George V Playing Field
By Tarvin Parish Council - 25th January 2018 6:00am
Council Tax bills for 2018/9 will soon be landing on Tarvin residents' doormats. The bill is made up of several elements in addition to the main charge: for adult social care, police and fire authorities as well as the Tarvin Parish Council precept.
The Parish Council uses these monies to fund a variety of activities around the Parish such as maintenance of the King George V Playing Field, street lighting, grants to local organisations, and special projects such as the recent installation of CCTV cameras on the playing field.
Parishioners will be pleased to note that the Parish Council reviewed their income and expenditure budget for the forthcoming year at the January meeting and voted to freeze this element of the Council tax at the 2016/7 level, for the second consecutive year.
