LUTTON PARISH COUNCIL: Council tax payers in village are given reasons to be pleased with work done this year, without a rise in precept




Improvements to Lutton War Memorial is among the achievements council tax payers in the village can be satisfied with this year, according to parish councillors.

A new wall outside St Nicholas Church and the Garden of Remembrance, cleaning up headstones in Lutton Cemetery and the cleaning of the war memorial have all been done without a rise in the village's £19,000 council tax precept.

During a parish council meeting last Monday, Coun David Wilkinson said: “I’ve had some very good feedback regarding the war memorial.

“It looks clean and absolutely splendid, a credit to the village, as it should be.

“As a council, we’ve achieved a great deal as the church wall , the cemetery has had an awful amount of work done on it, several headstones have been smartened up and the Garden of Remembrance has been improved.

“Considering that we didn’t increase our precept this year, we've done remarkably well, making use of funds that were available from elsewhere.

"We make every effort to keep what we have tidy and under control, so I'd like to thank the councillors for their work and support over the year.”
