Fundraising and FinanceEdit
The main funds to operate the Green are supplied by the Parish Council, who replaced a grant for grasscutting with the service of grasscutting to save the VAT and a local charity, The Anglers Inn Trust, whose contribution pays for the Insurance and other ongoing expenses. The general maintenance of the Green is done by volunteers. Therefore, Burneside does not usually do any fundraising.
