Village named as an inspiration
11:00am Thursday 10th October 2013 in News
ENHAM Alamein village has been named as the most inspirational community in Hampshire in a competition organised by the Hampshire Association of Local Councils.
The village is celebrating a hattrick of successes in the Hampshire Village of the Year competition.
Enham was runner-up in the prestigious main category of Village of the Year – pipped to the post by Bentworth – Leslie Barry, who coordinated the village entry, was herself awarded ‘Most Inspirational Individual’, having impressed the judges with her passion and commitment to the village.
After the presentation, Leslie said being a finalist was a privilege.
She added: “To engage with so many lovely dedicated people that support their own communities was a pleasure. I feel so overwhelmed to be quoted as an Inspirational Individual. What an honour.
“We have lived in Enham Alamein for nearly nine years and the uniqueness of this community serves to drive me forward to achieve the best for everyone.”
Leslie told the Enham Echo.
“We have heard so many stories from elderly residents about Enham’s history and wish to make this a great place for all generations now and in the future.
“Good manners, respect and consideration for all will cement this community spirit.”
