Judges comments in 2006 included:

It was pleasing to find this very attractive church open. The noticeboard was also very attractive. The churchyard has been left as a conservation area with daisies and poppies - a reminder of a traditional country churchyard. The cemetery was also excellent.

The childrens' playing area is well equipped and well kept. The playing fields are well used and excellent.

The Memorial Hall is very good but had some graffiti on open areas; the attractive planted areas are now matured.

Areas surrounding inns, hotels, pubs, and shops were generally very good and maintained in a very tidy state.

The pond is very attractive and well kept. The War Memorial in the churchyard is in very good order but that in the High Street had dead flowers which had not been removed.
