Old Amersham was runner-up to Marlow in the Michaelis Cup, for small towns, with a score of 92 out of 100. We WON the Dashwood Trophy, awarded to the best runner-up from the various categories.

Amersham on the Hill was judged separately and was not far behind with an equally impressive score of 86.

The Bucks Best Kept Village Competition has been running for 58 years.

To qualify, a village or small town should have particular features, including a place of worship (any denomination); a village green, playing field or recreation ground; and a community centre, village church or assembly hall. The judges look for “well kept open spaces, community facilities and evidence of community involvement”.

So this is an award reflecting everyone’s efforts – we hope you agree that Amersham is looking beautiful.
