Palgrave Emergency Plan

We need you to contribute to this valuable piece of work by completing the questionnaire that will be delivered with the April 2020 edition of the Palgrave Star. There is also an online version available to those who prefer this option by following the link:- https://www.surveymonkey.co.uk/r/SPDQ5QH
