Moulton is the best kept village of its size in the East Midlands, and that is now official!
The village of Moulton won the Best Kept Village competition for 2015 for its category.
Moulton Parish Council clerk Helen Worth says this follows on from “months of community effort to ensure the village is clean, tidy, free from litter and that all local amenities, public spaces, residential and commercial properties are well presented and fit for the award”.
Around 30 parishioners attended a presentation evening held recently when the branch chairman of the Campaign to Protect Rural England Gerald Taylor presented parish council chairman Coun Jim Scarsbrook with a certificate and cheque for £50.
Helen says that Best Kept Village signs will be attached to the current village signs so that visitors to Moulton as well as those driving through are aware of the award.
