Welcome to the official website of Strete in Devon, England, which is managed by Strete Parish Council. Strete is about a fifteen minute drive from Dartmouth. It is to be found on the high coastal ground at the eastern end of Slapton Sands. It's a good place to stay if you like exploring the local beaches and is also convenient for Kingsbridge, Totnes and Salcombe. Strete is situated on the South West Coastal Footpath and, with a variety of accommodation in the village, it is an ideal location to take a break in your journey. Take time to relax and enjoy the beautiful AONB surroundings.
A great day out was had by 17 from Chillington, Stokenham and Strete.
The Coleridge Bus started out from Chillington and stopped in the Kings Arms car park for light refreshments in the Kings Arms before setting off with those joining from Strete to Sandy Park, Exeter.
Raffle tickets were sold on the way to Exeter with the draw on the way home after the game.
Over £50 was taken and was handed to Rebecca at the Kings Arms as part of her haircut challenge for the Macmillan Charity.
Dan Bly was the winner of Sunday lunch for two at the Kings Arms.
The Chiefs were back to their winning ways although the last twenty minutes Harlequins started to show their metal. An excellent game and a good result for Chiefs
Rugby fans will know about the outstanding performance of Exeter Chiefs last season.
Their season is about to kick-off and a day out is being arranged by David Grice for those who might be interested in travelling to Sandy Park by bus to see the Chiefs play Harlequins on Saturday 17th September.
David currently has 10 who are interested but ideally needs 20 for the option of using the Coleridge bus departing from the Kings Arms at 12:30 - 1:00pm for a 3pm kick off.
Seated tickets are expected to be approximately £30.00 with Coleridge bus transport costs in the region of £10-£15 dependent upon numbers.
The alternative could be a 12 seater mini bus from Strete to Totnes and then the train to Exeter.
This might result in a slight increase in transport costs.

David needs an urgent response by Wednesday 31st
August in order to book tickets.

Whilst the telephone box close to the village shop / post office is no longer able to provide the facility to make telephone calls, the telephone box is now owned by the Parish Council on behalf of the community.
The Parish Council considered the telephone box to be a community asset of historical and conservation interest, as well as as a tourist attraction, for future generations.
However, although purchased from British Telecommunications for £1, the telephone box is in need of some urgent restoration work.
The Parish Council wish to appeal to those DIY enthusiasts in the parish who may be willing and have time to help put together a programme of restoration works.
All materials will be provided by the Parish Council to re-furbish and upgrade the telephone box with the objective of having it completed as soon as possible.
Anyone interested, please contact Councillor David Rothwell on 01803 770322.
