Celebrating St George in Pinner

St Georgina

The traditional parade of the mounted St George was enjoyed by a vast crowd in fortunately good weather until late afternoon. The Mayor of Harrow attended the proceedings her car being escorted up the High Street by the mounted St George and an escort of scouts who subsequently renewed their Promises in front of the Mayor.  Entertainment was provided by the Merrydowners, who are a ‘must’ at any local event, a Punch and Judy show, popular songs by Gemma Turner, and rounded off by the annual wheelbarrow race which was well contested.
