We are delighted to announce that Haddenham has again featured among the major prizewinners in the Buckinghamshire Best Kept Village Competition.

Haddenham has won the Pushman Cup, for large villages with a population over 3,000.
(Joint runners-up were Chalfont St Giles & Gerrards Cross).

Competition chairman, Richard Pushman commented: "There were a record number of entries this year, standards were high in all the competing villages and I congratulate all our winners and runners-up. The judges were very impressed with the general upkeep and absence of litter."

"Almost all the entries displayed much evidence of good community spirit with numerous activities and community enterprise. Cuddington is a worthy winner of the Community Award. In particular, The Cuddington Picture House, run by volunteers, is an ambitious community project which has been a great success. Oving too deserves congratulations. Although
not a Best Kept Village winner the new village hall has been a tremendous achievement for the village."

The competition is organised by the Bucks Best Kept Village Competition Committee with sponsorship provided by Bucks County Council, Milton Keynes Council, the District Councils from Aylesbury Vale, Chiltern, South Bucks and Wycombe and Motts Coaches. International real estate adviser Savills sponsors the competition's Community Award.

Entrants were assessed on various features within their villages with categories covering playing fields, recreation grounds, village halls, war memorials, notice boards and areas
around shops and pubs.

The judges were also looking for evidence of community effort. Andrew Cronan, Head of Savills Beaconsfield Sales, comments: "Community is central to our ethos at Savills and we are delighted to be able to support an initiative which has such a positive impact on the
Buckinghamshire villages which we love and in which we all work and live."
