This year’s Pinner Panto organised by the “Pinner Panto Commitee” will certainly be one to remember. It was briefly interrupted by a car catching fire on Bridge Street – luckily no one was hurt and the police and fire brigade quickly bought the situation under control. Stewards were seen directing traffic to turn round using Station Approach to ease congestion as Bridge Street was closed to traffic.
The Mayor of Harrow started proceedings at 5pm by switching on the Christmas tree lights in the High Street and Bridge Street Pinner – the Pinner Association pays for all the festive lights in Pinner. MP Nick Hurd was also seen wandering around the Panto.
The Mayor, along with The Pearly King & Queen, judged the window dressing competition, which is sponsored by Northwood & Pinner Business Club. The winners were The Heath Robinson Museum, Robson Estate Agents & Andrew Pearce; four other shops got highly commended. It was wonderful to see new traders taking part.
The winners of the “Traders Fancy Dress Competition” that The Pinner Association sponsors saw Earth White, Dri & the trio of Lule Hair & Beauty, Eyesey & Osteria Modigliani (see photo) all win.
Visitors were regaled by different school choirs singing during the course of the evening.
It was great to see many different parts of the community volunteer as stewards including six formers from Hatch End High School. This event couldn’t happen without the army of volunteers and the hard work of the Panto Committee. Thank you everyone.
