Welcome to the Palgrave and District Community Centre 

 

 

We are now taking bookings for activities inside the hall and or lounge, but there are restrictions in line with the latest Government Guidelines.

We are now slowly returning to normal operating procedures- Contact the Booking Secretary for more details.

 

 

Palgrave Community Centre is run by an elected Trustee Committee, all Trustees of the Charity. The running of the Centre is all paid for out of Community Centre funds, which are raised by membership subscription, and hiring out for private events, together with various fundraising activities. Membership gives you reductions on events put on by the Centre.

All members of the PDCC Trustee Committee are volunteers, who give up their time to plan and hold various events at the centre that we hope people will be interested in.

There are regular activities in the building including Film Nights, Crib, Bowls, Table Tennis, Drumming, The Friendship Club, Martial Arts, Dancing and exercise classes etc. The hall can also be let for private parties and meetings at a charge lower than most in the area.

If you wish to book or enquire about prices please go to our Contact/Booking area.

During the year there are several events organised with the aim of getting the village people together; Spring Fayre; Summer Fete; Organised walks; Quizzes; Fireworks; Christmas Dinner; Coffee Mornings; Dinner Talks with local celebrities and experts; Demonstrations and lots more.

 

We produce the monthly magazine, The Palgrave Star, which is still delivered locally and available online.

Membership is £10 per person for 12 months and can be paid either by cash, or BACS. Membership brings reduced ticket prices to the Cinema and to most of the varied events throughout the year.

Palgrave Garage Sales

Only six weeks until Palgrave Garage Sale Day on Sunday 13th September. This has been an annual event for the last 10 years (with the exception of last year) and it normally attracts folk on foot, bicycle and cars. Easier than packing up the car and travelling to a car boot sale. If you haven’t enough “stuff” for a garage sale then tables will be available at the Community Centre.

The deadline for booking is Saturday 5th September to allow time for the map to be printed.

Entrance fee to join in this event is £10 which goes to Community Centre funds. To add your garage to the map please contact Helen Thorburn 01379 651749 (evening).

OPEN GARDENS UPDATE

Open Gardens weekend May 29th-31st 

We are so very pleased to report that Open Gardens over the Bank Holiday weekend was a tremendous success.

We estimate that the gardens had around 300 visitors and the weather was perfect.

Thanks go to Jane and Help for all the organising, and to all the volunteers who helped with teas and coffees and cake.
