RAINHILL PARISH PRECEPT HELDAt the recent Parish Meeting held on Monday 28th January 2008, we voted on a NIL increase for the forthcoming year. The figures speak for themselves: in the last eight years we have been able to reduce the precept on TWO occasions and hold the precept on the remaining SIX.
The allocation to the Village Hall has been increased by 3% and the fees for use of football pitches has increased by the same amount. These pitch charges still remain 25% cheaper than those imposed by St Helens Council.
We are very proud of our financial control with your monies and a special thanks must again go to our Parish Clerk David Blanchflower.
We believe we are the "Best Value for Money" parish council in St Helens and look forward to seeing the other parish precepts to confirm that when they become available.
