Cllr Kenwood receives Best Kept Village runner up award 2019


Delighted to report that in only our second year of entering this competition, our village was voted runner up  in the South Kesteven district.

Despite intense challenges from other entrants we achieved a score of 140 points from a possible 150.

Maximum points were given to our:


  • Overall community effort; noting a real sense of community with the village
  • Green Spaces; evidence of bird feeders and tables, insect-friendly plants in private gardens throughout the village green with newly planted oak tree.
  • Business Premises; clean and tidy condition

Highly commended

  • Private Premises; judges noted some beautiful colourful gardens which their owners must be justifiably proud.
  • Religious Premises; our Grade 1 listed church with well maintained churchyard.
  • Public premises; Village hall and coffee mornings (visited by the judges)
  • Overall appearance and condition; clean with no litter found, additional dog waste bin.

This was a fantastic result and the Parish Council wish to thank all of the residents for their contribution.

We will strive to achieve the top slot next year
