Viewers will find out this weekend if Beer has triumphed to become the country’s village of the year.
Actress Penelope Keith is hosting Channel 4’s new show and along with judges Alex Langlands, Juliet Sergeant and Patrick Grant have toured the country to find out the very best of what village life has to offer.
In the lead up to the final the judges have complemented Beer’s fishing and lace making heritage as well as its community spirit.

The winner of the competition will win the prestigious title and £10,000 to spend on a community project.
If triumphant, Beer residents look to spend the prize money on improving the play area on The Jubilee.
The grand final will take place on Saturday at 8pm on Channel 4.
