there is a public meeting of Madingley Parish Council tomorrow evening, Tuesday 9th June, commencing at 7pm at which there will be discussion about: the local configuration of the new A14 layout, road closures, congestion, park and ride for Cambridge and public transport. Linked from here is a paper for discussion on all of this, tabled by Edward Byam-Cook, the Chair of Madingley Parish Council. Clearly the issues being discussed will have an impact on Dry Drayton – so if you want to be “in the know” – 7pm Tuesday 9th June at Madingley Village Hall.

  1. Dry Drayton Feast Week – Events

From Diane Harris:

High Tea, Friday 3 July,  5 – 7 pm in the Village Hall:  Book now for a unique Feast Week event!  Dry Drayton is hosting “High Tea with the Hombrechtikon Ladies’ Swiss Choir” on Friday the 3d of July, from 5 – 7 pm in the Village Hall.  Former Dry Drayton resident and sparkling soprano, Rachel Gardner, will be visiting Dry Drayton, accompanied by the ladies of the Hombrechtikon Ladies’ Swiss Choir, to which she now belongs in Zurich.  The ladies have expressed a desire to experience a real English high tea.  In exchange, they will perform a few songs, and may even teach us ‘De Pantoffelheld’, a Swiss dialect drinking song, that requires a glass of sparkling wine!  Cakes, sandwiches, tea and (of course) sparkling wine will be served.  Tickets are £7.50 and must be booked in advance, as spaces are limited.  To book, please email da_harris_2000@yahoo.co.uk.

Fun Run, Tuesday 29 June, 6:30 pm at the school:  Don’t miss the traditional Fun Run & Walk through the village, followed by a BBQ hosted by the Black Horse Pub, on Tuesday the 30th of June, starting at 6:30 pm at the school.  Entries cost £2.50, and can be paid for in advance by emailing da_harris_2000@yahoo.co.uk, or you can enter on the night (try to arrive a little early so you can complete the entry form).
