The precept is decided upon once the budget is set. The Unitary Council collect the precept for the Parish Council and pay the monies in equal amounts in April and September.
The exercise to set the budget begins in October, with each committee examining the money required to carry out their functions and any projects. These budgetary requests are then taken to the Finance Committee who put them together in a proposed budget. The budget for the following year is set in January when the amount required for the precept is notified to the Unitary Council.
The Chairman of the Parish Council has an allowance of £100. This allowance is usually spent on the Poppy Wreath purchased on behalf of the Parish Council for Remembrance Sunday and any other expenditure at the discretion of the Chairman.
