We did it! Three years on the trot, winners of the Best Kept Village competition.
This year not only did we compete against our local villages in East Staffordshire but we also were in competition with
villages from the Moorlands, so the efforts by all of the Village to win this accolade means even
The new sponsors of the competition, Lafarge, are the providers of the post and subsequently the design is based on their logo. Many of you will have noticed this new plaque does not have our previous winning plaques on it; we have asked that this is rectified and our last three winning plaques also be affixed.
It was with great pleasure to receive the award from the Judges on the morning of the 5th October, where so many of the people and groups who helped make this happen turned out to watch the presentation.
It goes without saying that winning such an accolade takes enormous effort and a special thanks must go to all the groups and individuals that helped keep areas of the village tidy throughout the competition. Judges specifically commented on Abbots Bromley's ability to involve so many people in the efforts. A big thank you must go to all the children at Richard Clarke First School and Abbots Bromley School for all of the wonderful posters they produced and also to those who placed a BKV poster in their windows along the main road, we do get points awarded for this and this year it was noted by the judges that we had a good show of posters on display.
We'll need to put in a massive effort next year if we are to retain the award for a 4th year but let's go for it!

Election Deadlines for UK Parliamentary Election on Thursday 12 December 2019:
The Staffordshire countryside will see around 100 festive tractors take to the road in a charity Christmas convoy on the evening of 8th December.
Arranged by South Staffs Water and Staffordshire Young Farmers Clubs, the cavalcade of tractors will be lit up
with Christmas lights on the evening of 8 December and will travel a 20-mile route through the villages of Hamstall
Ridware, Abbots Bromley, Blithfield and Colton.
The event is being held in aid of three charities; WaterAid, Staffordshire Young Farmers Clubs and The Royal Agricultural Benevolent Institution.
Nina Yiannoukos-Benton, senior catchment advisor at South Staffs Water, said:
“We work really closely with the Staffordshire Farmers, to make sure their work doesn’t affect the quality of the river water and in turn, the water that we treat and provide to our customers, so it’s amazing to be involved in arranging this tractor run. It’s going to be a lot of festive fun, as well as raising money for three important charities. We want everyone to get involved; come and watch the convoy along the route or join the festivities at the finish held at Cowley Hill Farm, Hamstall Ridware.”
