Best Kept Village 2018

Well done! We made it through the first round of judging so please keep up the good work so that we can retain our title for another year. This year 36 villages entered the competition, which is organised by the Campaign to Protect Rural England (CPRE) and sponsored by Wilkinsons. Four villages are short listed in four categories. We are in category B – villages with a population of 1,000 to 2,000 – alongside East Bridgford, East Markham and Lowdham.


Dates for your diary

Summer Barbeque – 18th August Nags Head

Please come and join us again in the Garden of the Nags Head for our Annual Barbeque . Keep a look out for posters nearer the date with more details and timings.

Autumn coach trip – September 19th

This year we will be visiting the beautiful Cathedral City of Lincoln, one of Britain’s best loved small cities, offering a wealth of history combined with independent boutique shopping, great arts and culture and plenty of places to eat and drink. Lincoln city centre is compact enough to walk around yet has so much to explore. Whether you want to go shopping, relax with a cup of tea or dine in style, you can do it in Lincoln. Two of its main attractions Lincoln Cathedral and the Castle are in the cathedral quarter known locally as ‘uphill’. The more energetic amongst us might like Steep Hill – voted Britain’s Great Street whilst a more leisurely time might be had taking a cultural visit to The Collection or relaxing at one of the many stunning, waterside restaurants and bars.
