KINVER may have missed out on the top title in this year’s Best Kept Village competition but the village’s youngsters were victorious.
Last year, Kinver was crowned the best large village but this year it missed out on a placing and was highly commended by judges when the results were announced on Monday (August 5).
The competition, organised by the Community Council of Staffordshire,, does not just judge the best kept villages, it also encourages children to get involved and design posters to highlight their village’s efforts.
The Staffordshire Children’s Poster competition, sponsored by KGL Estates, resulted in hundreds of posters being displayed in many competing villages.
Kinver youngsters were triumphant as Rhianna Morrison created the winning poster and Sophie Scrivens’ effort earned her second place.
For the third year there was also a competition for 11 to 16 year olds to design a poster with the theme of ‘In Remembrance’, sponsored by The Leavesley Group on behalf of The National Memorial Arboretum.
Entries submitted by Edgecliff High School pupils were described by judges as being of “excellent quality” and joint first place went to pupils, Polly Brant, Rachel Niblett and Jess Jones.
