Thanks to all your efforts, over 30,000 Christmas cards have been collected at Braggs Funeral Directors in Knowle, which will result in them sponsoring at least 15 trees to be planted by the Woodland Trust.
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:
I’ve been to Yellowstone – and it’s spectacular
Dave explains: “Yellowstone is the most spectacular place I have been to. Some folks think it is a few geysers and the home of Yogi Bear but actually it is full of the most rich, varied and remarkable sights. There are numerous breathtaking moments in every day of a stay there, some of which defy belief. Take the picture below. It looks like a few tranquil pools on the edge of a sea shore somewhere. In really, this photo was taken near the shore of Lake Yellowstone.

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.
Most people will know that the Solihull News has ceased publication. Solihull News is now incorporated within an edition of the Birmingham Mail, called the Solihull Mail.
Deliveries of the Solihull Observer have been in short supply lately. They are available at Clark’s Residential estate agents in Station Road as well as some other agencies.
On-line editions are also available at https://solihullobserver.co.uk/editions/
Whatever it brings, may you make the most of opportunities and conquer the difficulties.

Helpful – because by helping every 4th Saturday 10am – 12.30pm you will be assisting in keeping the Local History Centre open on Saturday mornings when we help visitors with their enquiries (you will have an experienced volunteer on duty with you).
Rewarding – because we are the keepers of the village archives and by doing this you will be getting a glimpse into Knowle’s past and get to know more about the people and the village you live in.
