Each year the smaller authority’s Annual Governance and Accountability Return (AGAR) needs to be reviewed by an external auditor appointed by Smaller Authorities’ Audit Appointments Ltd. The unaudited AGAR has been published with this notice (see Finance page). As it has yet to be reviewed by the appointed auditor, it is subject to change as a result of that review.
Any person interested has the right to inspect and make copies of the accounting records for the financial year to which the audit relates and all books, deeds, contracts, bills, vouchers, receipts and other documents relating to those records must be made available for inspection by any person interested. For the year ended 31 March 2019, these documents will be available on reasonable notice (see notice above for more details).
Following uncontested Elections on 2nd May, the Parish Council has four vacancies to be filled by Co-option. The Parish Council meets 8 times a year, each meeting is usually about 2 hours with as much involvement in between meetings as you choose.
