Bank Reconciliation 2020-21 (monies held by Hardwicke Parish Council until bank account opened for Hunts Grove PC)

Explanatory notes:

Funds were held by Hardwicke Parish Council on behalf of Hunts Grove Parish Council whilst the council arranged for a bank account to be opened, this was actioned in August 2021.  All local councils are audited annually; however due to the unique situation of the newly-formed council for Hunts Grove and the delay in setting up a bank account, the advice was that the Hunts Grove PC would be audited with Hardwicke PC's accounts.  However, the National Audit Office confirmed in August 2021 that Hunts Grove Parish Council needed to submit separate accounts for audit.
