Excitement for the Platinum Jubilee is building in Knowle! The village is looking forward to celebrating the 70th anniversary of the reign of Queen Elizabeth II in the centre of Knowle on Saturday June 4th and a number of community groups and businesses have come together to develop a great programme. With preparations in their final stages, here’s just a taste of what’s happening from 12 noon on Saturday 4th June.
