Community Grants
So far three organisations within the village have applied for and been awarded a grant by the Parish Council. All Saints’ Church, the Village Hall and Stretton Scouts have all benefited from the new grant policy. All applications should be submitted to the Clerk and will be reviewed at the next public Parish Council meeting. To download the application form visit the Parish Council Documents page.

Fixed Assets
There will be a few improvements being made in Plott Lane Playground over the coming months, including the installation of a new basketball hoop! The contractor has made the necessary repairs to the bus shelter on Brookside. The Parish Council are considering some significant improvements to the pavilion and garage on Fosse Way, therefore it is seeking volunteers to join a working party/committee to develop a longer term plan to refurbish or rebuild the pavilion to make it a more functional and aesthetically pleasing building. So if you have some ideas or are interested in being involved in this project please contact Cllr Paul Gordon 02476 542850  paul.and.jan.gordon@gmail.com

Local Plan
As you may be aware Rugby Borough Council have sent their Local Plan to the Secretary of State, with a recommendation to build on two sites in Stretton, Little Orchard (Plott Lane) and the field behind Squires Rd. The Parish Council are keen to hear the views of residents on the current proposals set out by RBC, click here to view the proposals. Please email or write to Helen Stewart the Parish Council Clerk.

Save the Date
The Annual Parish Social and Annual General Meeting will take place on Monday 14th May 2018 in the evening. This is an opportunity to enjoy a few nibbles and drinks, speak to your Parish Councillors in a less formal setting, and receive an update on current agenda items, or raise new ones.

Please note there will not be a meeting in December, the next public meeting will be on 8th January 2018.

Don’t forget Friday 1st December – Stretton Christmas Fayre and Light Switch On
