Harrow Foodbank – Trustees wanted

We have recieved a message from Chonde, Project Manager at Harrow FoodBank.

“We are looking to increase our Trustees pool, potentially to add up to 2 more Trustees, anyone interested will be interviewed by our joint Chair.  The roles would be determined based on the skills and expertise that these people can bring to the Harrow Foodbank board of Trustees.  Officially our Trustees are required to meet x6 yearly, however during the pandemic Trustee meetings have been more regular.”

If you are interested or would like more information, please email Chonde  [email protected]

Volunteer Gardeners Wanted.

Wish you had a larger garden?

We are looking to resurrect the volunteer gardening team that helps weed and deadhead flowers in the Peace Garden in Pinner Memorial Park.

We currently pay for professional gardeners to do all of the major maintenance, for example hedge trimming, and we are looking to supplement this with people who enjoy pottering in a garden.

We would ask all volunteers to bring their own secateurs, hoes and gloves.

If you are interested please email Christine at [email protected]

Thank you.

The concerts are held in Pinner Memorial Park.

  • Steward whilst the concerts are being held.
  • Pack away at the end of the day – this involves moving heavy equipment

If you would like to know more about the stewards role Steward’s Instructions

The concerts may not take place if there are severe weather warnings or COVID restrictions.

Doing up Bikes. Can you Help.

We have received this request for help.

Hi All, with all that’s in the news about fitness and health, we would like to help those wanting to get into cycling in the local area. We would like to run a scheme to help the community get old unused/broken bikes back in use for those that need them.

We are looking for people to donate any unused or broken bikes that may be hanging around in garages or sheds. We will then try to get them usable and give them back to the community in working condition.

So first off, we are asking for any donations – we are very near Pinner High Street/Love Lane Car Park, so if you can bring them down to us or if you are close to Pinner we can collect. We will take any bike with the exception of heavily rusted or seized up bikes.
