The Annual Return has now been replaced by the AGAR (Annual Governance and Accountability Return.)

Full details and information are shown below. 


The AGAR is posted on the two noticeboards once it has been approved by the Parish Council. In addition the public have the right to inspect the accounts including all payments, income etc.  - full information on how to do this is also shown below.
