Although we didn't quite make it this time, we can all be proud that our village made it to second place in the overall "Winners of Winners" section of Wiltshire's Best Kept Village Competition.
"This is a lovely village, well away from major roads and enjoying a charming location beside the river Kennet. There are several attractive buildings and it all has a very pleasing appearance
We admired the beautiful church and a very well kept churchyard and parking area.
The childrens playground is brilliant and must be the envy of villages around Wiltshire. We also admired the cricket pitch and sports field and appreciate the effort that goes into keeping them to such a high standard.
The village hall seemed good and well kept though perhaps the exterior could do with some more upkeep
The pub looked excellent and had delightful garden
We noted a commendable absence of litter and a most adequate provision of waste bins to ensure the village is kept tidy.
There are evidently many activities taking place in the village displayed on the good website
This is a most delightful village and we admired it greatly. If we did not give full marks it was only because the standard set by all the villages was so high."
