Best Kept Village Competition 2012

Published 15 November 2012

The final judgement was finely balanced between ourselves and Yoxall. We lost the trophy and first place because in May there was DOG MESS and cigarette ends on the village green. It seems the old problem has reared its head again!
The judges were delighted with the children’s posters all laminated and displayed round the village “a credit to the schools”.

Special praise was given for the areas around the Village Hall, Scout Hut, Buttercross and children’s playgrounds. The War Memorial was deemed immaculate with beautiful planters and no litter or weeds. The cricket pitch was in  excellent condition and the Millennium Playground had the “best and most varied equipment seen for many years”. The pubs were also in excellent shape, particularly The Bagot Arms, and the bus shelters were deemed well maintained.

The Parish Council would like to congratulate everyone who cleaned and spruced their properties for this years effort it is much appreciated. A big thank you to all who worked so hard.

See you next year!

Thank you, Roger Mills
