Coming up: Duck Race – Saturday 6th May

Duck Race preparations have been underway to get Stretton’s brook running well for this years Annual Charity Duck Race.

Splash off is 4pm on Saturday 6th May, but other events will be taking place before hand with children’s face-painting, tattoos and a BBQ running at the Oak and Black Dog. Tickets can be bought in advance from the Brookside Stores or on the green prior to the race – there’s over 30 prizes including £100 cash for the first duck past the post!

New Village Website Launched

Stretton-on-Dunsmore Parish Council have created a new website. The site, launched in May 2017, aims to make it easier to find out about the village itself, events and activities going on. It also enables up-to-date information from the Parish Council as well as other organisations to be easily accessible for all.

The highly graphical design of the site showcases many magnificent views from around the village which have been provided by residents. The new site is also optimized for cross-platform viewing so works well on PCs, laptops, tablets and smart phones.
