This will take place at 3pm on Saturday 23rd February at Knowle Village Hall. Please come along and ensure that the Society can continue to support the Village.
[It will finish in time for you to watch the Wales v England match!]
The rescheduled talk ‘Getting Recycling Right’ by Kalen Wood, Solihull Council’s Head of Waste and Recycling, will take place after the formal AGM business and a short refreshment break.
Have you ever wondered about whether something with mixed materials can go into your brown bin or not, such as glass with fixed metal collar or paper envelopes with clear plastic windows? Have you asked yourself whether sticks, pine cones or discarded fruit can go in your green bin? Have you wondered what happens to the contents of your bins after they leave your front drive? Now is your chance to find out and ask your own questions about recycling.
Advance Notice that the Society’s AGM will be held at
3pm on Saturday 23rd February in Knowle Village Hall
The usual excellent cakes and drinks will be provided after the Meeting and then the postponed talk on:-
GETTING RECYCLING RIGHT

While there have been very few changes in what we do and how, we are now required to tell you about our practices, hence the new Policy!
We keep your data to process your membership application and administer your ongoing membership, such as your subscriptions and delivery of your Newsletters. These all come under the heading of a ‘legitimate interest’, in other words, without you providing the minimum information and us keeping it, you cannot be a member of the Society!
One use that we do make of your email address is to send you these emails. We have taken the same approach as many other organisations, in that we have assumed that you are willing to receive them, as you have not asked not to. If this is NOT so, please click on the ‘unsubscribe’ link at the bottom of this email and we will stop sending them to you. We will keep your email address in order to contact you about your membership, but not send these general emails.
If there is any more information you would like about this area, please let me know. There’s lots!
SATURDAY 24 FEBRUARY 2018
at 3pm in KNOWLE VILLAGE HALL
This is your chance to hear what the Society is involved in and to contribute. Elections will take place for the Officers and some Trustees. We would be very keen to have nominations for any of the posts, so please let us know if you or anyone else might be interested.
This year is the 50th anniversary of the Knowle Conservation Area which covers the High Street and adjoining streets. We will have a presentation by Peter Stean and Martin Lander, Trustees of Stamford Civic Society to share thoughts about how the Conservation Area status has benefitted Stamford, the first Conservation Area in the country.
The Trustee Directors have been considering revisions to the Society’s Memorandum and Articles of Association which will be placed before members for voting at the AGM at 3pm on Saturday 7th February 2015.
Copies of the Memorandum of Association and the Articles of Association may be downloaded here. They have been marked up to highlight the changes from the present combined 2005 version, which for completeness is also available here for downloading.
Members are urged to use the opportunity before the AGM to read these revisions and contact the Secretary or Chairman for any clarification wanted.
