Finance and Audit

The Parish Council is responsible for raising and spending public money and budgeting has to be done carefully for this. Every year the Council requests a sum from the District Council, called the precept.

The budget for 2020 – 21 can be viewed via the link below:

As the Parish Council controls public money its accounts have to be audited every year. Copies of the Annual Return are published on the Council notice boards and this website.
