What we Do

Political Affiliations

Church Stretton Town Councillors aim to do their best for the community as a whole, without recourse to Party Political affiliations.

Grants and Donations

The Town Council makes grants/donations to local organisations and projects such as the Arts Festival, Christmas lights, Silvester Horne Institute. Applications should be made to the Town Council in the first instance. 

The Community Events and Festivals Fund provides initial seed funds to organisers in order to encourage a programme of year round events and festivals in the town. Application Forms and Guidance Notes can be downloaded here.
