Due in the most part to the great sell the village representatives gave to the judges it is our pleasure to tell you that Minster-in-Thanet has been bestowed the accolade of Calor Kent Village of the Year 2009 and now go forward to the represent the County in the Regional/National finals. First round judging for this is on Monday 28th September - so keep your fingers crossed. Minster was awarded a Highly Commended in the Business category, 2nd place in Sustainability and 1st in both Community Life and Communications. Paul Willins and Nora Aldous (MM) attended the award ceremony, on 1st September, in Ashford and came home laden with a Commemorative Plaque, 4 Framed Awards, 5 Certificates, 2 Cheques totalling ÂŁ500, plus authorisation letters to collect 3 trees which are to be planted in and around the village. The Plaque has since been mounted on the post just below the Village Sign outside of the Gossip Shop, where it can easily be seen by everyone entering the village via Tothill St. Two large Village of the Year signs have also been erected, one at the top of Tothill the other in Monkton Road (near top of Sheriffs Court Lane). These will remain in place just for one year. Press interest the following week was unbelievable we had numerous radio and newspaper interviews, plus photo shoots and even interest from Isle Magazine. So well done to all concerned and thank you to the whole village as it really was a team effort, that involved us all, whether or not you actually realised it. The judges were particularly impressed with the Church, the Abbey, the All Weather Pitch, this Magazine and associated publications, plus numerous other everyday things that go to make Minster the great community that it is.
