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.
At the Annual General Meeting of the Parish Hall on 25th May 2017 members of the community present were invited to express their views in respect of arrangements for Village Day 2017.
After comments from the Chairman and members of the community the chairman requested each person present to cast a vote for one of the following:
1. Village Day to take place in the Parish Hall
2. Village Day to take place at Manor Farm
3. Village Day to take place at Mewstone Paddock
4. Village Day to be postponed until 2018
By a majority decision it was decided to postpone Village Day until 2018 due to the lack of time available to prepare and conclude arrangements for Village Day to be successful.
Like so many events, limited support and reliance on a few community members to organise and arrange community events comes to a point where inspiration dries up and new ideas are needed.
It is hoped the new Parish Hall committee will be able to present their ideas to the community soon.
The weather and everyone involved helped to make Strete Village Day a success.
A fabulous turnout from the community and visitors. So much fun had by all.
The children's sports events were well supported and everyone was a winner.
Thanks to so many who helped on the various stalls to make it such a great event.
