What does "community" mean?

A couple of weeks ago I sent out postcards to community groups asking what the key challenges are for them, how they see their community in the future and how they define "community". The word community is used a lot and the government defines it as a group of people within the same postcode in the 2016 Land Reform Act. When I have asked people what community means to them they usually answer that it refers to people connected by place or by a common interest. I look forward to seeing more definitions when my postcards are returned to me from various community trusts.
