In case you are wondering, it’s not to take part in the wheelbarrow race but to help with stewarding!
For health and safety reasons, they need to have approximately 16 stewards for the Wheel Barrow Race and the Pinner Rotary Club can provide about 10 of these. So they need about 6 more for the duration of the race.
Basically all they need is to be able-bodied and to be available for 25 minutes from 2:30 to 3:15 pm. Plus you will get a great view of the race.
If you are able to help, contact

An Opportunity to Give Back to Pinner:
Have you thought that this is the year that you would do something for the community that you live in? Look no further… The Pinner Association AGM and elections of committee members will take place at our Open Meeting to be held at 8pm on Wednesday 18th April in the Pinner Village Hall, Chapel Lane car park… We are looking for new committee members who wish to take an active interest/role in the place where they live. We meet eleven times per year to discuss and take action on a wide range of topics every one or two months, including:
- Planning, including Pinner’s Conservation Areas
- Environment, covering Pinner’s parks and open spaces
- Highways and Parking in Pinner
- Public Transport to and from Pinner
- Local Policing
For more information about becoming a committee member and trustee of The Pinner Association, and for a Nomination Form to stand for the committee at our AGM, please contact: [email protected]
Pinner Association Donation to the Friends of Pinner Village Gardens Children’s Playground Fundraising Appeal.
The Friends of Pinner Village Gardens (FoPVG) are actively fundraising to pay for much needed improvements to the children’s playground in that park. Currently, the children’s playground is in a poor condition due to several years of semi-neglect. It is under-utilised by local families due to the limited facilities and it’s rather run down appearance. FoPVG plan to install some key new pieces of children’s play and educational equipment in the existing children’s playground in Pinner Village Gardens park. All the planned improvements will make it a more interesting and fun place to play and spend time and a social hub for local families and friends.
The Pinner Association Committee were pleased to donate £500 to this fundraising appeal and Tim Owen, Pinner Association Honorary Treasurer, formally presented the cheque to the Friends of Pinner Village Gardens on Wednesday 14th February.
Anyone who would like to find out how to make a donation or would like to find out more about this exciting project can do so via this link: https://friendsofpvg.org.uk/#
Good news! At last the footpath on Chapel Lane is being repaired.
This will occur between 9th February and 2nd March.

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 [email protected] might be easier.
