Richard Pushman, Chairman of the Best Kept Village Competition, comments: "Our popular Best Kept Village Competition highlights the great community activity that goes on in our lovely Buckinghamshire villages. It is a great way to recognise the contribution of many who give their time and effort to showcase and enhance their local environment."

"The Best Kept Village competition is not just for 'pretty' villages — we want to see communities where everyone makes an effort to keep their surroundings well maintained. The competition is a good opportunity for villages to celebrate all the positive aspects of life in their village and we warmly congratulate this year's winners for their superb efforts."

The standard is higher than ever this year despite the drought conditions.
