Annual Accounts
The Parish Council accounts are currently being audited and inspection is  a public right.  The Financial Summary and Asset Register can be downloaded. The Annual Returns information can also be viewed.  Questions can be taken by email, or by appointment at the stated times (page 1). An appointment is also required to view any additional paperwork.

The accounts have passed an internal audit satisfactorily. The internal auditor (appointed by the Council) is Lamin & White of Oakham. This is a check on figures, balances and financial records carried out in April. The external audit will be  conducted by Grant Thornton (Liverpool) appointed by the Audit Office. This is to ensure that public money is used as allowed by law, and the Council is operating according to legal procedures. [Jen Lacey, 1.6.2016]
