Village of the Year

Hanley Swan has won the Herefordshire & Worcestershire section of the Calor Gas Village of the Year competition for 2009.

The organisers of the monthly Café & Market were instrumental in managing the presentation to the Calor Gas judges when they came to inspect the village.  They visited the village hall, primary school and pond before meeting representatives from various village groups at The Swan inn.  This concerted effort paid off when the village received a plaque and £300 in recognition of its status as Village of the Year in what has turned out to be the last competition sponsored by Calor Gas.
