Posters to boost vil­lage hopes

Buckinghamshire Advertiser - - NEWS -

POSTERS are be­ing put in place around a vil­lage in or­der to en­cour­age peo­ple to help it win a com­pe­ti­tion.

Ger­rards Cross is putting it­self for­ward for the first prize in this year’s Best Kept Vil­lage con­test and is urg­ing peo­ple in the area to do what they can to help it claim victory.

The posters are go­ing to be ap­pear­ing around the vil­lage, on no­tice boards and shop win­dows, in the run up to judg­ing, which takes place in June.

Com­mu­nity groups and in­di­vid­u­als are be­ing en­cour­aged to put them­selves for­ward to help with tidy up op­er­a­tions from now un­til judg­ing takes place, and it is hoped that the poster will raise aware­ness of the con­test, as well as re­sult­ing in more peo­ple vol­un­teer­ing to lend a hand.

Parish coun­cil chair­man Chris Brown said: “We re­ally want peo­ple to be aware of what we’re try­ing to achieve here and for peo­ple to get in­volved with the con­test.

“Hope­fully the posters will help with both of those things.”
