The audit exercise for 2013-2014 is now complete. A copy of the “Notice of Completion”
document can be downloaded by clicking here. In addition, a copy of the Annual Return
can be downloaded by clicking here. The former document will remain on the site for
the statutory minimum 14 days from the day of posting (17 September), but the latter
is also permanently posted to the site under the Financial Accounts/AuditSection.
NEIGHBOURHOOD DEVELOPMENT PLAN
Work has been proceeding “behind the scenes” for some time on this project. The Group
is now approaching the stage where a Plan will be prepared (in draft) prior to being
put forward for local consultation. Watch this space for developments.
Remains a problem within the village and is likely to get worse as dark evenings
approach. The Parish Council has agreed to try a new initiative to try to counteract
the problem - it involves spray cans, although I’m not sure whether it’s supposed
to be directed towards “the deposit “ or the dog owner….
FIRST WORLD WAR CENTENARY COMMEMORATION
The Parish Council has been considering for some time how best to recognise the selfless
sacrifice of villagers 100 years ago. One or two suggestions have been aired at recent
PC meetings, but it is important that we get this right. It is likely that parishioners
views will be sought in the not too distant future (perhaps via the PC Newsletter)
so please give the matter some thought. In the meantime, by all means speak to any
Parish Councillor and let us hear your views.
SPEAKING OF DARK EVENINGS
Just a quick reminder that the onset of darker evenings can result in an upswing
in local crime. Please take the usual care to ensure that houses/outbuildings/cars
etc. are properly secure, and you’re not included in our local crime statistics.
