Waste & Recycling Guidance following our AGM

With over 70 members present, despite the lure of one of the warmest and sunniest February days on record, the Society’s AGM began with our Chairman, Andrew Marston, recapping the many highlights of the year. A full report of the AGM can be read here:   Knowle Society AGM.

Following a refreshment break from formal business, the audience regathered for a most interesting presentation about waste and recycling in the borough from our guest speaker, Solihull’s Head of Waste and Recycling, Kalen Wood.

If you missed Kalen’s presentation, we encourage you to take a look now and see if you can improve your recycling. You can find a copy now on the Society’s website at [Recycling presentation].


Unfortunately, our planned talk on Recycling has had to be postponed from next Monday and will be rescheduled at a later date.

In its place, our Deputy Chair / Newsletter Editor Dave Pinwell will provide a highly illustrated talk entitled:

Come and see more eye catching images of America’s first and foremost National Park and hear about one of the most dramatic environments on Earth, from its canyons to its waterfalls and, of course, the geysers and the wildlife.

All welcome at the Village Hall at 8pm, next Monday, 14th January.
