Residents in a picturesque village are celebrating after winning the top prize in this year’s Essex Best Kept Village competition.

Stisted came top of its class for villages with a population of between 300-800, with Rayne the runner-up.

Parish council chairman John Clark said:”Following on from our success in receiving the Essex Village of the Year in 2011 we are delighted to now receive a further award.

“This award further recognises the dedication and committment of our community to maintaining a high standard of excellence.”

The Rev Ray Sams, vicar of All Saints Church, said: “It reflects a lot of hard work on the part of a lot of good people who are justifiably pleased with the environment that they live in and that they have helped to create.”

Ahh, so there's classes of competition are there? Never knew that. I suppose then that Witham could be in with a good chance of winning a Z class prize?
