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.
Cases in Devon are rising generally as elsewhere in the country, but we are still lower than the national average for England. In Exeter, the number of positive cases among the student population is going up, but the number of cases among non-students are still low and is certainly below the England average. This gives a high degree of confidence that we are not seeing spread from the student population to the non-student population in Exeter. If we think about a 'ladder' of interventions and lockdown of Exeter being the top rung on the ladder, we are no where near the top yet. There are things that we can do in addition to the things that we are currently doing to help try to control that spread of the virus and hopefully avoid us getting towards the top rung of that ladder. Across Devon, levels of coronavirus are low. Cases are steady and that is largely as a result of the common sense of the people of this county. But we cannot be complacent. Please continue to observe the following:
1. keep a safe distance from others, two metres is preferable
2. wash your hands regularly and thoroughly with soap and water and use hand sanitiser where it is provided
3. wear a face covering when you’re indoors in public spaces and on public transport.
