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 so far, and those who have hosted and supported the football, darts, horse racing, afternoon tea and music concert fundraising events. Look out for more "fun"draising exciting events which the whole community can get involved with, to raise the much needed funds.
The Playground Fundraising Committee: Andy Giles, Andy Cox, Mandy Aubrey, Claire Sutton, Izzi Hazelwood, Jo Holdback, Lucy Cox, Sarah Green For more details go to our Playground Fundraising page.
Crime and Neighbourhood Watch:
Contact Penny White on 01608 663811 or by email: firstname.lastname@example.org 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
