Well, sorry to start with this reminder but I think it’s required.
I know that the parks have been the saviour of a lot of people during lock down and that as a local amenity they are being used more than ever.
The council have put on additional collections to empty the bins in the parks but it’s also up to you.
If the bins are full, don’t leave your rubbish in bags next to the bins as the foxes, magpies etc. have a field day and the litter is scattered around the park. Take your rubbish home with you. One person commented to me on Sunday as I collected five bags of litter from Pinner Memorial Park that it was “embarrassing the amount of rubbish scattered across the park”.
The parks are for the enjoyment of everyone; I know that I wouldn’t enjoy sitting amongst the rubbish. Thank you for your understanding.
On a business front
Code Ninjas on Bridge Street are opening for business this weekend. Code Ninjas Pinner will teach kids aged 5-14 how to code, build video games, robots and drones. Maybe something for the summer holidays! Welcome to Pinner.
Most of our Nail bars have reopened for business; don’t forget that you will need to ring for an appointment.
Natural Healthcare has reopened but are appointments only as are Herbs and Acupuncture
Charity shop wise. Barnados and Oxfam have reopened for business. RSPCA and St Luke’s Hospice will be reopening next week. Please don’t leave donations outside the shops and ring then before making a donation. Before you ask, I haven’t heard back from “St Mary’s living and giving”
Lines of Pinner and Raydel Carpets are open for business by appointments only
Not to be forgotten are the local business that reside on the High Street or Bridge Street. A lot of these have been busy working from home. Collins & Hoy are now open by appointments only. Another new discovery is that T.P. Law have taken up residency above Andrew Pearce – again welcome to Pinner.
You might have noticed that Pinner has gone continental as tables and chair adorn our pavements. Thanks to the council for allowing this to happen.
Ahmisa the Vegan Café, Augustina’s, Silver Grill Café & La Cucina have at last reopened.
Friend’s restaurant and the Thai Villa have not yet reopened for table service but are still doing takeaways and deliveries.
