Flower Boxes Replanted – Summer comes to Pinner

Have you noticed that the Flower Boxes on the street railings around Pinner, Pinner Green and Cannon Lane have been planted up for the summer?  Harrow Council staff do the gardening, but the Northwood & District Business Club organise local businesses and societies to sponsor the annual cost of providing these attractive additions to the street scene.  The Pinner Association are pleased to be able sponsor eight of these flowers boxes every year. 

Following a request from The Pinner Association, Harrow Council have also kindly planted up the split wall at the Pinner High Street War Memorial, and this is looking very pretty with dainty multi-coloured petunias and pelargoniums flowering in the June sunshine.



Donation to Harrow Foodbank.

If you have ever wondered how the monies collected by Pinner Association are spent. This is just one of the things we get involved in.

How many people reading this are aware that there are 2000 food banks in the UK and that this year alone they have handed out more than one million food parcels to those in need?  If you have seen the Ken Loach film “I, Daniel Blake” you may have some insight into the problems of the homeless and the hungry.

Sadly, in the London Borough of Harrow, Harrow Foodbank, seeded by the Trussell Trust, is running three centres for the distribution of food.

The Pinner Association, acutely aware of its role within the charitable sector, is about to make a donation of £1000 to Harrow Foodbank.  Donations are sorely needed from community associations and the general public as there are very few if any large corporate donors in the Borough.

The Pinner Association is proud to be of help in this way and hopes that other organisations will be keen to follow its example.
