And while all three would be worthy winners of the Calor-sponsored 2007 competition, one of the finalists - Levington, near Ipswich - is particularly keen to be in the news for the right reasons.
In December, the small village was thrown into a worldwide spotlight when the bodies of two missing women were discovered on its outskirts.
Police were already hunting the killer of three other women at the time of the terrible discovery.
