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 Information Centre is officially closed until further notice. Emails are monitored remotely, telephone messages left on the answering machine are listened to at least once a week.


Updates on our activities:


DropNShop. We can not safely run this in the near future, and probably not until early 2021


Footcare. With the Drayton Centre closed at least until December – and maybe later – Tracey is offering home visits for those who want them, at an increased charge. Please phone or email for details.


Coffee Mornings. Since the idea is a social event in which people meet to talk, this is not feasible under current national guidelines.


Information Centre. For various reasons, the Trustees feel that the Centre should remain closed until they were confident about the safety of the staff.
