Volunteering for West Midlands Police

We are now recruiting for volunteers to join our organisation.

You could join the army of volunteers who already give up their spare time to be special constables, puppy walkers, police museum volunteers and police station helpers.

Working for the police is completely different to anything you may have experienced before and we are really excited about the various roles that are available.
We are looking for people to work alongside neighbourhood policing teams, there’s vacancies in our Economic Crime Unit, to help victims.

If youth work is your thing then you may want to help with our cadet scheme and we’re looking for people with a passion for history as our museum grows in popularity.

By volunteering you’ll enhance your CV, make new friends, give something back and much more.
So if you’re passionate, enthusiastic or an expert in your field, we have an opportunity that could be perfect for you. To find out more about our current volunteer opportunities click here.

Knowle War Memorial

 

EXHIBITION REARRANGED DUE TO THE WEATHER
NOW AT KNOWLE LIBRARY
SATURDAY 31st MARCH 10:00 – 15:00
As most of you will know, the Soldiers Chapel in Knowle Church was dedicated to the memory of the fallen of WW1.  It also remembers those who have fallen in later conflicts.  Many might not have realised that there is also a memorial in the Churchyard, alongside the path between the Church and the Guild House.  This takes the form of a stone cross, which is showing its age. A project has been launched to refurbish it and improve its surroundings in time for Nov 2018. Come along to the Guild House see the proposed refurbishment plans. We welcome your views and comments.

Saturday March 3rd  3.30pm — 5.30pm

You are invited to the Guild House on Saturday March 3rd between 3.30pm and 5.30pm to view the proposed plans, an artist’s impression and a model of the proposed refurbishment of the War Memorial located in Knowle Churchyard.

The committee representing Knowle Church, The British Legion and The Knowle Society are seeking the views and thoughts of the local community. Please come along and find out more. Refreshments available

SOCIETY TALK MONDAY 19th MARCH 8pm KNOWLE VILLAGE HALL

This talk will offer some selected links between aspects of medicine and war, with particular focus on the ways in which society has come to remember those we have lost.
Extensive use will be made of illustrations, mainly photographs, and reference will be made to some forgotten heroes who perhaps deserve greater prominence.
In this year of the Armistice Centennial, the story will highlight events in our own community, and the efforts of the Society.
Many will remember Dr Stuart as one of our GPs.  He has long had an interest in this aspect of medicine.


THERE WILL ALSO BE A SMALL EXHIBITION OF THE DRAFT PLANS FOR THE REFURBISHMENT OF THE WAR MEMORIAL IN THE CHURCHYARD
