2015/16 Annual Precept

After careful consideration the parish council determined that the annual precept for 2015/16 should be increased in order to complete the conversion of the Changing Rooms Building to a Meeting Room.  The total revenue that will be raised will increase by nearly 5% giving a total income of £30,005,  however due to an increase in the number of council tax payers the average increase to householders will be less than 2%.

Annual Parish Meeting Date

The Annual Parish Meeting which is a meeting for all electors within the parish will be held on Wednesday 4 March 2015 at 7.00pm. The March parish council meeting will follow the Parish Meeting.

Parish Council Elections

The term of office of all members of the parish council will end in May this year and elections for new councillors will take place on 7 May 2015.

Christmas Carol Singing

Thank you to all the residents who again attended the very enjoyable Christmas Carol Singing event at Kilham Hall on Wednesday 12 December. A special thank you  to Mr Littlewood for again volunteering to play the organ, St Wilfrid’s School for arranging the attendance of the Jubilate Choir and to Father Christmas for his visit.   The proceeds of the raffle were again donated to the Harry Matthews Bowel Transplant Fund.

The Parish Council would like to wish everyone a very happy Easter.
