Yetholm Community Council meets on the last Tuesday of every month - with the exception of December - in the Youth Hall at 7pm. All these meetings are open to the general public and provide an opportunity to join in with matters and debates which directly affect the village. In addition to Councillors, the meetings are also attended by the local Regional Councillor from Scottish Borders Council and, duties permitting, the local police officers. The A.G.M. is held each April at a venue and time as publicised.
