A bit of history
We started from a survey into the amenities and facilities needed by residents 55 years of age and over in Drayton and Farlington. Following publication of the survey report in October 2002, the team formed themselves into the Drayton and Farlington Action Group to oversee implementation of the report's main findings which were:
Lack of policing
Lack of facilities for young people
Bus services needed to be improved
No access to cash points and banking facilities
Lack of useful shops: existing ones were expensive
Uneven and dangerous pavements and roads
Need for: bereavement group, drop in centre, benefits surgery, shopping service, good neighbour scheme
Need for additional pedestrian crossings
Poor library, information and leisure facilities. A library and a modern community centre were high on a list of facilities seen as needed in the area.
Some of these concerns have been addressed, but some remain as elusive as ever.
