Our Gerrards Cross office was delighted to support “Mary Berry Day”, a great charity event at Buckingham House Care Home with a garden themed cake decorating “bake-off”. The standard was amazing; celebrity baker and judge, Mary Berry, thought they were brilliant. Mary presented prizes to the winners and also to winners from local schools who had taken part in a cake drawing competition. In addition to the competitions there was a cake sale, and raffle, raising a total of £886 for local charity, Rennie Grove Hospice Care.

Judging of the 2019 Buckinghamshire Best Kept Village Competition has now ended and the best kept villages in Bucks have just been announced. We’re delighted to see winning ways from several of the villages and towns where The Frost Partnership has offices; Burnham, Chalfont St Peter and Chalfont St Giles. A total of nine awards are handed out across a range of categories. Burnham and Chalfont St Peter competed for The Pushman Cup (for villages with a population over 3000). Burnham was the winner with Chalfont St Peter the runner-up. Chalfont St Giles was awarded The Tindall Cup (a competition for the 2017 cup winners).

The title “Best Kept Village” conjures up pictures of gaudy floral displays and parishioners proudly waving flags but there’s a lot more to it than a few hanging baskets and swathes of bunting. Over and above litter-free verges and tidy open spaces, judges assess facilities and community spirit. Chalfont St Peter and Chalfont St Giles offer this in abundance and have won Best Kept Village titles multiple times over the years. Both offer a friendly welcome to visitors with a high street comprising mainly small, independent shops and there’s a high level of customer service; Chalfont St Peter was awarded the ‘Welcome Host’ accolade by the Southern Tourist Board.

Congratulations to Frost sponspored, Wraysbury FC who won the East Berkshire League Cup Final last night against Hounslow Wanderers. It was played at Burnham FC and, having gone a goal down, Wraysbury equalised only to go 1-2 down at half time. A second half equaliser pushed it into extra time where Wraysbury deservedly went on to win 4-2.
