MY YARD: Pinner charity launches new community hub

 Published on: 9th August 2023   |   By: Panayiota Demosthenous   |   Category: Uncategorized

Local charity My Yard has launched a new community hub on Pinner Grove Estate, with the aim of providing local residents with opportunities and resources to improve their wellbeing.

Harrow Council and My Yard launched the Hub with a Pinner Grove party on June 1, where the council provided the bouncy castle and My Yard supplied the goodie bags, tombola and raffle prizes.

A resident survey on the day highlighted that feeling safe on the estate was top priority, followed by help with food and the cost of living.

This initiative builds on a project which took place over the past 12 months. My Yard was funded by the council to invest more than 300 hours in getting to know the Pinner Grove community and understanding their concerns.

Anthea Watkins, project manager at Harrow Council, said: “It is so important to work with residents on our estates so we understand what their priorities are, and we can then work with other agencies and charities to focus on these. There was a really lovely spirit on the estate at the launch event.”
