Dan Corbett

Dan Corbett, who died last November, lived in Sea Palling for 15 years from 1969. He was very active in the local community, being both a Parish Councillor and a District Councillor. He was also headmaster at Stalham first school and, with Barry Clark, was a founder member of the Palling volunteer lifeboat. His final wishes were for his ashes to be spread at sea from the lifeboat. This will occur on 14th July at 11am. All that knew him and would like to pay their respects are welcome at the beach to witness the event. A lunch buffet is being held for close friends and family afterwards. Dan’s son, Simon, would like to thank both the village hall and the lifeboat crew for their help and support for this event.

Sea Palling Community Library and Book Shop


Located in the heart of the community, Sea Palling Community Library and Book Shop is a relatively recent addition to the other great facilities available in our village.

Run by volunteers and using good clean second-hand books from our community, we have amassed over 4,500 books which are available to ‘rent’ or  buy.

A small charge of 75p is due on each book borrowed, if the book is returned 25p is refunded to the borrower per book.  (There is no specific time limit on the length of borrow)

We have many lovely books for sale: from recent novels to ‘Coffee Table Books’, Craft books, Cookery books, History books etc., as well as a diverse Childrens Section which includes everything from Thomas the Tank Engine to Treasure Island and much besides.  We do have a wide range.  Prices start from 75p.

Tea,coffee and hot chocolate are available at 50p per cup/mug and the biscuits are free.

All proceeds are used for the maintenance of the fabric of our church, some parts of which date back almost 1000 years, so as you can imagine it needs a lot of maintenance.

If you find yourself without a book to read, or you need a present for a friend, we could well have just what you require, whether you live locally or are visiting the Sea Palling area, everyone is very welcome indeed.

Please come and have a browse, there is no obligation.  Your support would be most welcome and it would be great to meet you.


The library is situated in The Nissen Hut, Church Road, Sea Palling.  We are open from 10.30am until midday every Saturday morning, and 10.30am until midday on the first Wednesday of every month.
