Residents in Tilston are being asked for their views before the village’s precept for 2018/19 is set.

The call is coming from Tilston Parish Council before they set the tariff for the coming financial year, and want feedback on how much will be included in their council tax.

Parish Council clerk, Ann Wright, wants a response to three questions; whether it should increase the precept, freeze it or provide funding for other projects.

Anyone commenting on the issue is urged to provide further information for the third question.

A budget consultation form is available from the parish council and sets out how much is spent in the budget each year. Anyone wishing to take part must return their forms to the clerk by January 11, 2018.

Completed forms can be returned to the Village Store in Church Road or to the clerk at 62 Well Street, Malpas, Cheshire, SY14 8QH or by email to
