A "VIBRANT" village in the Huddersfield area is looking for national glory after being crowned the best in the North.
Shelley, which has already scooped the accolade of Best Village in the North of England in the Calor Village of the Year contest, will find out today if it has won the national title.
The contest assesses communities on six aspects of village life - community life, business, young people, older people, the environment and, judged separately, information and communication technology (ICT).
Shelley impressed competition judges with its sense of community.
The judge's report said: "Shelley is a happy and vibrant village.
"The community is pro-active and caring and actively encourages projects that highlight and develop the diversity of village life."
The village also won regional category prizes for community life, business, environment and ICT.
The national title will be presented at a lunch in London hosted by TV's Hugh Fearnley- Whittingstall.
The star of Channel 4's River Cottage series, said: "The communities represented are good examples of rural villages working hard to provide for all their residents."
