Newsletter and Subscriptions

You will have seen my article in the recent Newsletter asking Members to consider paying their subscriptions by Standing Order (if they do not already do so). My thanks to those who have returned the form or set up a SO on-line. If you have not yet done so please would you help out the Newsletter distributors who also have to collect the subs. It will also make life less complicated for me.
If you need another copy of the form or the details to set up a SO on-line, just drop me an email at the address below.

Mentioning the Newsletter distributors allows me to make a plea for some new volunteers.  There are 92 Rounds that need covering and, while we are OK at the moment, there is a natural turn-over. If you feel that you could help, either on a one-off basis or through taking on a Round, please get in touch.

All welcome.

Stella Jarman

The Society has been notified of the death of one of our long-serving Members, Stella Jarman, who was awarded Life Membership of the Society in 2010, for her many years of service for the Society and the community.

Stella Jarman was a founder member of the Society from 1962, she became a Committee member in 1976.  She then formed and chaired the Nature Reserve Sub-Committee from 1980.  Stella resigned from what had become the Nature Conservation Sub-Committee in 2004 although her exceptional knowledge of wild flowers, trees and nature in general was not lost to Knowle as she continued to be very active with the Knowle Conservation Volunteers and as a tree warden for Solihull Council.
