Kings Bromley Best Kept Village Award
At a ceremony held by the Jubilee Seat on Friday 20th October, Kings Bromley were presented with the Best Kept Village Trophy for the Lichfield and Cannock District for the sixth year in a row. Parish Council Chairman Allan Howard welcomed villagers, guests and representatives from the Council.
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.
Following the ceremony, everyone was welcomed back to the Chairman’s house for refreshments.
