Noel in Knowle 

Knowle is a lovely small village that manages to do most things just right. 

It’s just outside Solihull yet can’t be more different.  Knowle has a dignified feel about it, with restaurants, cafes and few nice bars. They manage to pack a lot into the small area. I especially love the old fashioned style lights 

But it surpasses itself at Christmas with the tasteful decorations adorning all the shops, the Christmas tree and the annual choir singing noel in Knowle 



Looking back on my memories via Facebook, I have just been reminded how much I love Lichfield  

It is a perfect small city in the Midlands, crammed with history and personality. 

On a warm summers day, sitting in a lovely tea room garden opposite the Cathedral is a wonderful way to spend an afternoon, and also the free proms in Beacon park, early September is always on my must do list.
