The judges commented particularly favourably on the condition of the church its cemeteries and war memorial, the cricket and recreational ground, Three Trees and the Old Red Lion and the Foxhole conservation area. They were pleased to note that a school cricket competition was in progress at the time of judging and they felt that the parish hall had been sympathetically extended and was a good village facility. They were also impressed with the high standards of maintenance of our green areas, bus shelters, and notice boards.

 

Their final comment was “Overall we were impressed with the sense of community that is evident in the village and the high standards throughout.” In fact we scored the 3rd highest score ever, with 89, the top score being 92.

 

The Parish Council would like to extend their thanks to all those who strive to keep our village neat and tidy with a special round of applause to the Village Improvement Committee (VIC), who are out most weekends and in all weathers working to ensure the village always looks its best.

VIC is always in need of more volunteers. If you have some week-end time on your hands and would like the equivalent of a good work-out (free of charge), please ring either Ray Kettle on 261523 or Chris Leech on 261416.
