Sunny Pinner Village Show 'busiest in living memory'
Hundreds of people flocked to a Pinner park at the weekend for an annual community event that was “the busiest in living memory”.
Families took advantage of the children’s fairground, bouncy castle and miniature railway at the Pinner Village Show on Saturday in Memorial Park, Chapel Lane, between 11am-4pm.
The event, in its 23rd year, also attracted a record number of stallholders selling a variety of goods, according to Brian Glozier of the Rotary Club of Pinner, which organised the show.
He said: “It was a great success as far as we’re concerned and I think the weather played a big part in it by being so glorious.
“I have no problem in saying it’s the busiest show we’ve had in living memory – both in terms of the number of people who came and the amount of stallholders.
“We had several people stopping on their way out just to tell us what a great time they had, and I think that says it all really.”
Volunteers are busy counting up the amount of cash raised for three charities chosen to benefit from a raffle held at the end of the show.
More than 20 restaurants donated vouchers for a meal for two for the raffle, which was held to raise money for Macmillan Cancer Support, children’s special needs charity Kids Can Achieve and skin disfigurement charity RAFT.
