How Aughton Parish Council Keeps Its Vast Cash Resources Intact

Cash rich Aughton awarded £5,000

As reported, Aughton Parish Council Accounts for the year ending 31 March 2019 show “The Section 2 Accounting Statement for the year 2018/2019, approved on the 26 June 2019 shows “Balances carried forward” from 31 March 2018 £117,750 to 31 March 2019 “£130,047”, an increase of “£12,297”.

But despite its wealth, Aughton Parish Council has applied for and received approval of a bid of £5,000 from the WLBC Capital Partnership Scheme 2019, towards an Aughton Play Area.

Minute 11121 WEST LANCASHIRE BOROUGH COUNCIL: Capital Partnership Scheme Bid 2019 – it was reported the bid for a scheme of £5,000 APC/£5,000 WLBC for the replacement of some of the safety surfacing at William Arnold Silcock Memorial Playing Field Play Area had been successful.

Why should WLBC council tax payers be subsidising cash rich Aughton in this way? Doesn’t this bring shame on the Aughton beancounters?

      That could be true. Meanwhile, we await another Bojo intervention to stop the wretched BBC hitting we oldies with licence fees. Surely there is enough still hanging on the money tree for such a bribe?
