This year marks the golden jubilee of the Knowle Conservation Area. We were one of the very first areas to achieve this status and it has been very useful in preserving the quality of the centre of the village.
We are marking this anniversary with an event in the middle of the village on Saturday 21st July, with activities and entertainment. More news to come!
This talk will offer some selected links between aspects of medicine and war, with particular focus on the ways in which society has come to remember those we have lost.
Extensive use will be made of illustrations, mainly photographs, and reference will be made to some forgotten heroes who perhaps deserve greater prominence.
In this year of the Armistice Centennial, the story will highlight events in our own community, and the efforts of the Society.
Many will remember Dr Stuart as one of our GPs. He has long had an interest in this aspect of medicine.
THERE WILL ALSO BE A SMALL EXHIBITION OF THE DRAFT PLANS FOR THE REFURBISHMENT OF THE WAR MEMORIAL IN THE CHURCHYARD
To mark this historic occasion, Knowle Society has handed over its exhibition space in Knowle Library to a display of masonic ephemera and historical landmarks, especially some relating to Freemasonry and Knowle.
