Nearly But Not Quite

Denton’s run of success in the Calor Village of the Year Competition has come to an end. The results of the final all-England round have been announced and the winners are Kirkby Stephen in Cumbria. No runner-up is declared and details of the scoring system are not revealed but, unofficially, we have been told that it was very close and we were only a few points behind the winners.

While the result is obviously disappointing, the village can take great satisfaction from winning the earlier county and regional competitions. Thanks go to everybody involved in our entry with a special mention of Peter Hill’s excellent leadership.

Stop Press — Feedback from the judges has now been received.
