Is there anything more likely to stimulate the ‘awww’ factor than a fluffy pet rabbit? Well, not with everyone it seems, because enough rabbits become unwanted to keep a local rescue and rehoming charity very busy. Fat Fluffs Rabbit Rescue gives unwanted rabbits a safe place to recuperate before finding them new, loving homes.
Claire Stevens will be giving an insight into the work of the local charity at Knowle Society’s July speaker evening on Monday 17 July. Come and join her and have your heart warmed by her stories of rabbit rescue. It may be hard to last the evening without going gooey over a rejuvenated rabbit.
Join us in the Village Hall at 8pm. All are welcome.
The talk was most enjoyable and informative.
We even received a certificate!

Forthcoming Speaker Meeting
Middleton Lakes – Gravel Pits to RSPB Nature Reserve
Knowle Society’s 2017/18 Speaker Meeting programme kicks off at 8pm on Monday 15 May in the Village Hall when former RSPB Communications Manger, Chris Edwards, tells the fascinating story of RSPB’s Middleton Lakes Reserve.
Just over a decade ago, the 400 acre site was a cluster of gravel pits, but now it is a network of trails around a jigsaw of hides, lookouts, meadows, wetlands, lakes and ponds that are bird spotter’s paradise. Strolling the trails, which lie nestled between the River Tame and the Birmingham and Fazeley Canal, the visitor can readily spot swans, gliding gracefully across the lakes, and then the ducks and other fowl bobbing along in the streams. For the more eagle eyed, there is now a bounty of birdlife to feast on, including the haughty heron waiting patiently on a high branch to the sparrow-hawk soaring and circling overhead to the sandpiper spying from the bank.
All are welcome.
