PINNER was drenched by rain on Saturday but it wasn't enough to dampen the fun of crowds who flocked to the annual Pinner Village Show.
The show, which was held in Pinner Memorial Park, provided a day of fun in an otherwise sodden weekend with food and craft stalls, raffle prizes, and displays such as Morris dancing.
A bouncy castle and go-karts entertained children and there was even a miniature steam railway to delight the young boy in all men.
But the Harrow Concert Band and planned tug of war were unable to battle against the stormy weather and had to be cancelled.
Originally set up by the Round Table of Pinner, the organisation of the show was taken over by the Rotary club four years ago and is a community event.
But the Pinner Rotary Club also uses the day to fundraise.
In the past it has successfully raised money for various charities.
Last year the Pinner Village Show raised £3,700 for the British Heart Foundation.
This year it is supporting the Parkinson's Disease Society but the total had not been tal-lied as the Harrow Observer went to press.
David Bays of Pinner, and a member of the Rotary Club, said of the day: "The spirit of the whole thing was tremendous.
"There was a lot of fun to be had and despite the rain, the people who came really enjoyed themselves."
