AUDIT

Each year we are required to submit paperwork to an internal and external auditor who assesses out compliance with the law and appropriate spending of public money.  Audit forms from 2018-19 can be seen below.

PRECEPT

The Parish Council’s income is in the form of a Precept, collected on our behalf by the District Council.  It makes up a small percentage of your Council Tax Bill each year, the graph below shows a historical comparison of the amount we would receive per band D household, by year.  You’ll notice a rise in years we have taken on larger projects such as restoration of the War Memorial, or replacement of equipment in the Play Area.  Two years ago we also took on “Devolved Services” which means we are responsible for grass cutting the areas owned by Bucks County Council, along with other minor maintenance.
