Wreath Laying by Mayor of Harrow at the Dove of Peace War Memorial, Peace Garden, Pinner Memorial Park.

On Wednesday 27th October 2021 the Mayor of Harrow, Cllr Ghazanfar Ali, laid a poppy wreath at the Dove of Peace War Memorial in the Peace Garden in Pinner Memorial Park in memory of all those who have fallen serving their country or as a result of conflict.

The Dove of Peace was designed in 1995 by pupils of Nower Hill School for the Peace Garden which was created in that year to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the end of WWII.  It is an officially registered war memorial:  https://www.iwm.org.uk/memorials/item/memorial/11098

The Peace Garden is an area for quiet contemplation within Pinner Memorial Park, which itself was purchased for the community by public subscription as an enduring war memorial and amenity for Pinner at the end of WWII.

London In Bloom – Pinner Station

This year for the first time ever, Pinner Underground Station gardens were entered into the London in Bloom Competition.

Since 2017, gradual progress has been made cutting back overgrown plants and shrubs, such as the lavender. Those of you that have been regular commuters might have spotted the changes.

One of the volunteers attended a zoom award event earlier this month. We have been awarded with a Level 2 award. Well done & thank you to the volunteers that give up their spare time, it’s appreciated.

Temporary Closure of Pinner Library – 8th to 18th Nov 21

Dear Cllr Almond and Cllr Chana,

I am emailing to inform you that works to replace all the existing light fittings at Pinner Library with LED lights and to insulate the roof of the library are planned to commence from Monday 8th November. These works are part of the Council’s Decarbonisation Programme. Due to the nature of the works, including working at heights, it will unfortunately be necessary for the library to be closed whilst the works are completed. It is planned that the library will re-open from Thursday 18th November.  A minimum of 3 weeks’ notice of the temporary closure will be given to library customers.
