Street Parish Council will be holding Public Consultations in October and November 2017 to capture your views and opinions. Dates of these consultations, together with further information, will be published shortly.

If you cannot attend the consultations, or ish to get in touch, the Neighbourhood Plan Officer is available for contact on:

The Street Society

The Street Society is a local organisation run by local people who care about the village of Street in Somerset.

The society was founded in 2001 by an enthusiastic group of people who recognised the need for a constituted body to take an interest in Street.

As the society has grown its role as a group of people who care about the future of Street has been recognised in many ways.

Whilst they seek to protect buildings of importance and record irreplaceable memories, they are not against change, hence their motto: Protecting the past with an eye to the future

It has an active membership who can take advantage of a busy social programme, which includes monthly meetings with speakers on local topics and outings during the summer months.

Parish Council and shop keepers hide bears

The shops in Street High Street have been hiding  Christmas bears for the past three weeks. Eagle-eyed children and their parents have been scouring shop windows to spot the numbers on the bears’ hats and entering  Street Parish Council’s Shop Window Competition. All the correct entries were put into a draw and the lucky winner was Levi Buxton.
“It was fun to do,” said Levi,”we went out three times to finish it, and it was even, more fun to win.”
Cllrs. Claire Axten and Nina Swift were able to deliver the festive Christmas hamper to the Buxton household in time for the big day. 
Street Parish Council would like to thank the large number of retailers who took part, particularly Crispin Crafts who housed the collection box for entries, and all those who entered.
