The Pinner Association’s four Concerts in the Park brought in massive crowds once again this year and raised over £1,500 for local causes.
After PinnerNews reported the success of the first Concert in the Park in last month’s edition, the last three concerts followed suit, as audiences continued to attend regardless of the odd rainy spell during performances.
Over the course of the four Sundays, from July 28 to August 18, the audience were treated to music from Harrow Steel, Rats Rolling Blues and Jazz, the Big Stardust band and, making their debut, Simply Gray.
As an annual community event now in its 18th year, the free concerts at Pinner Memorial Park are a fixture on the Pinner calendar.
Concert Organiser Julie Waller said: “Without the volunteers who turn up come rain or sunshine to help set-up/pack away or steward, these events wouldn’t take place. Some people arrive with tables and chairs as well as a picnic. It’s wonderful to see people enjoying the music and making an afternoon of it. This makes it all worthwhile.”
“The bucket collection for West House and Heath Robinson Museum raised over £1,600. Thank you.
“We will be at the Pinner Village Show organised by the Rotary Club of Pinner on the September 14 for the first time ever, so do pop in and see us.”
