2022 Budget  The PCC has approved the budget for 2022 showing a deficit of £2,265.  We hope to reduce this budgeted deficit by increasing Direct Income and Other Income received from Church Room Letting, Fundraising and Parochial Fees above the sums budgeted whilst sensibly managing the level of Expenditure. Except for the Oak Audio Unit, no other capital projects are planned for 2022. The next Quinquennial Inspection is due in May 2022.   CONCLUSION The deficit of £51 against a budgeted deficit of £6,235 for 2021 is remarkable especially in the context of the ongoing effect of the Covid pandemic. This outcome is due to Direct Giving being higher than budget including the Gift Aid received from the donations to the Organ Appeal. As always Expenditure was tightly managed throughout the year.  At the end of 2021 we had funds in our bank accounts of £56,562 including available funds in our reserves of £32,493.  We have a great deal to be thankful for as the net surplus generated over the last ten years has enabled us to fund some large capital projects during that period and still have sufficient reserves to sustain us from the significant impact of the pandemic on our financial position during the last two years.  Our principal goal is to continue to manage our finances prudently.
