Church car park: Grounds immaculate and litter free, shrubbery nicely maintained 20/20. Overall effort and presentation: Great achievement for a large volume of passing traffic. 20/20. Overall judges’ comments: This village is looking very well. At time of judging it was a hive of activity with painting, sweeping and planting.

Sincere thanks to everyone for making this happen, special thanks to Pat Fenlon for Trojan work and the FAS participants. It’s your village, be proud of it.
