Tuesday, July 16, 2019

Over 70 people gathered for the annual Northamptonshire Village Awards on Tuesday 16th July at the Hunsbury Hill Centre. This year the awards are sponsored by CPRE Northamptonshire and we had a joint awards evening with presentations of the David Laing Litter Heroes awards as well as the awards to the Small, Medium and Large villages in the different categories.

The Overall Best Village award went to Glapthorn who also took home the Newcomers Rose Bowl and the Best Small Village Cup. A fantastic achievement!  Representatives of Glapthorn are pictured receiving their Best Overal Village award from Lord Lieutenant David Laing, President of Northamptonshire ACRE and of CPRE Northamptonshire.

Braunston was the Best Medium Village

East Hunsbury was the Best Large Village.

Helmdon and Rothersthorpe were both awarded Highly Commended for their villages.

Congratulations to eveyone who won and to all the villages that took part. A fantastic achievement by everyone.
