Our 2012 social event was a Quiz with a Fish & Chip supper held on 15 October at Knowle Village Hall.
Seventy-two people in 12 teams participated, answering a range of questions on interesting & diverse topics, including a round based on our booklet “50 Years of Knowle Society”!! The competition was closely contested, resulting in a win for the Chantry Heathers.
A big Thank You to Quizmaster Steve for providing an entertaining but instructive evening.
This popular annual event is being held on Monday 26th November at the usual time of around 4.15-4.30 (we can never be quite sure exactly when Father Christmas will arrive as travel conditions in the Arctic can be quite severe at times). Because he is going to be so busy (it seems that a lot more children have been really well-behaved this year) he has asked us to bring it forward by one week from the date advertised in the Society's green Programme Card. Of course we were happy to oblige and the traders are making a special effort to put up the lights in good time.
Two important local developments are going forward to the Planning Committee of SMBC:
- McCarthy & Stone's application in respect of Chesshire House and the Greswolde Garage is due to be heard at 4.30pm in the Civic Suite on Wednesday 17th October 2012.
- Kimberley Development's application in respect of the 'Waitrose' development has been postponed to give the planning officers more time to prepare and is now expected to be heard at the November 2012 meeting.
