History Month Fact 23: Local Government

Local government in the 1880's was a rare source of employment, so much that the only full time representative was W M Draper who lived in The Broadway. He was Registrar for Births, Deaths and Marriages. He was also Relieving Officer, which meant that he was personally involved in distributing charity to those in need, as well as being Vaccination Officer and School Attendance Officer.
