Preparations are under way for Oulton’s attempt at the Best Kept Village Competition 2018.
In 2017 the village took second place in the Small Village category in Stafford Borough.
Organisers are hoping that, with the help of residents, they can snatch the trophy this year.
Judging starts on May 1 and members of Oulton Community Group will be out making the village look its best for the judging period.
The organisers are urging villagers to do their bit to look after their part of the village – from picking up litter to clearing up after their pet and keeping the frontages to their houses neat and tidy.
The village website can be found at www.oultonstone.org.uk and will keep villagers up to date on preparations and results.
