Down At The Old Cock and Bull

Down at the Old Cock and Bull

aka Aughton Parish Council, the latest “Parish Finance Statement” precept for the financial year 2020/2021, Council Tax for Band D, is £16.79. A rise of 50p is being imposed by the parish bean counters.

For the previous 5 years the “precept after grant raised” was in the range of £56,342.00 to £59,882.00. But now it has been raised to £61,980.00. The latest Accounting Statement includes short term cash and short term investments £121,378 and fixed assets plus longer term investments/assets of £325,559. As usual, Aughton’s residents see nothing but potholes, flooded roads and pavements, and un-swept gutters. There are no local clean-up initiatives just for and by the parish, and only recently a litter pick was undertaken by Our West Lancashire. We don’t know yet why the parish needs another £2,098…CIL is still shown as +£53,040.
