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.
