HISTORY OF THE PARISH COUNCIL
The Parish Council was formed under the Local Government Act 1894, and held its first meeting on 14th December 1894. The Reverend W. B. C. Wilder was appointed Chairman, a post he held for 38 years until his death in 1932. Parish Council Meetings were held frequently until 1906. From recorded minutes, there were seven Parish Meetings from 1906 to 1930, and at a meeting in February 1930, W. B. C. Wilder was the only person present and he was later informed that "he was the Parish Council!!" The Parish Council was re-formed in 1946, with the Reverend E. S. Barrington-Barnes as Chairman, but the minutes show that only two meetings were held. In 1955, what can be considered the current day Parish Council began, with regular meetings held from l955 to present times. R. S. Ryder was appointed Chairman in 1955, and held this post for the 40 years to 1995. A. W. Knight was the Chairman from 1995- 2007. Thus, in the 113 years from 1894, there were only six Parish Council Chairmen. R. Sylvester-Bradley was Chairman from 2007 to 2013 and then S Kiddy from 2013 to 2017. P Spires is currently Chairman.
A Parish Council is the first tier of Local Government and is the closest to the electorate. Our Parish Council consists of seven Councillors. Elections for the Council are held every 4 years and the next date is May 2023. The Council employs a part-time Clerk. Council Meetings are held approximately every 2 months in the Village Hall. Meetings are open to the general public and before each meeting begins there is an "Open Forum" where members of the public can raise any Parish matter.
