Best Kept Village Competition

Home » News » Best Kept Village Competition

Church Minshull has entered a number of categories in this years Community Pride Awards, run by Cheshire Community Action.

The headline award is the 'Best Kept Village' category and judges are visiting Church Minshull on Tuesday, 12th May 2015 to assess our entry against the award criteria.

Litter picks and footpath cleaning has already taken place in most areas, but householders and residents are asked for their support, by trimming hedges which overgrow the footpaths and picking up any loose litter they may see, along the way.

Surprisingly, along the footpaths, there were many instances of dog fouling, so please, dog owners...ensure any fouling is cleaned up straight away.

Your support in this initiative is really appreciated and hopefully the judges will recognise this too, when it comes to the awards in October 2015.

Other categories entered are:

  • Best Website
  • Community Champion
  • Best Newsletter
  • Young People
  • Best Initiative

Well last time we forgot to wish you all a "Happy New Year" — sort of deliberately because as far as dogs are concerned the new year is only just starting. What do I mean — well hang on and I'll tell you!I'm dictating this to himself at the end of January and we were both saying this morning how finally we are starting to see the mornings getting lighter when we are out for a...
