Welcome to Palgrave and District Community Centre


Palgrave & District Community Centre is a local charity (PDCC) managed by a committee of trustees. The trustees are all local residents who volunteer their time to enable the Community Centre, the playing field and the children’s play area to provide recreational activities in our local community.

The charity has to generate income to cover the running costs of the Centre, the playing field and the children’s play area. We do this through membership subscriptions, fundraising events and the hire of the Centre for private functions and by regular activity groups and clubs. Remarkably, given our strong community focus and the local amenities we provide, we do not receive funding to cover our running costs from public bodies such as the District Council or the Parish Council. 

The PDCC offers a membership scheme which is open to any adult in Palgrave and the neighbouring areas including Diss. Membership is currently set at £10 per year. As well as helping us to keep the Centre running, the scheme also gives members price reductions for some PDCC events such as entry to the monthly cinema evenings.

We organise a number of community events throughout the year – coffee mornings, garage sales, open gardens, barbeques and, quiz evenings. Regular activities taking place at the Centre include art and photography groups, dancing and exercise classes, Friendship Club, carpet bowls, cribbage, meditation, boot camp, children’s sports group, a theatre group and a ukulele group. Every week during term-time classes from Palgrave primary school also use the Centre and playing field. 

The Centre is also home to the “Community Club” licensed bar, which is open every Friday evening. It is run by volunteers and provides a place for residents to meet up and enjoy a drink. Charity Commission rules mean that the Community Club bar is run separately to the PDCC - Community Club membership also gives members cheaper prices.

The main hall and the lounge area are available for functions, events and meetings at a really reasonable rate.  More information can be found via the contact/booking area link.

And lastly, the PDCC fund, produce and distribute the village’s monthly magazine “The Palgrave Star” which keeps the community in touch with village life and is delivered free to every household in the village, it is also available online.
