The Council operates a budget which is largely made up of the Precept - a sum levied on all households in the Parish. It may also obtain funding for specific projects and there may be contributions from other sources in some years.
The Responsible Financial Officer of the Council is the Parish Clerk, who operates to strict financial regulations and produces budgets each month and a set of accounts at the end of each financial year (31st March) which are subject to Internal and External Audit.
The External Audit includes the completion of the Annual Return which gives basic information about Council income and expenditure as well as asking the Council to confirm that it is dealing with the money in a proper way.
