Comments on the accounts:

The large decrease in 2015/16 in Total Other Receipts, by comparison with the previous year, reflects one-off donations for renewal of the village's Christmas lights in 2014/15 (without those donations, the figure would fall from £9,332 to £3,165).

 

The large decrease in 2015/16 in All Other Payments, by comparison with the previous year, reflects:

(1) the one-off cost of purchase & installation of new Christmas lights in 2014/15 (without that cost, the figure would fall from £11,314 to £5,757), partially offset by

(2) a cost in 2015/16 of £2,344 from holding the 4-yearly Parish Council elections

 

The increase in 2015/16 in Staff Costs, by comparison with the previous year, reflects a regrading of the Clerk's post in 2015/16, causing £477 backpay from past years to be paid in 2015/16.
