The amount will be £9070. (Last year’s precept was set at £7225.) In round terms this will increase the precept from £48 per band D household to around £60 per annum. In absolute terms this is a modest increase and when the financial responsibilities and commitments of the Parish Council over the next year are taken into account represents exceptionally good value. We are a parish that maintains its own parish room and village play park for the benefit of the community; remunerates its parish clerks, and maintains its hedges and verges.
Parishioners who would like to know more about the details of the parish finances are advised to consult the parish web-site where they will find all the relevant documents and Council meeting minutes.
