KNOWLE’S OWN PLATINUM JUBILEE COMPETITION

To celebrate the Platinum Jubilee of Her Majesty here is a set of 70 (why 70???) images in and around Knowle for you to identify or solve the riddle about.  While this is mainly for fun and to possibly extend your knowledge of Knowle, there are PRIZES.  Login here:-

Closing date for entries is 11 June 2022.  Solutions will be posted soon after and the prize winners notified by 18 June, using the details entered at the beginning of the quiz.  Prize winners names will be posted on the website soon after, unless anonymity is requested.

PLATINUM JUBILEE UPDATE

Knowle High Street will be CLOSED between 10.30 to 19.00 (at the latest) on June 4th for the Jubilee Celebrations.  It will be opened earlier if it can be cleared. Diversions will be signposted.

If you are able to offer an hour to man the road barriers please contact Dave Pinwell at davepinwell@googlemail.com

The Markets and stalls will be running from 12.00 to 18.00 with music, multiple activities and food and drink. More details at https://www.visitknowle.co.uk/knowle-jubilee-celebrations/

The Society will have a stall near the former telephone kiosk with a photo quiz in and around Knowle with multiple vouchers for local businesses; a ‘Grand raffle’ for a Beefeater Bear and a Lucky Dip for young children.  We are also open upstairs in the Library, which will be open all day, and in the Village Hall which is celebrating its Golden Jubilee.  Come and say hello.

The Council have just announced that they will not be enforcing restrictions on single yellow lines from 8am on 2 June to 8am on 6 June, but it looks as if the car parks will operate as usual, so don’t get caught out, get a ticket.

VOLUNTEERS NEEDED

Could you give just a couple of hours to help make Knowle’s Platinum Jubilee bash a success? We need a significant number of volunteers to man the barricades as the High Street is closed for the Artisan and Community market, games and other fun and festivity on Saturday, June 4th, If you plan to come, how about tacking on an extra hour or two to help out. Contact Dave on davepinwell@googlemail.com to find out more.
