Village celebrates contest success
THEY know how to party in Shelley!
Villagers packed in to the Methodist Hall to receive prizes marking their amazing success in the Village of The Year contest.
Shelley had already won the Yorkshire title and this week, as reported earlier in The Examiner, they were named Northern Village of the Year.
They missed out on the national title to St Neot, in Cornwall.
But they did win other awards in the contest sponsored by Calor.
The results of this year's competition were announced by Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall, the TV personality and farmer-chef famous for his Channel 4 River Cottage Series.
The contest assessed communities on six aspects of village life with categories in community life, business, young people, older people, the environment and, judged separately, information communication technology.
Shelley carried off regional category prizes for community life, business, the environment and information communication technology.
Villagers were presented with framed certificates, a plaque and prize money totalling pounds 3,500.
