Best Kept Village – another win
Published 6 October 2016
At a ceremony held by the Jubilee Seat at 6pm on 30th September, Kings Bromley were presented with the Best Kept Village Trophy for the Lichfield and Cannock District for the fifth year in a row. Parish Council Chairman Allan Howard welcomed villagers and guests including Janet Eagland, Chair of Staffordshire County Council, Cllr David Salter, Chair of Lichfield District Council and his wife Pam and Chris Welch, Chief Executive of the Community Council of Staffordshire. Allan thanked the Councils for their continued support for the Best Kept Village competition in the current climate of cutbacks. John Perry, Chairman of the BKV Working Group, then gave his remarks on behalf of the Group and the judges; once again praise was given for the way the Church and its surrounds were maintained, the quality of the posters produced by the children of the Richard Crosse School which were displayed in the Village Hall and the general state of the public spaces and private house fronts. Janet Eagland then presented the 2016 winners’ plaque before all retired to the Chairman’s house for tea and cakes.
