Best Kept Village Competition 2021

Richmond Rotary Club is pleased to confirm that the Best Kept Village competition will go ahead in July.


Best Kept Village Competition 2021

For more than 10 years now Richmond Rotary Club has organised a Best Kept Village award but last year the pandemic prevented it happening.

This year however we are pleased to confirm that the competition will go ahead in July and we have already written to parish councils inviting them to nominate contestants.

Rotary Club member David Stewart is organising this year’s event and he explained the way that the contest works:  

‘We send judges to all the participating villages during the same two weeks in July and they are scored on over fifteen criteria ranging from public spaces and private gardens to the condition of bus shelters, shops, guest houses and inns. Villages without some features are not penalised. After the first scoring a second visit is organised to the front runners to be sure that the scores are fair.’ he said.

In 2019 seventeen villages took part and the overall standard was judged to be the highest ever. Moulton was the winning village and a picture of Rotary Past President Chris Kirby presenting a cheque can be seen in the photo.

Current Club President Warnock Kerr said:  

‘Richmond Rotary Club is very pleased about the contribution that The Best Kept Village contest has made to our local environment over many years. There is every reason to be proud of the area where we live and our beautiful villages well deserve the recognition that Rotary gives them through this annual competition.’
