Village named best in North Somerset

HUTTON has been named the best large village in North Somerset in a regional competition.
The village has been handed the gong after being judged the best in the district in the Campaign to Protect Rural England (CPRE) Avonside best village contest.
Hutton Parish Council chairman John Cole put the village’s success down to the hard work of village residents, orderlies and members of Hutton in Bloom.
The village has good pedigree in the contest – winning both the North Somerset and overall competitions in 2000.
A plaque marking the achievement will now be handed to the parish council over the course of the next month.
Mr Cole said: “We’re delighted. It’s all down to the community effort put in by everybody around the village.
“Everybody took part and they all played their part in us being given this award.”
Parish clerk Steve Cope said: “It is really down to the hard work of the village orderlies and the Hutton in Bloom team that we have won the district award and the parish council would like to thank all villagers who helped by keeping their gardens and surrounding areas looking good for the judges.”
