Parish Council meetings:

Parish Council meetings are usually held in the village hall on the fourth Wednesday of each month. Villagers are welcome as observers and there is a short time when they are invited to speak. The agenda is posted on the village notice boards. Minutes of meetings are available on this site as are the audited annual accounts. Records of the main business of the council are published in 'Letter from Layham' in Hadleigh Community News.

The Annual Parish Meeting is held each April when a report on the year is given. This is a public meeting and participation by members of the public is welcomed.
