KNOWLE LOCAL HISTORY SOCIETY
The Society’s programme for 2019 will not be decided until much later in 2018. It is likely to take the same form as that for 2018: two talks with in house speakers, two with outside speakers, possibly plus a luncheon at the Wilson Arms in the Spring and a social evening in July. Exhibitions will probably be on show at Knowle and Solihull as usual.
Projects may include a talk and exhibition to commemorate the 75th anniversary of the arrival of an American army medical unit in Knowle in 1944, en route to the Normandy landings. The Society hopes to produce more short talks based on a tour round central Knowle, which are popular with both outside organizations and those wanting a short talk after a meal.
