Pinner Street Christmas Tree lit by the Mayor of Harrow.

The Mayor of Harrow, Cllr Ghazanfar Ali, was at the top of Pinner High Street at 4.45pm on Thursday 25th November to officially turn on the lights of the Pinner street Christmas trees in a small ceremony arranged by Cllr Norman Stevenson (Pinner Ward) to support the new “Visit Pinner” organisation which is aiming to support the independent traders in Pinner.

The Mayor made a short speech in which he praised the community spirit in Pinner and thanked The Pinner Association for organising and sponsoring, with some assistance with the funding from Harrow Council, the festive street lights and street Christmas trees in Bridge Street and the High Street.  He hoped the festive lights and Christmas trees would lift the spirits of all who see them and wished everyone in Pinner a “Happy Christmas”.

Christmas Tree Switch On.

The Mayor of Harrow, Cllr Ghazanfar Ali, will be at the top of Pinner High Street at 4.45pm on Thursday 25th November to officially turn on the lights on the Pinner street Christmas trees. The Pinner Association will be providing both of Christmas trees, at the top of the High Street and at the top of Bridge Street, again this year and we are very grateful that the Mayor will be coming to turn on their lights in a short ceremony which anyone in Pinner is very welcome to attend.

There is no “Panto Evening” being held in Pinner this year, so there will be no entertainments, attractions or other stalls in either the High Street or Bridge Street on the evening of the 25th November.

Can You Help?

Alice our roving reporter who gathers the information for Talking Shops is effectively in lock down at the moment.  We need a new person, or people, to find out what is going on in our local shops and businesses for The Villager magazine.

What does it involve?

Visiting the local independent retailers and finding out what they are doing now and their plans for the future.  Taking a couple of photo’s with their permission and writing some copy for the magazine.

There are mainly three locations that need to be covered.

  • Cannon Lane / Whittington Way
  • Central Pinner
  • Pinner Green

Are you able to help with any of these areas?

Happy Diwali.

The eagled eyed amongst you might have noticed on the 2 November that the festive lights were on in Pinner. If you are wondering why!

We thought this year it would be good idea to have then up and switched on for the start of Diwali.

May we wish you a Happy Diwali.

The lights are planned to stay up until the 5 January 2022.
