Parish Council Accounts 2019-20

Each year Parish Councils like Woodford cum Membris have to prepare an Annual Governance and Accountability Return (AGAR) which is reviewed by an external auditor. Your Council spent £210,000 in 2019-20 and manages over £3.9M in community assets (such as the Woodland, the Village Centre and the Memorial Hall). Although each month’s Parish Council expenditure statement let you see how your local taxes are spent in the village, these accounts summarise the picture and provide details such as loan repayments and the balance of assets held.
