BEANACRE and Seend are both taking part in this year’s Wiltshire Best Kept Village Competition.
Beanacre is competing with four other villages in the West Wiltshire district; whilst Seend is competing in the Kennet district, with eight other villages.
Organisers of the competition say, “Judging for this year’s Hills Group and Campaign to Protect Rural England – Wiltshire Best Kept Village Competition has just begun. The competition is once again primarily sponsored by The Hills Group.
Last year the competition was cancelled due to the Covid pandemic.
“The competition seeks to find the villages that are best looked after by their inhabitants and where community spirit is strong. It is not aimed at finding the prettiest villages but rather those where villagers make the best of their surroundings.
“Judging in the first round, within each of the four former districts of Wiltshire, will continue until mid-June.”
Winners will be announced in September.
