The Knowle Society is proud to announce that it has now reached over 3,500 members, thanks largely to the sterling work done by our recruitment team and Martin Warr in particular.

Our 3,500th member is David Hofton, a Director of Hunters Estate Agents. David said: “Having worked for over 20 years at Hunters in Knowle, I felt it long overdue to join the Knowle Society who do such a sterling job in preserving the character of the Village and the local environment through such changing times.”

We have come a long way since the Society first started in 1962 with the aim of preserving the character of the village. We believe that we are the second largest Civic Society in terms of paying members in the country. Reaching 3,500 members is a fantastic achievement and will ensure that our voices continue to be heard on issues that matter to the residents and businesses of Knowle.

Membership as at August 2013 has now risen to 3600!
