At the meeting held on 3 November The Buckworth Web site was launched. Neil Hateley and the Clerk have spent some time putting the site together and they hope that it will be favourably received. Constructive comment and items for inclusion on the site will be appreciated.
The web site name is www. buckworth.org.uk

Also at the meeting items for inclusion in next year’s budget were discussed. The precept will be set at the meeting in December. Unless further items for inclusion in the budget are raised before the next meeting: the precept should remain the same for the financial year 2006\2007 (£2932.50) Agendas and minutes of the Council can now be viewed on the web site. Copies will continue to be displayed on the village notice board.
