Best Kept Village Competition 1999
For many years now High Bickington has entered the CPRE 'Best Kept Village Competition'. Unlike Atherington, High Bickington has not been lucky enough to win the competition although marks for the village are always high.
One reason for High Bickington's lack of success is probably due to the quite high level of development the village has experienced over the past few years, something Atherington has not had to contend with. With these developments now coming to an end for the time being, the village may be able to concentrate on making the small improvements as recommended by previous judges for the competition, and may well be future winners?
As a point of reference to identify works required in order to stand a chance of winning the competition, it is worth looking back at the comments made during previous judging. Comments made in 1999 were as follows:
In 1999 High Bickington scored 82 marks out of 100. (Atheringtons score was 86).
