Frank Baker was a:

  • churchwarden
  • parish councillor
  • school manager
  • one-time clerk to the Brampton Parish Council
  • one-time treasurer to the hospital contributory scheme before the National Health Service
  • one-time clerk to the Brampton Cemetery Committee

  • past president of the Huntington District of the Ely Diocesan Association of Church Bell Ringers

"These notes were made over a period of 10 - 12 years. I began to compile them when I retired as Clerk to the Parish Council in 1968 but since then further changes have taken place and some of the information written by me in these notes may already be out of date. I trust you will accept this as evidence of a thriving community in which change is continually taking place."
