Drayton’s Best Kept Garden Competition
Drayton Parish Council are on the look out for Drayton’s best kept garden. Working in conjunction with Taverham Nursery Centre, the Parish Council would love to hear from you if you have or know of a beautiful garden in Drayton. The garden can be either at the front or the back, a courtyard or even an arrangement of pots and window boxes – it really doesn’t matter as everything will be considered.
A judging panel of parish councillors, members of the Taverham Nursery Centre team and local horticulturists will short list and visit the best nominations to seek out their number one choice. Prizes will be awarded for the top three.
Drayton Parish Council Chairman Graham Everett said “We would love to receive as many nominations as possible. We know Drayton residents enjoy their gardens and take great pride in them. We look forward to seeing the best gardens Drayton has to offer.”
Nominations can be emailed to the Parish Council at firstname.lastname@example.org and don’t forget to include a few photographs if possible. Closing date for nominations 31st August 2018.

NORFOLK COUNTY COUNCIL proposes to make a Temporary Traffic Order affecting the Low Road from its junction with Fairview Close for 300 metres south in the PARISH OF DRAYTON because of Anglian Water works.
The road will be temporarily closed (except for access) from 23rd April 2018 to 4th May 2018 for the duration of the works, expected to be 11 days within the period.
Alternative route is via: Low Road, A1067 Drayton High Road, Hospital Lane.
We have been contacted by Drayton Farms concerning the permissive footpaths on their land.The fields known as Man in the Moon, Flax Field, Wrights 18 and Airport 24 are currently being prepared ahead of planting with Potatoes.Please note the following fields which have a permissive paths around the edge;
- Man in the Moon,
- Flax Field,
- Wrights 18
A Nematicide will be applied to the fields prior to planting and Drayton Farms request that the public are aware and to ask them to please keep themselves and their dogs on leads and off the field and to the remain on the marked paths.
The risk will be low but this Nematicide can cause illness to dogs.
Albert Bartlett, the grower of the potato crop, will be installing additional warning signage around the perimeter and at various locations on the land.
