4th January - 124 years since the Parish Council's first meeting

124 years ago today (Friday 4th January 1895) the Parish Council met for the first time in the school rooms (now the Village Hall), transferring power from the Church and the Lord of the Manor's land agent to the newly elected parishioners (albeit the land agent, James Moyes Gray, got elected as the Vice-Chairman!)
