Stretton has a Facebook account:

Join our Facebook group 'Stretton-on-Fosse Online'. We have an account so that Strettonites and friends can use it for comments about the village and events, advertise events, sell or re-cycle or ask to buy items, lost and found, start conversations about what interests you about the village, suggestions for the village hall and parish council, fund-raising, post photos etc.

 

The Village Playground:

Thank you to all who have donated, and those who have hosted and supported the football, darts, horse racing, afternoon tea and music concert fundraising events.  

We have now managed to raise a fantastic £27K in about 14 months.  Your new playground is coming very soon...!

 

Crime and Neighbourhood Watch:  

Contact Penny White on 01608 663811  or by email:  pennywhite@white.star.co.uk to be kept informed. Do report anything suspicious to her or directly to the police (101 for non-emergency).

 

The parish council gets regular reports of suspicious activity and crimes from the Shipston police which can be passed on if Penny has your email address. NB you do have to send your email address to Penny – being on the parish council newsletter list is not the same thing!

 

You can also sign up to the Shipston Rural Watch for reports from the police e.g. suspicious vehicles etc at: Shipston.Rural.Watch@warwickshire.pnn.police.uk 

 

The mobile library:

There is a Warwickshire mobile library service which visits the car park of the village hall at 10.10 till 10.30 every third Friday. The next visit is on 6/7.

Each mobile service has:

  • large and small print titles

  • spoken word

  • books for young children

  • no fines or charges and free book requests

  • information on the Internet

  • local, library and County Council information screens

Access and comfort:

  • low entrance with two small steps

  • ramp at the rear for wheelchair users

  • air conditioning

 

There is also a Home Library Service. This service delivers library books to people who can’t get to the mobile library due to ill health or disability. Contact: 01926 851031. There is additional information up on notice-boards or phone Izzi (661816) and she will bring you the information.

News & What's on

 

There is a vacancy on the parish council for one councillor.

We would really like to encourage especially younger people (we are no longer classified as younger!) but if interested at any age please see the Parish Council folder on this website and contact either Izzi or Sue (clerk)
