Council maintains reserves having taken the view that we are entering uncertain times when the demands on reserves cannot be fully anticipated. Therefore a prudent level of reserves is maintained in line with the Governance and Accountability in Local Councils guidelines.

As a Parish Council, we make every effort to ensure good governance and the close scrutiny of our financial processes. We aim to take full advantage of any s106 money available to us.

We have updated the Business Plan for the future direction of Council. We continue to make improvements to the pavilion and the equipment necessary for delivering a good service for the Parish. At the same time we will work with the Borough to make other improvements including expanding the Christmas lights.
