The Precept of a Parish Council is an amount of money agreed by the Parish Council for the running of the parish for the next financial year - this is added to each property's council tax. 


The Precept for 2015/16 was increased significantly following a consultation via the Parish Council newsletter to provide the finance, via a Public Works Loan, for the funding to cover the cost of the new roof at Marden Memorial Hall - this followed many months of trying by the Hall Trustees to obtain the funding from other sources.  The loan was received in July 2015 and payments are made January and July of each year - the term of the loan is 30 years.
