THE competition is hotting up for the Isle of Wight’s annual best kept village awards.

Now in its 46th year, 43 villages have entered this year’s contest.

Speaking ahead of the first round of judging, awards chairman Ann Langley said: "I would describe the awards as looking at the Island through visitors’ eyes.

"As always, judges will mark severely on the presence of litter, so be vigilant and make a special effort to remove any and increase your village’s chances of winning.

"New judges are always welcome. The current ones enjoy the days out and say it’s a wonderful way of becoming more familiar with the Island."

The overall winner will be revealed at a presentation evening on September 25.

Other awards will be presented for the best war memorial and conservation volunteer.
