KINVER is making its mark as the best large village in Staffordshire with a permanent plaque in pride of place.

The plaque has been installed on the wall of the Moss Grove clinic in the centre of the village.

Lin Hingley, chairman of the committee which co-ordinated the win, met up with members of Kinver Rotary Club to celebrate the arrival of the commemorative sign.

Members of the Rotary Club, who played a major part in the success of the village's entry in the competition, which is run by Staffordshire Community Council, have already pledged their support for the 2013 competition.
