Stella Jarman

The Society has been notified of the death of one of our long-serving Members, Stella Jarman, who was awarded Life Membership of the Society in 2010, for her many years of service for the Society and the community.

Stella Jarman was a founder member of the Society from 1962, she became a Committee member in 1976.  She then formed and chaired the Nature Reserve Sub-Committee from 1980.  Stella resigned from what had become the Nature Conservation Sub-Committee in 2004 although her exceptional knowledge of wild flowers, trees and nature in general was not lost to Knowle as she continued to be very active with the Knowle Conservation Volunteers and as a tree warden for Solihull Council.

TALK MONDAY 17 SEP 8pm KNOWLE VILLAGE HALL – HEARING DOGS FOR DEAF PEOPLE

Hearing Dogs for Deaf People is a UK charity which trains dogs to alert deaf people – both adults and children – to a variety of sounds at home and in public. Each hearing dog also helps to bring a visibility to their recipient’s deafness thanks to the burgundy jackets they wear when out in public.

Although Jane Harrison is the speaker, the real star of the show will undoubtedly be Indy, who is also coming, and has featured in her talks about the charity for some time. However Jane wrote to us yesterday as follows:

“Indy will be retiring on 27th September. I too will be taking a break from talks so I have mixed feelings at the moment”, so next Monday will be one of his last gigs!”
