Barlaston was not placed in its category of the Best Kept Village Competition 2013. The winner was Haughton for the second year running. Haughton also won the overall county award so it is clearly formidable opposition. The other local large villages that were placed were Weston, Yarnfield and Gnosall.
A detailed feedback of the judges comments on Barlaston would be sent out in October.
For Barlaston 2013 has been a learning experience. Despite the result, a vote of thanks needs to be given to Patrick Linehan and his team for their hard work.
