Planting Snowdrops

IMG_3116 IMG_3118There was an appropriate Snow Drop just before before a doughty band of Volunteers embarked on planting out the 1500 snowdrop bulbs donated by the Pinner Association for decorating the Memorial Park.    About half of the bulbs were planted on the morning of Saturday 31 January and the remainder the following day.

Marie Curie – Great Daffodil Appeal – Volunteers needed in Pinner

Each March Marie Curie holds it Great Daffodil Appeal to raise funds to help care for people with terminal illness all over the UK. This year alone, Marie Curie will provide care for more than 40,000 people across the UK with a terminal illness, and our nurses will care for more than 2,019 people in their own homes in London. In London, we hope to raise over £180,000 this March to provide almost 9,000 hours of care, but we can only do this with local help.  In the Pinner area we are looking for volunteer collectors for the following collections:

  1. Tesco Pinner, 1 Ash Hill Drive on Friday 27th February, from 10am – 6pm.  A maximum of 2 collectors per 2 hour shift (10-12, 12-2, 2-4 & 4-6pm)

Crime Warning

 

Information has been sent from Harrow Police today and this item relates to our area:
Message from Harrow Police on 26th January 2015:
There is a small emerging issue in Pinner near the borders of Hillingdon where burglars have targeted the rear doors of houses. In one of the burglaries a Blue Vauxhall Insignia was used. The offences are occurring in the early evening so keep your houses lit when it starts to get dark to give the impression someone is in.

Harrow Council Cuts – Consultation

 

To those interested in “green and leafy Pinner”:

Anyone who has yet to complete an on-line response to the current Harrow Council consultation on proposed budget and hence service cuts to “Environmental Services” has only two days to do so before the deadline.  We have been told that as this consultation is a “tick box” type the number of individual responses will be added up to give the results of the consultation – therefore your individual responses will carry more weight than a discursive response from the Pinner Association.

The information about the “Environment and Enterprise Savings Proposals” is available here:  http://www.harrow.gov.uk/environmentconsultations

And the on-line survey is here:  https://www.snapsurveys.com/wh/s.asp?k=141874954240

The Association is going to send the Portfolio Holders for the departments involved, and the Leader of Harrow Council, a copy of our responses to the relevant sections of the previous budgets cuts consultation to ensure that they know the Pinner Association’s views on these proposals.

Recycling Electrical items

Help us reduce the volume of electrical items being sent to landfill by recycling unwanted items.

Recycling Officers and West London Waste are holding a recycling event for small electrical items on Monday, 12th January 2015 from 9am to 5pm at the Civic Centre main reception area.

If you have any small unwanted electrical items that you have been wanting to get rid of then stop by and bring along your broken or unwanted electrical waste so the recycling team can get rid of it for you. The electronic and electrical items can be anything from a toaster or hairdryer to a radio, old video recorder or even microwave oven.

The event aims to encourage people to recycle their unwanted electrical items as around 1 million tons of WEEE was sent to landfill last year and it is one of the fastest growing waste streams in the UK.

Fridges and freezers, commercial or industrial items and large items that cannot easily be lifted will not be accepted.   

For further information please contact Codi Shepherd – codi.shepherd@harrow.gov.uk
