The Queen will celebrate her Platinum Jubilee in June 2022. A small group of residents is looking at how the Jubilee could be celebrated with an event in Loversall. If you are interested in being part of planning such an event please email firstname.lastname@example.org and we will pass your details on.
The minutes of the meeting can be seen by clicking on the “Parish Council” tab and then click on “Meetings: Minutes & Agendas”
The vacancy has arisen following the retirement of Lindsay Wilson who has served the Council for six years. The Council by law must employ a person to act as the “Proper Officer” / “Responsible Finance Officer” . Because the Parish Council is very small we do not have the resources to employ a Clerk on anything but a very part time basis but the role is an extremely important one, ensuring that Council business is conducted legally, following national guidance and ensuring adherence with the Councillor Code of Conduct. The Clerk is also responsible for following up actions decided by the Council and responding on the Council’s behalf to consultations by third parties. Experience in administration/finance and IT literacy is essential.
For further information and a full job description please email email@example.com
(The role of Clerk can be undertaken on a temporary unpaid basis by a parish councillor and Cllr Keith Wilson, is currently undertaking the role on this basis, as on a previous occasion)
Each year parish councils prepare an annual governance and accountability return (AGAR) which relates to the proper governance of the council’s finances. The detailed accounts are audited by an independent internal auditor. Provided the external auditor’s criteria are met, parish councils with small levels of income and expenditure can be exempt from an external audit (and associated costs).
All of the relevant AGAR documents for Loversall Parish Council 2020/21 can be viewed by clicking on the ‘parish council’ tab at the top of the page and then clicking on the ‘finance’ tab.
Each year parish councils must issue a Notice of Public Rights with regard to inspection of accounts and this notice was published in a previous post
Following the May 6th 2021 local elections, the Parish Councillors for Loversall are: Nicola Harris, Spencer Morris, Nigel Tomlinson, Keith Wilson and Colin Wright. They will serve for up to four years. Further information about your parish councillors can be found by clicking on the Parish Council tab at the top of the page.
Parish councillors are elected or co-opted volunteers from the parish and carry out their role as a public service without any form of payment. Just like Borough and County Councillors, they must agree to be bound by a code of conduct, which requires them to undertake their duties fairly, impartially and honestly in the public interest. They must also disclose any pecuniary interests that they might have and which might prove to be a conflict of interest with their role as Councillors. These interests are included with the information provided on each of the councillors on this website.
The Chairman of a parish council is elected annually and is a statutory post defined in law. Keith Wilson, who has been the Chairman of the Council for nine years, decided not to stand as Chairman in 2021/22 and Nigel Tomlinson has been elected in his stead.
If you have any questions , concerns or suggestions to improve the village then you can either speak to one of your councillors direct or contact the Clerk at firstname.lastname@example.org
