The group runs various projects aimed at all residents of Drayton and Farlington. Its activities tend to focus on the needs of older people, but is keen also to be relevant to our younger residents. We keep in touch with other voluntary organisations and service providers. There is always interest in local developments, so we try to keep our ears to the ground.

Current projects

  • The Drayton and Farlington Information Centre
  • Management of the footcare service at the Drayton Centre
  • Provision of our Drop'n'Shop service to a local supermarket
  • A monthly "Whats On" publication, displayed in various places
  • Various social events such as lunch at South Downs College
  • Support for the free lunch on Christmas Day at the Drayton Centre, funded by local traders. Thanks and pictures of the 2017 event are here.
  • Booking appointments for free consultation with a solicitor
  • We campaign when necessary on local issues which are brought to our attention

 

We are very sorry to say that the Christmas Day Dinner at the Drayton Centre has been cancelled due to the illness of both the organiser and cook.

 

It was bound to happen! The "final" booklet in the series on local history has been followed by another one, called The Drayton Observer. This is available from the Information Centre for £3.

 

Please don't forget to bring us your used postage stamps, which help to fund the Hampshire and Isle of Wight Air Ambulance.
