Bits and Pieces

Some interesting Picture of Pinner - displayed from a book in the Undertakers by Love Lane a while back. I remember Pinner as featured in the first photo.  My brother did a Saturday job in Budgens when he was still at school.

The undertakers in Love Lane have brightened up the pavement with this floral display

Inside Cafe Amici in Bridge Street, a great place for a quality snack meal, and coffee - their frapucchino is delicious.  This is actually a picture taken in it's time as Fratelli's.  Things have greatly improved, as has prices since it changed its name again.  A really friendly atmosphere, give Harris and Hoole the cold shoulder!

A lovely autumnal shot of a tree taken in a footpath leading from Ashridge Gardens.  Ashridge Gardens has a very tatty road and pavements - shame on TFL or the council - stop patching up and renew the road and pavements please.

Pantomime Evening

Yesterday evening I popped out at 7.30pm to get some bits from Sainsbury, also to get some chips on the way home.

I had forgotten that it was the evening of the Pinner Pantomime shopping experience.

The High Street was crowded, there was a roundabout and food stalls there. The morris dancers gathered a superb crowd, but blocked the way to supermarket.  Gibbs Gillespie and Andrew Pearce were heaving under the weight of non house buyers jostling for free wine, etc.

Earlier in the day I took this picture of the window display in the Cancer Research Shop in Bridge Street.

I have just learnt that the Cancer Research Shop exhibit was not judged by the Pinner Pantomime Judges, It seems that charity shops have to stump up £60 entrance and then if they are not around when the judge arrives do not get included in the competition.  There are meanies in the Pinner Pantomime organisers!

Thankfully it was a dry evening, and it finished with a grand firework display.  I tried to get some pictures of it, but by the time I got batteries for my main camera, it had finished.
