  • Catalogue, scan and annotate new photographs and documents that are offered to the village archive;
  • Make a register of material held in other locations – such as Ipswich and Bury St Edmunds Record Offices;
  • Seek material held by individuals and not so far shared with the Archivist;
  • Consider ways of showing material to the public occasionally through publication or exhibition;
  • Make an annual report each 1st April to the Layham Local History Group and to the Parish Council in time for the Annual Parish Meeting.
