Seer Green has also won the Leofwine Shield 2013
.
This is awarded annually to the town or village within the District achieving the highest number of points in the Buckinghamshire Best Kept Village Competition.

Competition chairman, Richard Pushman commented: “The Best Kept Village Competition remains as popular as ever. Our judges were impressed with the standard of entries and highlighted that Buckinghamshire as a whole, and not just the Best Kept Villages, is in remarkably great shape. Well done to all those litter pickers and volunteers who make such an effort to keep their communities tidy.”

The competition awards are for BEST KEPT villages, NOT beautiful villages. Care, cleanliness, maintenance and community effort were what the judges were looking for when they visited the villages in June.

Thames Valley Local Resilience Forum have prepared a booklet called 'Are you ready?' (see attached link) to provide clear practical advice to help you prepare and respond to an emergency.
