Village of the Year 2011 underway

Thursday, 30 June 2011 13:30

We are grateful to Francoise and Nigel for having answered our plea for more judges. Wilfred and Jean Smith have stepped down after a decade of walking the Avonside streets; who knows, in a few years from now they may find it possible to view churchyards and playing fields without awarding marks out of ten.

We are disappointed that only seventeen entries have been received, three fewer than 2010. Nearly half are from South Gloucestershire, North Somerset villages are the least represented.

The entry papers are with the judges who will visit the competing villages sometime before the end of July.
The adjudication meeting of judges is scheduled for 17th August and the results will be notified to the villages in the following week.
