Spotted in the Metro Paper Good Deed section yesterday was the following article.
The Recycling centre opens on Monday 18 May with each day allocated to a Harrow postcode
From Monday, you’ll be able to use the recycling centre on Forward Drive but you must only visit the tip if it is not possible to manage your waste through collections. We are urging everyone to utilise their recycling, food and general waste and only use the tip if it absolutely essential.
Open from 8am to 6pm, access to tip is by post code only which is allocated to each day. You will be turned away if you come on any other day. These are temporary measures that will be reviewed in the coming weeks. The last entry to the tip is 5.30.
You must show ID and proof of address upon arrival – i.e. council tax bill, utility bill, driving license, NHS/emergency services ID.
Please sort your waste before you come (i.e. into household, garden, recycling). We’ll have a guide available shortly on what you can and can’t bring to the site.
Only cars will be allowed for the current time and only one person will be allowed to out their car to dispose of waste – this is to keep social distancing.
HS2 Works Update: Tunnel boring machine power supply works restarting in Pinner South from 18th May
UKPN will be starting work on digging trenches and laying ducts that will hold the tunnel boring machine power cable from the 18th May. During the Covid-19 pandemic they will prioritise road junctions due to vehicle numbers being significantly reduced at the moment, which will help to relieve causing congestion when traffic levels return to normal. This phase of the scheme should take place until July. For more information see:
The affected road junctions in Pinner South will be:
Once these main junctions are complete UKPN will look to continue the work along the rest of the planned route. This work will not affect the electricity supply in the area. For more information on these works including a map of the route, please see:
Gosh what a difference a week makes!
V.E. day celebrations continued in Pinner although confined to residents’ front gardens. It was wonderful to see all the smart china come out for afternoon tea and people having conversations across the fence panels or from the pavement.
Lindy-hop was filmed on the High Street by Kara (and her partner) of Lines of Pinner. This was definitely something that could not have happened without the lockdown.
For those of you that are members; work has started to produce the July edition of the magazine. During WWII it was published and so see no difference now.
On a business front…..
Good news from BrOOK’s; you are now able to order more than one book at a time.
Last week saw more eateries re-open for business:
Check out our COVID-19 Restaurant Section of the website for their hours. Hallmark cards temporarily opened only to be told they needed to close.
Other shops to open with changed operating times are the
Check out the COVID-19 Local Retailers section of our website.
We look forward to the day when all the shops can reopen. (I for one can’t wait until Berkeley Square reopens as I am badly in need of a haircut. (It’s been over 11 weeks since my last cut and I’m definitely looking wild!)
Weekly Round up
As we enter our eigth week of lockdown, here is a summary of what has been happening.
Whilst we may not be holding committee meetings due to the current situation, committee members are busy looking at all of the planning applications being submitted and answering emails/phone calls to do with this area. It’s a case of out of sight but not out of action.
The new answer to “how are you” when shouted across the street is “I’m surviving”
For those worried about shopping in busy supermarkets don’t forget you can Google the shop and get an indication of how busy they are.
On a business front.
