Annual returns are prepared every year from the accounts maintained for the financial year. An internal audit is undertaken of the processes used to ensure accuracy and good management. The annual return is then sent to the external auditor. There is a period of Electors Rights to Inspect the Accounts, which is advertised on the parish notice boards and the website. Once the external audit is completed, the annual return and audit report are displayed as before.
The 2017-18 annual return has been adopted by the parish council and the Period of Public Rights to inspect the full accounts is from 4 June to 13 July by contacting the Parish Clerk and making an appointment.
The parish council must have up-to-date policies and procedures to undertake its work - Standing Orders, Asset Register, Financial Regulations, Financial Risk Assessment, Electronic Banking Policy, Code of Conduct and Complaints Procedure. Data Protection Policies and Documents can be found on the Data Protection GDPR page. As the council employs the Parish Clerk to be the Proper Officer and Responsible Financial Officer for the council and employs contractors for other work within the parish, it must have suitable employment policies as well. The latest adopted polices and documents are shown below.
Archive minutes are shown below, with the relevant Clerks Information Sheet if one was prepared.
