Do you have 30 minutes to spare each week?


We have a new Volunteer. Thank you Ali.


Wanted New Pinner Association Noticeboard Administrator.

After 13 years of looking after our noticeboards, Lewis wants to lead a more restful life.  We are looking for someone to replace Lewis.

Our Noticeboards are located:-

  • Sainsbury’s entrance
  • Near M&S
  • Pinner Underground Station
  • West House – Pinner Memorial Park

At least once a week you would need to add and remove notices from our boards.  (The circular route is about 1 mile; about ½ hour per week)

This would suit someone who walks a dog or a person who just wants to get more active.

Interested: –

Harrow Apollo Male Choir Seek New Members

Harrow Apollo Male Choir are looking for new members.

This choir which is now in its 77th year is in danger of folding if we can’t recruit some younger members to ensure it remains a going concern.

They currently do about 12 concerts a year in the local area. Their efforts have contributed to raising over £130k over the last 10-12 years.

Volunteers needed

Pinner Panto committee are looking for volunteers to help stewarding on the evening of the 29th November.

If you can only spare 1 hour that would be wonderful!. I personally look forward to stewarding each year – especially the zebra crossing duty.

If you are able to help, leave a message/comment with your name, email address and/or phone number and we will forward it to the organising committee.


Tombola Appeal – Harrow In LEAF

I have received an email from Harrow in LEAF. This is for the annual show at Headstone Village Show on Monday 27 August.



Tombola Appeal  
Do you or your friends and family have any unwanted new or “in good condition” used items that could be donated for our popular Tombola Stall? 

We do need a few more items to top up the Harrow in LEAF table this year, or even donate some plants for us to sell on.

If so, please contact Diana on 020 8863 7558 to discuss delivery or collection.

Area Leaders Wanted!

The Pinner Association is in need of a new Area Leader, the link between our many Collectors and our Membership Secretary. As there are too many Collectors for one person to handle, Pinner is divided into five areas.

Not only is it an essential task – without the Area Leaders The Villager could not be delivered – but it is also an interesting task, and I can vouch for this, as I was one once. I got to know many local people, whom I may not otherwise have met, all of whom, are of course, most charming or they would not have volunteered to be Collectors in the first place!

If you are already a Collector you will be aware of your Area Leader’s existence because of the thrice-yearly visits with the magazines and the wherewithal to collect the subs. Why not move up the hierarchy and become an Area Leader?

His or her duties involve delivering the Villager magazine three times a year to the Collectors, ensuring that all the subs are eventually collected and keeping a record of the subs, which the Collectors will have paid into the Bank. (You do not have to handle the money.) Having a computer is an advantage. Also a car is really essential as distributing several hundred Villagers can be a weighty task. That said, one Area leader has trained her Collectors to collect their Villagers from her!

Volunteers should form an orderly queue outside Jill Cock’s house at any time, but possibly phoning 8868 5795 or emailing [email protected] might be easier.
