Wiltshire Best Kept Village Competition 2021

Invitations have now been sent to all Parish Clerks in Wiltshire, encouraging their villages to enter this year’s CPRE Wiltshire and The Hills Group Best Kept Village Competition.

General information about the Competition can be found here

We recognise that the impact of the Covid pandemic could affect the Competition.  However since all activity is outside, preparation need not involve groups of people, and judging doesn’t begin until mid-May we are confident that it can run as usual this year.

The invitation has been emailed to parish clerks together with supporting documents: the entry form, entry guidelines, an example map and “Judges’ Top Tips”.  We hope that entries will be sent by email (although post is acceptable).  All judges have said that they are happy to receive entry packs by email and we hope that the use of paper will be minimised, if not non-existent.

Although the invitation has been sent to Parish Clerks, anyone in a village can organise the entry.  They just have to volunteer to do so to their Parish Council, to avoid the possibility of a duplicate entry.  If in any doubt, please contact the CPRE Wiltshire office.
