Proud to Live in Neston – Best Kept Village Award Successes

Neston takes great pride in announcing the results of this year’s Best Kept Village Competition 2019, sponsored by CWaC.  The entry was made jointly by Neston Town Council and the Neston Civic Society.


The awards presented were:

Runner up – Population 5,000 to 10,000 for Neston

Little Gem, citing our Commemorative Bench in Little Neston, and

Most Improved Award for 2019

Parkgate came 4th in their category and received a ‘Little Gem’ award for the ‘Hi-C’ boat on the middle slip.

What an achievement!

Thank you to all who care and look after your neighbourhood, we couldn’t have done it without you.

The judges were particularly impressed by our hanging baskets and “wonderful variety of floral displays, very impressive” And went on to comment that our Railway station and Primary and Secondary school areas had well maintained flower troughs, well placed bins and showed no evidence of litter, graffiti, dog fouling or weeds.  They particularly liked the all-round facilities at Stanney Fields Park.  Up to date notice boards along with the History boards were enjoyed by the judges and they found them to be well maintained.

Their special (abbreviated) note to Neston was “Neston is a very pleasant town with a good variety of shops and free parking which makes it a great place to stop and visit. Together with excellent access for walkers and cyclists and views of the Dee Estuary and Welsh Hills, it can be enjoyed by all.  The Town and Village caters for both young and old alike, with plenty of amenities and a good selection of places to eat, socialise and relax.  A very special place to live and visit, a joy to judge”

What more could you ask for… it’s official, Neston is a great place to be!
