Abbots Langley is to withdraw from the “Best Kept Village” competition this year.

A letter to Abbots Langley Parish Council from the Best Kept Village Committee states that over the past six weeks, the committee has met with “indifference, apathy and even antagonism”.

Councillor Mrs D. Pratt said at the council meeting that she was appalled at the “couldn’t care less” atitude of the villagers.

“They just aren’t interested in making the village a bit nicer,” she remarked.
