Village Of The Year Success

2nd of October 2002

Chipperfield has done it again! At a prize ceremony at County Hall on September 5, it was announced that we had won an award in the Hertfordshire Village of the Year Competition 2002, this time in the ‘Business category. The prize for our success is a commemorative plaque, a cheque for £50 and a framed certificate to be presented by the Lord Lieutenant on September 21 at Redbourn, the village winning the overall Village of the Year award.

In their summary report the judges said, ‘It is heartening to see so many villages managing to retain shops, whilst encouraging new businesses both at home and in converted farm buildings. The winning village not only has a comprehensive range of shops and services, but many businesses provide support for the community activities, such as the local football team, drama group and village events. There is a flourishing delicatessen in the village. Using local staff and, where possible, local ingredients, it is well-known for the quality of its products, which include full meals. It has already been awarded a Herts. County prize for its entrepreneurial skills. Well done to all concerned!
