Welcome to the Palgrave and District Community Centre - The Centre is currently closed but we are hopeful of opening after the 17th May











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.

Open Gardens weekend May 29th-31st

We now have 12 participating gardens, 11 gardens will be fully open and some will have art installations in their front garden, as well as sculptures and art/photos on display in various locations.

It's shaping up to be a very special weekend . 

Among the local artists exhibiting their work will be Maggie Campbell, Phil Dyer, Jenny Goater, Mike Webb, Jane West, David Whatley, Rob Harries and Cindy Lee Wright.

Pick up a map at the Community Centre, in the Church porch or from any of the gardens that are open. Rather than requiring visitors to book in advance and charging an entry fee, we are asking for donations towards Community Centre funds. You will be able to go around the gardens at your own pace and even spread your time over the three days if you wish.

There will be parking spaces at the Community Centre (not on the village Green, please).

For further information please call Jane McClintock on 07719 922762

On 1st May the next stage of clearing the playing field boundaries for the wildflower project, took place.

The area has now been cleared down to the ground level thanks to Jonny Ling and Charlie Doe and their heavy machinery expertise.

We would like to emphasise our gratitude to Jonny and Charlie who gave up their time on a voluntary basis to get this important work completed.

The next step is the heavy digging work to loosen the roots, ready for hand clearance in the summer

We will then need to prepare the seedbed by using a cultivator, ready for planting in the Autumn.
