Finance and accounts

What is the money spent on?

The precept has to cover all the expenses of the parish; this includes the staff salaries, training, public lighting, and maintenance of public open spaces such as the village green.

In addition, the council supplements the grass cutting within the village centre to improve the standard adopted by County and District Councils and also employs contractors on an ad hoc basis to deal more quickly with some of the smaller jobs which arise around the village.

The Council is able to borrow money (with the approval of the Secretary of State) to pay for larger items of expenditure than are possible in one year’s precept. The money required to repay these loans is included in the precept.

The Council also supports on an ad hoc basis items which it considers of benefit to the parish: for example, it has supported the refurbishment of the parish room, the village hall, the erection of an open shelter for younger people in the parish and gives small donations to other bodies which it considers are of benefit to the village.
