It is a bit disingenuous of Sutton Bridge Coun Dewsberry to say the Sutton Bridge finance committee’s estimated spending for this coming financial year is down by £18,000 on last year. He might perhaps have explained that the decrease is because this year the council is not having to pay for a tribunal settlement. The article gives the impression of “good managment” by the parish council. It could be that it just doesn’t have to conceal by “masking” the settlement figure within the accounts as it did last year.
