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.
