Pitshanger Community Association works for the benefit of the Pitshanger area. Pitshanger is a community of about 3,000 households located within the London Borough of Ealing. The Pitshanger area already has a lot going for it - a lovely park, an excellent range of local shops and restaurants on Pitshanger Lane and great community spirit. The PCA aims to foster and improve on all of this, and more.
So what does the PCA actually do?
We run two major community events each year, Party In The Park & Light Up The Lane. These events have the twin objectives of bringing the local community together and raising funds for PCA community projects and local charities.
Pitshanger Park has been the focus of recent PCA projects. Working with Ealing Council Parks and Countryside Department, we have provided improved play apparatus, a set of picnic tables and new gates at the park entrance. We have also made donations to a number of local charities including Meadow House Hospice.
Each year we hold public meetings on local issues. Lively debates have taken place on traffic and parking, graffiti, vandalism and prevention of crime. We also publish a newsletter, which keeps members informed of local events and PCA activities.
With over 1,000 members, the PCA can speak for a significant proportion of the local population, something that carries weight in our dealings with local decision takers.
As for the future, we are in the process of establishing a charitable trust to focus on fund raising for major projects, particularly in Pitshanger Park.
