Bank Holiday Monday saw the celebration in honour of Queen Elizabeth II's Diamond Jubilee - the High Street closed for a hugely successful event in which The Knowle Society had a stand with a display by Tommy Godwin, 1948 Olympic medallist and Knowle resident, a Wii cycling competition, a pluck-a-duck competition and outside on two beautiful thrones a competition for young children to be dressed as the best King and Queen. The Kings & Queens competition was judged by Councillor Diana Holl-Allen.
One of the finest March days drew an 18 strong group of members to join the 'Neighbourhood Day' walk on 25th March. Leaving from the Guild House the route took in Kenilworth Road and Kixley Lane before heading north on the canal to Grove Farm. We then worked our way back towards Knowle through the lanes and housing estates to the east of the Warwick Road. In the process most people learned more about their neighbourhood and chatted to other Society members and therefore their neighbours.
