This is a tweet from Pinner Wood School.
Thank you to the Pinner Association who kindly donated £500
towards our play equipment. As they were so impressed by how the children had
coped with the events of recent months. They presented the cheque in assembly on Friday 26th January.
The Pinner Association is in need of a new Area Leader, the link between our many Collectors and our Membership Secretary. As there are too many Collectors for one person to handle, Pinner is divided into five areas.
Not only is it an essential task – without the Area Leaders The Villager could not be delivered – but it is also an interesting task, and I can vouch for this, as I was one once. I got to know many local people, whom I may not otherwise have met, all of whom, are of course, most charming or they would not have volunteered to be Collectors in the first place!
If you are already a Collector you will be aware of your Area Leader’s existence because of the thrice-yearly visits with the magazines and the wherewithal to collect the subs. Why not move up the hierarchy and become an Area Leader?
His or her duties involve delivering the Villager magazine three times a year to the Collectors, ensuring that all the subs are eventually collected and keeping a record of the subs, which the Collectors will have paid into the Bank. (You do not have to handle the money.) Having a computer is an advantage. Also a car is really essential as distributing several hundred Villagers can be a weighty task. That said, one Area leader has trained her Collectors to collect their Villagers from her!
Volunteers should form an orderly queue outside Jill Cock’s house at any time, but possibly phoning 8868 5795 or emailing firstname.lastname@example.org might be easier.
A statement from Harrow Council confirms that the libraries in the borough will remain open as usual despite being run under contract by Carillion:
“Information about Harrow’s Libraries
Harrow libraries are open and it is business as usual, following the announcements by Carillion.
We are engaging Carillion, working alongside our neighbouring local authorities, and we are confident we will ensure continuity in Harrow’s library services for staff and residents.
The refurbishment of Kenton Library is unaffected and the library is still on schedule to re-open on Thursday 1 March 2018.”
Pinner Wood School pupils and staff will be re-turning to their own site on Monday 8th January.
I have been informed that the reopening ceremony between 8am and 9am on Monday 8th January will be for children and parents of the school to mark its return. Sorry for any misunderstanding.
Below is hopefully the final communication from Harrow Council.
