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
