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.
Mark this date in your new diary as the PDCC are holding a Coffee Morning at Palgrave Community Centre. Drop in between 10.00am and 1.00pm for coffee, tea and to sample our delicious homemade cake. If you haven’t a sweet tooth there will be cheese scones and freshly baked sausage rolls for you to try. A chance to meet other folk from the village and beyond.
Come along and meet the committee and share ideas for events and hopefully you may add your name to our volunteer and helpers list.
PALGRAVE HISTORY GROUP
It’s been 2 years since this small group got together for the purpose of recording, collating, and eventually publishing all the material on Palgrave history collected over the last 10 years. Covid, unfortunately interrupted proceedings but we are now in a position to resume.
We have received a body of work from Peter Atkinson, who has collated all the existing written material into a 70 page document which is now on the Parish Council website http://www.palgrave.onesuffolk.net/assets/ Uploads/Palgrave-Past-1.pdf
Peter has done a great job of pulling everything together and the Parish Council have had it edited and indexed.
We are now looking at carrying out some additional work with this material, to supplement it with photographs, anecdotes and repurpose it into a collection of readable pamphlet type documents accessible to all. Most of the work has been done, it would be such a shame for it to go to waste.
This is a call for those that would be interested in helping with this project to join this small group, starting in January.
Please contact Phil Dyer on firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like to help.
