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.

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.
This is to notify you that some filming will be taking place in Pinner Memorial Park this coming Saturday. A crew of 20 will be filming scenes for a Children In Need promotional advert and this will involve use of one of the paths leading towards the Museum. The scene being filmed involves a man dressed in a funny costume taking part in a fun run. They may use a camera and track adjacent to the path and will undertake some minor scenery dressing re placing objects along the path. The film company (Some Such Productions Ltd) have also been permitted to access and to drive a van with camera equipment to the location. Please also note that we have granted permission to film an actor walking under the bridge along Chapel Lane. This scene will take place in the morning for an hour.
