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 
  • Booking appointments for free consultation with a solicitor
  • We campaign when necessary on local issues which are brought to our attention
  • Christmas Day lunch at the Drayton Centre for anyone





The Future of the Information Centre
Thursday 16th January
The Drayton & Farlington Action Group is concerned that its Information Centre is no longer providing services required by the local community. The Action Group’s other services – the Drop ‘N Shop, Foot Care and What’s On – are popular and not under threat. It is therefore holding an “open” meeting at the Church of the Resurrection Hall, Drayton at 2.30pm on Wednesday 16th to discuss whether the Information Centre is still needed. Please attend if the Centre is important to you or if you have ideas of additional services it could provide for the benefit of the people of Drayton & Farlington. If you cannot attend the meeting you can instead email us This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.

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.


The Christmas Day Lunch at the Drayton Centre  is back on the menu, after having a year off, but is now fully subscribed. We also have an army of helpers ready and waiting.
