Dorset Map

12:00am 24th August 2014

The winners of Dorset's Best Village Competition will be revealed next month.

The presentation's being held on Thursday 18th September at Morden village Hall, near Wareham.

The villages were judged over the summer with a new award this year for Best Village Shop sponsored by the Campaign to Protect Rural England (CPRE).

Rita Burden is the competition organiser:

"Once again it has been a privilege to visit these villages using judging criteria which positively encourages the protection of our precious environment. Village litter picks, pollution free streams and ponds, protecting wild life habitat and the planting of trees and wild flowers areas-these initiatives gain the highest marks from judges."

The competition has been organised by Dorset Community Action since 1987, and in 2009 Magna Housing Association became the main sponsor, this year it will be handing out cash prizes to the winners.

Full results will be released at 9pm on Thursday 18th September.
