Apparently the defibrillator is fine (the defib pack itself still has a green disc showing).  However, it is the case that is FLASHING - probably because it is a bit hot (honestly).  It has a max - min temperature range programmed into it on installation.  Clerk will continue to review. 

New Parish Councillors
The good news is that the council is now at full strength.  Anne Selway, Gill Williams, Jim Baines and Andy Scarisbrick were each co-opted at the meeting on 4th May 2018 to join existing councillors Steve Hartree, Mary Sheppard and Ray Blezard.  Then on 14th May Kirsten Hemingway and Jo Richardson were co-opted, bringing the total to nine.

Your council is now in a much better position to represent the village and its residents as the workload will be spread between nine councillors rather than three.  Please welcome your new councillors when next you see them and thank them for stepping forward.

Notice of Public Rights and Publication of Unaudited Annual Governance and Accountability Return (AGAR) and the Exercise of Public Rights for the financial year 2017-2018.
The first stage of the annual audit process has taken place.  The accounts for 2017-18 have been examined by the internal auditor (Richard Young) and everything was found to be in order.  The Parish Council approved the Annual Governance and Accountability Return (AGAR) at their meeting on 11th June 2018 and all audit documentation has been sent to the external auditors (PKF Littlejohn) for their approval. Please click for Section 1 and Section 2.

There must be a period of time when members of the public are allowed to inspect all financial documentation relating to 2017-18.  I have set this period to be 2nd July to 10th August 2018.  Documents will be available for examination by any Parishioner on reasonable notice during that period.  Copies of documents can be supplied at the cost of 10p per document (please note, some information may be redacted to comply with data protection legislation).  Click here for full information regarding the exercise of public rights.

Please note that these accounts are unaudited and therefore the Accounting Statements as published may be subject to change.

Marian Barber, Clerk.  20th June 2018
