Somerset Village of the Year 2018
The Judges for the Competition sponsored by Somerset Live, Magna Housing and Somerset Wildlife Trusts visited Paulton on Monday 20 August. They were met by members of PiP (Pride In Paulton) and given a tour of Paulton, introducing them to residents and visiting various areas around the Village, such as the Hub, Café Bombero, Swimming Pool, Fire Station, Memorial Park, Miners Recreation Ground, Cricket Club, Paulton Hospital to name a few. Holy Trinity Bell Ringers welcomed them to the Village by ringing the bells as the Judges entered the Memorial Park, one Judge remarked ‘I have never had bells rung for me before and it is something I will never forget’.
On Friday 26 October the results were announced and the Awards presented at Edington Village Hall. Despite strong competition Paulton won the ‘Best Large Village Award’. The Judges said ‘the community group Pride in Paulton blew the judges away with the multitude of projects it is at the heart of, improving how the village looks, functions and supports its residents. Volunteers of all ages and social backgrounds are heavily involved in making this village, which was once a thriving mining community, a better place to live and work’. Paulton was awarded with a Winners Plate and Certificate which will be displayed at the Hub.
PiP would like to thank everyone who supported the visit by the judges, it really was a team effort and without each and everyone of you it would not have been the success it was.
