Year End Accounts for 2023/2024

The year-end Internal Audit will be undertaken on April 2024. The Audit Statement will be tabled at the Parish Council meeting on 16th April 2024 for approval. The Statement, Internal Auditor’s report and notice of your right to inspect the accounts will be published here in due course.

In order to comply with the Accounts and Audit Regulations, it is stipulated that the Parish Council must provide a scanned version of the Annual Governance and Accountability Return (AGAR). Unfortunately, this is inaccessible to screen readers, so if you require this information, please contact the Clerk. Likewise, the format for some of the following reports may also be inaccessible for screen readers, so again, please contact the Clerk.
