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

How you can help

We are delighted that the Christmas Day Lunch is back on the menu, after having a year off. This means that WE NEED YOUR HELP!  There are many jobs to assist with, from preparing, decorating and serving to clearing-up. And you can join in with the feast for free!

Three cooks have already come forward, but waiters and general helpers will be needed. The Drayton Centre will again be hosting the lunch for any local residents, who are required to pay £5 in advance. This is refunded on the day if requested.

Please ring Brian Alcock on 023 9237 7644 or call in to the Information Centre if you can help in any way.

Volunteers are always needed to assist with our various activities. Please call in at the Information Centre, ring us on 023 9238 0000, or email on This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.
