RESIDENTS of Hutton are hoping their village will be named the best in the Avon area.

The village has entered this year’s Campaign to Protect Rural England best village awards and will be judged in July.

This year’s competition will differ from previous years, in that entries will be judged on their physical appearance, with standards of care, tidiness and the absence of litter all key criteria.

Hutton will be up against other villages from North Somerset, Bath and North East Somerset, South Gloucestershire and Bristol.

The village has had previous success in the competition, winning both the North Somerset and overall competitions in 2000.

Hutton Parish Council clerk Steve Cope said: “We have had a pretty good track record in the competition when we have entered in the past so we thought it would be a good idea to give it a go again.

“It’s all about how presentable the village is, and although we have got our village orderlies who help tidy it up if every villager could keep the front of their homes presentable that would really help.”
