Best Kept Village.

Best Kept Village competition 2023. 

A presentation evening took place on Wednesday, 6th September. Yoxall came second in the large village competition which covers the whole of Staffordshire. An excellent result, made even better due to the fact that three pupils at the local school won prizes in the poster and prose competitions. A prize of £250 has been awarded to us for use in the community and we now have to decide the best use. 

Thanks to everyone who has helped to keep our village tidy during the last 12 months.

Feedback from the judges included:

Upgrading the notice boards and better provision of local information.

One or two private gardens were well below an acceptable standard.

The Sports Ground was considered untidy and scruffy.

The church notice boards were considered to be in a poor conditioned more information is required.

We have already started preparation for the 2024 competition.

Village Tidy Up weekends are proposed for Saturday 16th and Sunday 17th March 2024.

Village Groups to be contacted in January 2024 about their participation.

2024 Competition.

Yoxall will not be taking part in this year's competition due to extensive village project work being undertaken. The organisers have been notified.
