Palmerstown is an ancient place. There are the remains of a Bronze age burial ground within the gardens of Stewart’s Hospital and the site of the old church and graveyard has proven its existence as far back as the 13th Century. The damage being cause through mindless vandalism is an affront to the right of local people to enjoy their heritage and for the families in Palmerstown who still have relatives buried there, to remember their history.

As part of my volunteerism in the community, I am coordinator of my local neighborhood watch group and I created the popular Palmerstown Neighbourhood Watch Facebook page.
A particularly nasty type of crime is that which target vulnerable people and cons them into parting with their money. Bogus builders & charity collectors are frequently active in our area. Please keep an eye out for your neighbours. Be helpfully nosy if you think something might be out of the ordinary.
