Report it!

20 is plenty

The Parish Council has no jurisdiction over parking or speeding but it continually tries to combat the recurring problems in these areas by keeping in close contact with Warwickshire Police. It has corresponded with our PCSO on several occasions regarding these issues. In addition to this, the Parish Council has invested in signage and strategically placed planters to encourage drivers to slow down and park with consideration. It has also been instrumental in the implementation of the Community Speed Watch Team who regularly monitor traffic in Stretton and Princethorpe, and report speeding vehicles to the Police. Residents with concerns about, parking, speeding or other anti-social behaviour or any criminal activity are encouraged to contact the Safer Neighbourhood Teams on 01788 853851 or via 101.

Make way for the Ducks!

Saturday 11th May 2019 – with family fun on the Village Green from 3pm.
Traditionally the Duck Race was organised to raise money for a variety of local charities, with this in mind the profits this year will be shared between 1st Stretton on Dunsmore Scouts and Myton Hospice. The fabulous folk of The Oak and Black Dog, have been raising funds over the last few months in memory of Alice Roberts therefore £500 of the total raised at the Duck Race in 2019 will be donated to Myton Hospice.

Successful Litter Pick Morning

Thanks to all those who attended the Community Litter Pick on March 16th. 68 people of all ages helped to fill over 25 black bags with litter picked from all over the village. Multiple car parts and other debris were retrieved from the ditches on Fineacre Lane, Freeboard Lane and Rugby Lane and over 65 bacon batches were served from the Scout Hut in Plott Lane Park to those who had braved the windy weather all morning.

Special thanks to Nicki Haywood for arranging the event, and co-ordinating the volunteers on the day with Paul Gordon. Also thanks to Tim Bench for supplying the black bags and disposable gloves. Finally to Fiona Haden, Helen Stewart and Vicki Ledger for their help in preparing and cooking the bacon batches and to the Scouts for allowing the use of their facilities.
