Thanks to all those who have helped maintain the planting under these difficult conditions.

The Best Kept Village Judge have visited our village in May and June and allso the all important July visit which means thet we are in with a chance of a place or even winning our category. The announcement of results will take place in Gnosall Memorial Village Hall on Monday 6th August at 6.30 pm.
