This competition is all about encouraging and rewarding vibrant, enterprising and caring rural communities. It is the only competition of its kind in Essex that focuses on the whole community rather than onthe work of the Parish Council or one particular organisation or amenity. This year marks the 60th anniversary of our first ever Best Kept Village competition. In keeping with this proud tradition, our judges will be looking for those villages which, irrespective of size, are doing most to enhance the quality of life for all inhabitants.
