Colby & Banningham Parish Council serves the two villages of Colby & Banningham. There are 7 Councillors, all of whom represent the whole area – no wards. On behalf of the parish, the Council owns the Jubilee Hall, Banningham, Banningham Village Green, the Playing Field at Bridge Road Colby, 3 allotments and a piece of arable land behind, on Colby Road, and contributes to the maintenance of Colby and Banningham Churchyards as burial grounds. The Council was awarded Quality Parish Council status in June 2008.
Probably the last thing on everyone’s minds at the moment, but thinking ahead to the warmer weather, here is some information about swimming classes run by the Vikings Swimming Club. There’s something for everyone, from beginners to triathlon.
The Council submitted the portfolio of evidence for re-accrediation under the Quality Scheme – it went to the County Accreditation Panel on 25 October 2012.
The Panel agreed that the evidence met all the tests for Quality Status, so Colby & Banningham is re-accredited until 2016!
The Council has today received the signed off Annual Return from the External Auditor, Mazars. A couple of points were brought to the Council’s attention, but the Auditor confirmed that all the information was in accordance with proper practies and there was nothing that caused concern that relevant legislation and regulatory requirements had not been met. A copy of the document will be placed on the notice boards.
The notice below formally concludes the Audit process for the year 2011-2012.
