PHONE BOX - After a trail of emails between the Parish Council and BT, we are pleased to advise that the Phone Box is now working. It is however a cashless kiosk, and will therefore only work with credit or debit cards, but it is progress versus being out of order. BT have also done some remedial work to the inner ceiling of the kiosk which had poor adhering paintwork hanging down, and have scraped it off. BT confirm it is on the painting schedule which is good news. The engineer onsite also cleaned down the exterior rear wall. The door remains quite heavy to open, but this is a due to the metal door and cannot be altered further. We hope you see this as an overall improvement.

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.
