The Pinner Association recently held its 90th Annual Open Meeting and AGM, where Harrow Council CEO, Mr Patrick Flaherty, was invited as a guest speaker to provide an enlightening insight into the daily operations of the council and what was being done to improve the service for residents of Harrow.
After a question-and-answer session, the main areas of concern for the residents were the new parking system for those who are technophobes and the issues surrounding planning enforcement and planning applications.
The Chair of the Association, Julie Waller, gave an update on what had been achieved during the year and the work in progress.
During her speech, she listed all of the donations that the Association had made on behalf of its members in the past year. These include a donation of £200 to the 5th Pinner Scouts for use of their PA system, £500 sponsorship of the Friends of Pinner Village Gardens’ Coronation event, £500 towards the cost of three coronation trees for the Friends of Roxbourne Park, £1000 for Pinner Cricket Club’s thriving youth team’s new season’s caps, and £1000 towards the purchase of an adaptive tricycle for youngsters for the Harrow Cycling Hub.
Furthermore, the Association is looking for community-minded residents to step forward and join the committee. Interested individuals can email Chairman@pinnerassociation.co.uk for more information.
The Association was pleased that David Symmonds, MP, Kurpesh Hirani, AM, Cllr Janet Mote, Mayor of Harrow, many local councillors, and two members of the local Police Safer Neighbourhood Team were present as part of the audience of 60 at the meeting.
