Agendas Minutes and Accounts
Agendas for forthcoming meetings will be published in the Parish News, posted on the parish notice board (outside the village hall) and circulated by email to those residents who have provided an email address.
Minutes of meetings, which normally take place twice a year, in April/May and October/ November, will be circulated by email and can also be obtained by residents free of charge on request to the chairman.
The latest Parish Meeting was held on Wednesday 6th November 2019 and draft minutes can be downloaded by clicking below.
So far this year, because of COVID-19 restrictions, it has not been possible to hold a Parish Meeting. We are now required to do so, to comply with regulations regarding the consideration and approval of accounts for the year ended 31 March 2020.
It is proposed to convene a meeting solely for this purpose to be held at The Old Vicarage on Wednesday 5th August 2020. A full Parish Meeting will be held later in the year, when the Village Hall should be operative again. Approval of the minutes of the meeting held on 6th November 2019 will be dealt with at that time.

All Parish Meetings in England are required to complete an Annual Governance and Accountability Return (“Annual Return”). This includes an Annual Governance Statement, Accounting Statements and an Internal Audit Report. Any person has the right to inspect and make copies of the accounting records.
Parish Meetings where the higher of gross annual income or gross annual expenditure does not exceed £25,000 (as in the case of Selmeston) are able to declare themselves exempt from sending their Annual Return for external audit provided that a Certificate of Exemption is sent to the external auditor and that the Annual Return and Accounting Statements are approved and published and displayed.
