Finances

Parish Councils are empowered to raise money for their activities through a tax (the Precept) on the village residents which is collected on their behalf by the District Council, as an addition to the District and County Council Tax. This is then paid to the Parish Council in two equal instalments.

 

Parish and town councils can apply for other funding such as grant and funding awards, but they do not receive funds directly from central government as principal authorities do. Our financial year runs from 1 April to 31 March and we agree an annual budget in January each year.

Grants

 

Each year we give grants to worthy local community groups and projects. If you feel that your group could benefit from a small grant from the Parish Council then please write to us. We would like to hear about the plans you hope to achieve, how much you are looking for and who would benefit.

 

We consider grant applications at our January and July meetings each year. Please first read our grants policy and if you would like to apply complete and return our grants application form.
