The finance group work closely with the Responsible Finance Officer to ensure that excellent internal controls are in place. The Parish Council seeks to get good value for money, whilst utilising where possible, local contractors.

At monthly Parish Council meetings, the payments are reviewed for approval and the year to date budget position is monitored.
