Two More Awards

Denton received two more awards and an extra £1,000 at today’s Calor Village of the Year presentation ceremony held in the marquee next to the Village Hall.

The organisers handed over our plaque (but where do we put it?) and £2,000 as Village of the Year for the East of England. However, they then revealed that we had won two of the four awards for the judging categories used in the competition. We were judged to be best in the region for ‘Sustainability’ and ‘Communications’. £500 was awarded for each so the actual cheque was for £3,000. After the awards and speeches an excellent buffet lunch was enjoyed by all in true Denton style.

The ceremony followed the judging for the next, all-England, round of the competition. It all appeared to go extremely well with — a great presentation from Gill Hipwell, an extensive tour of the village in Jules Greenway’s Buick, followed by a magnificent exhibition in the Hall with all the village organisations displaying their finest. The judges were obviously impressed but we are up against four other regional winners so we must not count our chickens. The result should be announced in mid-August.
