WHY DO OVER 3,500 PINNER RESIDENTS BELONG TO THE PINNER ASSOCIATION?
The Association in the past has:-
- In the 1940s, raised money through local donations to purchase Pinner Memorial Park for the benefit of the community as a War Memorial.
- In the 1960s, stopped a proposed high-rise development in the High Street.
- In the 1980s, launched the fund that led to the construction of the Village Hall.
- In 1995, organised two weekends of commemoration and celebration of the 50th anniversary of the end of WWII, including the construction of the Peace Garden in Pinner Memorial Park.
- In 2000 we organised a weekend of festivities to celebrate the Millennium.

We launched The West House & Heath Robinson Museum Trust, which has given Pinner the restored West House, the new Heath Robinson Museum and the ever-popular Daisy’s in the Park.
We provided equipment for the children’s playground in Pinner Memorial Park.
