FESTIVAL OF SUFFOLK culminating in The Queen's Platinum Jubilee:
Two of our grand dames, Jean Thorndyke and Pauline Whistlecraft, represented Palgrave when the Lord Lieutenant’s Torch Relay came through Palgrave on Wednesday 25 May at approximately 3.30 pm. They shared a ride in an e-rickshaw and carried the Torch. Lots of villagers came out to support them and cheer them on their way as they progressed through the village.
STAND PIPES IN THE VILLAGE
A team of 3 volunteers recently renovated the two standpipes in Palgrave - one on The Green and the other on Crossing Road. They look wonderful with the gold top being the crowning glory ready for the Platinum Jubilee Weekend celebrations.
TREE WARDEN - On behalf of the Suffolk Tree Warden Network, we are seeking a volunteer to become a Tree Warden for Palgrave. This is a fairly new initiative due to Mid Suffolk District Council no longer being able to co-ordinate the role. If you are keen, please contact the clerk and she can put you in touch with the relevant people.

Palgrave Emergency Planning
If there was an emergency locally, what would you do? What action would you take? What action would we take as a village? We are developing our own Emergency Plan alongside BMSDC. This is a work in progress, time dependant, after a survey was sent out in April 2020. The online version is still available to those who prefer this option by following the link:- https://www.surveymonkey.co.uk/r/SPDQ5QH
Please help us to help YOU by completing the survey by whichever means suits you. Thank you. In the meantime please refer to the Emergency Planning page on the website for up to date severe weather information .

The Village School page will take you through to information about Palgrave Primary School.
Although Palgrave is only a mile by footpath from the centre of Diss we are right in the countryside so it is not surprising that the village has a Walking Group you can find details of their walks and where they meet on their page under Clubs and Groups.
There is much much more that can be added to the History page so if you have anything to add to the information already published under that page, please e-mail us to get in touch. You can also access the Gallery of Old Photos and Postcards from the History page.
