The Friends of Pinn Meadows

Friends of Pinn Meadows is a resourceful and energetic residents’ group dedicated to the preservation and maintenance of the open green spaces and river banks between Elmbridge Drive and Bury Street, Ruislip in the London Borough of Hillingdon.

The group was originally formed to oppose the construction of a second artificial grass hockey pitch, with ugly high fences and intrusive floodlights amid the grassland, trees and river bank of King’s College Playing Fields.

Without losing our campaigning spirit, Friends of Pinn Meadows now work closely with Hillingdon Council’s Green Spaces team to ensure the free enjoyment of the Meadows by all local people. map

Twelve cheerful volunteers joined Countryside and Conservation Officer Dragana Knezevic to complete the last Working Party of 2017.

The ground being too hard due to a sharp frost over the previous night there was no digging or wading to be done. Instead the morning was devoted to litter picking.  

Nine bags of assorted discarded debris were the result, including a weighty section of iron pipe.

The wild life camera continues to prove its worth, with additional stills and videos added to this web site.  New video includes a jay, a sparrowhawk, an owl in flight, a cat on the prowl and a kingfisher all recorded visiting the riverside and a branch spanning the stream.  

Following the Working Party a presentation was made to Dragana in recognition for all the help and encouragement she gave us throughout 2017.
