The village of Gnosall has received a boost in its quest to be named one of the best kept villages in Staffordshire for a second year in a row.
Linden Homes has made a donation towards a new flower bed and village sign which will be located near the entrance to the village.
The sign will include a selection of photographs from the village and the local area.
The village is looking to repeat its success in last year’s Best Kept Village awards, when it was crowned ‘Best Large Village’ and ‘Best Kept Village’ in Staffordshire, beating competition from more than 50 other villages.
The competition involves three rounds of judging, with the last round of judging set to take place in July.
Dave Clarke, Gnosall Best Kept Village Co-ordinator, said: “We’re very grateful for the donation from Linden Homes, which has helped us to buy our new flower bed and village sign.
“The project cost around £2,500 and Linden Homes’ donation has been a big boost, helping us to reach our total.
“The flower bed and village sign will become a cheerful sight for people as they enter the village, and will give residents a daily reminder of the village’s successes in the Best Kept Village competition.
“We had some great success in the competition last year, and our aim is to repeat that this year.
“It’s great for the village to receive recognition like this, and it makes us all feel very proud to be part of Gnosall.”
Linda Huntington, Head of Sales for Linden Homes West Midlands, said: “Gnosall is a lovely place to live, and the Best Kept Village group works hard to keep the village looking its very best – so we were more than happy to support its efforts with this donation.
“It’s wonderful to see everybody in Gnosall take so much pride in the place they call home, and we’re proud to be supporting the village.
“We wish the Best Kept Village group the very best of luck for this year’s competition, and we hope that they pick up more awards.”
Linden Homes is building new homes for sale at The Hollies, its development off Knightley Road in Gnosall.
