Judges comments:-
"Bellerby came second in the under 400 residents class in the Best Kept Village competition. The plus points were that the greens and pavements (except for outside the pub) were very good, there was hardly any litter, the streams were outstandingly clean, the seats were all kept in good order and flower and vegetable gardens were very good with a lot of effort from most villagers. The bad points were that hedges, fences and walls were let down by some roadside weeds, the church yard was good, but there were soil and weeds by the cemetery gate, a few rundown garages or outbuildings and the pub was alright, but the window boxes and car park had weeds in them"
