Litter Pick

On Tuesday, Volunteers from the Society and the Council blitzed the village centre and Warwick Rd, clearing a large amount of rubbish and litter, filling 14 large bags, and helping to make the village look clean and tidy.

 

 

Lodge Road closure – Gas Main replacement

We have learnt that, due to works involved in replacing a gas main, parts of Lodge Road and St John’s Close will be closed and/or subject to one-way working for parts of the next four weeks, depending on the progress of the works. The works will require a one-way traffic flow along Lodge Road, Knowle from Monday 6th February to Friday 24th February 2017 as follows:
• from its junction with Warwick Road to junction with Dell Farm Close.
• from outside 15-17 Lodge Road to outside electricity substation on Lodge Road.
• from outside 53 Lodge Road to outside flats at 78-102 St Johns Close.

Clean for the Queen & the Knowle Fun Run

Along with groups all over the borough and the country, the Society arranged a day to clean the central area of our local community as part of this national initiative in celebration of The Queen’s 90th birthday. On Thursday 12th May 2016 around 20 volunteers collected litter, painted benches and cared for the Precinct flower beds.

Over 25 bags of rubbish were collected – special purple ‘Clean for the Queen’ bags were supplied by local MP Caroline Spelman. Kerry Mountjoy from SMBC arranged for collection of the waste and Tesco and The Greswolde Hotel provided welcome sustenance for the volunteers on a delightful sunny morning.

Society volunteers also helped with stewarding at the Knowle Fun Run on Sunday 15th May.

Mini recycling centres to go

As we are all using our kerbside recycling facilities more and not the mini ones in public areas, the Council has decided to close them. The Tesco car park ones go by 30 November 2015, the Dorridge Station car park ones go by 28 February 2016 and the Greswolde car park ones by 31 May 2016.
