Visitors to Pinner Village Show on 12th September will be able to tour West House in Pinner Memorial Park, and the Heath Robinson Gallery. The people of Pinner originally bought West House, as a war memorial after the Second World War, but it fell into dereliction. Local residents raised £1.5m to reopen it in 2010 as a centre for the community and the arts. The House will be open from 11am to 4pm.
Under construction next to West House is a Museum to William Heath Robinson, who lived in Pinner. £127,000 is still needed to match a £1.3m grant from the Heritage Lottery Fund.
Budding engineers and inventors from the St Helen’s School Heath Robinson Club will demonstrate their “Mad Magical Mechanical Music Machine”, a contraption inspired by Heath Robinson. Come along to hear and see it! Any donations will help develop the Heath Robinson Museum.
