Applications process for School Travel Spare Seats opens on Friday 23rd October
Suffolk County Council’s spare seat application process opens on Friday (23 October 2020).
Parents of children who are not eligible for SCC funded school travel, may apply to buy a spare seat for travel to and from school on an SCC vehicle. Spare seats can never be guaranteed because they depend upon how many children eligible are using a route. This year there will be fewer seats available due to re-organised travel routes in response to the pandemic. The seats will be sold on a first come first served basis. To apply complete the online form at www.suffolkonboard.com/spareseat or call 0345 606 6173.

LORRIES DRIVING THROUGH PALGRAVE - If you witness a HGV vehicle travelling on a restricted or unsuitable route, please lodge a complaint directly with Suffolk Highways via the reporting tool at https://www.suffolk.gov.uk/roads-and-transport/lorry-management/report-a-heavy-goods-vehicle-incident/ or you can contact the parish clerk. The more details you can provide, the more useful the information. Examples are Owner / Livery on the vehicle, registration number, date and time.
TREE WARDEN - On behalf of the Suffolk Tree Warden Network, we are seeking a volunteer to become a Tree Warden for Palgrave.
