Dear Drayton Resident,

I’m writing on behalf of Norwich City Community Sports Foundation to invite the residents of the Parish of Drayton to an Open Day at The Nest, our new community sports hub on Holt Road.  –  more information can be found here: https://www.communitysportsfoundation.org.uk/news/open-day-nest

We’re really keen to share what we’ve achieved so far and to hear the views of local residents on what they’d like to see happen next.   With this in mind, I am also inviting parishioners to tell us what they think about The Nest using this survey:
