   How are Parish Council services funded?  
     
  The Parish Council raises the funds to undertake the services and facilities it provides through what is known as the precept. This is charged to residents through the council tax which is collected by the District Council. The precept is set at the December meeting of the Parish Council for the forthcoming financial year. For the financial year 2009/2010 the Parish Council's precept is £98,325, for 2008/2009 it was £95,000.
