The Knowle Society
Online Monday Talks

The talk held last Monday was about the Council’s proposals for the major housing developments in Knowle.  It was very well attended and appreciated by those who listened in.  This has given us the impetus to continue the programme with another two talks on associated topics.

The title of the next talk, on Monday Feb 15th, will be ‘The Knowle Transport Study‘.  This was commissioned by the Council to investigate the current and future  transport needs in Knowle in anticipation of their proposals for the additional housing.

Bookings for this talk are now open. Please click here to register.

The one after, on Monday Mar 15th, will be ‘The New Arden Academy’, the proposed new school which would be part of the new developments south of Station Road.  The speaker will be Martin Murphy, Chief Executive Officer of the Arden Academy Trust.

Look out for the registration information which will be provided in following emails.

KNOWLE’S NATURAL ENVIRONMENT

Are you interested in our natural surroundings?  Do you have a little time to help it thrive? The Society’s Natural Environment Committee are very keen to boost its pool of volunteers so they can achieve their aims of enhancing Knowle and protecting our wildlife and plants.

If you’d like to know more, email environment@knowlesociety.org.uk
This is not an onerous thing to take on, you just need to be available when it is convenient to you.  The more volunteers, the more that can be achieved.

Visit Knowle – Planned High Street Investment

Visit Knowle has been awarded £17,000 by Solihull Council from the Neighbourhood Community Infrastructure Fund. It is planned to invest our village centre with seating and planting and maybe more in the form of a ‘Parklet’.
