Best Kept Village

The origination of the competition for the Best Kept Village was in March 1957 when the County advised the Parish Council that Alderman N W Gurney had presented a cup to be given to the most 'Tidy Village'. The Parish Council decided that Sherington should enter and two members of the Council mowed The Knoll as a contribution towards entry.

Unfortunately "as little or no interest was displayed by villagers in 1957" it was decided that no entry would be made in 1958. The same decision was made in 1959, 1960 and 1961. In 1962 the Council decided to write a letter to every resident in the village asking for their co-operation in keeping the village tidy for the competition. Whether or not co-operation was forthcoming was not minuted but no entry was made in 1963.
