Best Kept Village Success

Wrawby has been placed third in the Large Village group of this year’s CPRE North Lincolnshire Best Kept Village competition.

We scored 144 out of a possible 150 and were beaten by Scawby with 146 points and Barrow on Humber with 145. The group includes villages with populations between 1000 and 4000.

The judges commented that “Wrawby is a very pleasant village with many attractive features. There are some very attractive gardens and effective community planting.”
