KNOWLE LOCAL HISTORY CENTRE

THE KNOWLE SOCIETY LOCAL HISTORY TEAM 
HAVE VACANCIES FOR VOLUNTEERS

If you have some spare time on a Saturday morning, would you like to fill it in a helpful and rewarding manner?

Helpful – because by helping every 4th Saturday 10am – 12.30pm you will be assisting in keeping the Local History Centre open on Saturday mornings when we help visitors with their enquiries (you will have an experienced volunteer on duty with you).
Rewarding – because we are the keepers of the village archives and by doing this you will be getting a glimpse into Knowle’s past and get to know more about the people and the village you live in.

If you are interested and computer literate (does not have to be in depth but at least able to receive and send emails), and would like to know more please contact Janet on
01564779040 or email jerzen@blueyonder.co.uk

WAR MEMORIAL RENOVATION

As you will see from the photographs below, the work to give the war Memorial another century of life is almost complete and it will be ready for the rededication and wreath laying ceremony on Sunday 4th November.

[Knowle has traditionally laid its wreaths the Sunday before Remembrance Sunday]

The Dedication Ceremony and wreath laying will follow the 11.00am Church Service and will commence at approximately 12.00 noon.
