Civic and Community

Community Councillors and Officers

From the sixteenth century to the end of the nineteenth century ecclesiastical and civil administration at the parish level was supervised through the monthly vestry meetings. Under the Local Government Act of 1894 the two functions were finally separated, and parish councils were established to handle civil administration. Under the 1974 local government reorganisation community councils replaced parish councils.

Many diarists were involved in administration at this level either as clerks or councillors.
