Is there anything more likely to stimulate the ‘awww’ factor than a fluffy pet rabbit? Well, not with everyone it seems, because enough rabbits become unwanted to keep a local rescue and rehoming charity very busy. Fat Fluffs Rabbit Rescue gives unwanted rabbits a safe place to recuperate before finding them new, loving homes.


Claire Stevens will be giving an insight into the work of the local charity at Knowle Society’s July speaker evening on Monday 17 July. Come and join her and have your heart warmed by her stories of rabbit rescue. It may be hard to last the evening without going gooey over a rejuvenated rabbit.

Join us in the Village Hall at 8pm. All are welcome.

The talk was most enjoyable and informative.

We even received a certificate!

Grimshaw Hall

Our exhibition on the above ancient (circa 1560), beautifully restored building is now showing in the Local History Centre (upstairs in Knowle library), and is free to view at any time during library opening hours.

Library tree – update

The Library Tree
Those who have walked past or used the Library recently will have seen that the copper beech tree has been removed.  It had been causing too many problems for library users and passers-by.

The Society was hoping to commission an artist to create a sculpture to take its place, using the trunk.  Unfortunately, the timber was not suitable, so we are exploring an alternative source for a suitable piece.
